We are well into September and I’m feeling like everything fall flavored...even though we have highs in the 80s this week. But that’s not stopping me from making everything pumpkin flavored in the hopes of making fall weather come too. Last year, I shared a recipe for Pumpkin Cheesecake Oatmeal and today I’m sharing this year’s version of Pumpkin PIe Oatmeal. I’ve added in some ginger plus my new favorite oatmeal add-in: flaxseeds!
Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
1 cup liquid of choice (I’m currently using almond milk)
½ cup oats
½ cup 100% pumpkin puree
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
½ tsp ginger
1 tsp brown sugar
6 tbsp egg whites
2 tbsp ground flaxseeds
Bring liquid to a low boil on the stove top.
Turn down heat slightly and stir in oats, pumpkin puree and spices.
Cook for 4-5 minutes until liquid is absorbed and oats are soft.
Stir in egg whites, ground flaxseeds and brown sugar. Let cook for about 30 seconds more then enjoy!
