Pumpkin Love

So, you all know I have had to banish the granola for awhile. This was my new breakfast today, and I am in love!!

Rich and creamy tasting, and packed with lots of good, healthy stuff!
Pumpkin Oatmeal


1/2 cup milk (I use 2%)
1/2 cup water
1/2 cup (40 grams) rolled oats
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
5 grams protein powder
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
10 grams Craisins, chopped
drizzle of honey

Prepare the oats on the stove top using the milk and water. I added the protein powder with the oatmeal and spices and let them cook together. No lumps, so that was good. When the oats were done cooking, I turned off the heat and stirred in the pumpkin to let it warm through.
Put it into my bowl (which I thought might be too small!), sprinkled with chopped craisins and drizzled with honey.
Yum! This is not a sweet breakfast, so those of you that like that might want to add splenda, stevia or whatever sweetener you use.

    WOW what a great idea! I had used 1/2 a can of pumpkin for another recipe and didn’t know what to do with my leftover pumpkin…oatmeal here I come!

    ps try the brussel sprouts, you’ll love them!

    Love the pumpkin oatmeal–as always I make mine a little bit different than you. And I don’t know what it is this year, but I am obsessed with all things pumpkin! I am going to make myself some MORE pumpkin custard this afternoon. But its all good. There are a lot worse things I could be obsessed with, right?

    Have you tried brussel sprouts yet? I just ate a big bowl of them that I roasted. I like that they seem a lot more substantial than a lot of veggies.

    I think the power of suggestion and reading blogs has a lot to do with my food choices lately. I guess that’s okay as long as I stay away from the ‘cooking with chocolate blogs’–is there such a thing? I’d better not investigate!

    Hey, Lori. Great recipe. Thank you for posting. Did you try the brussels sprouts? I’m roasting some tonight. I get a craving for them every other week or so. I’m roasting them with asparagus, zucchini and red peppers tonight. I seriously go into veggie coma. Veggie zen, I call it 🙂
