I love to eat oatmeal in the morning, especially while Autumn and a cool breeze rolls in.
In a pot on the stove I combined:
- 3/4 cup of organic pumpkin puree
- 3/4 cup of old fashioned rolled oats – I like Bob’s Redmill Organic Gluten Free brand
- spring water (you could use a dairy-free milk)
- all spice
- stevia (you could substitute dates or maple syrup)
Mix well on the stove until warm and pour into a bowl. Top with extra cinnamon. I like my oatmeal to be more on the thin side – I don’t like super thick oatmeal, so this was perfect for me and perfect on the cool Fall San Diego mornings! You could also dress it up with raisins, sliced banana, or pecans!
There are 5 grams of protein and 4 grams of fiber in a half cup of oats!
A half cup of organic pumpkin puree has 4 grams of fiber and 380% Daily Value of your Vitamin A!
My bowl above had a bit more than that, so I had about 10 grams of fiber at breakfast, plus 5 grams of protein, and tons of vitamin A.
Are you on a breakfast kick? What sort of breakfast are you loving lately?
