Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin, pumpkin, “how do I love thee? Let me count the ways….” Yes, I’m obsessed with pumpkin! And it’s pumpkin season! If you are a pumpkin junkie like me, then you will “fall” for this pumpkin oatmeal recipe, inspired by Lisa Lillien (aka Hungry Girl). It’s filling, super healthy, and oh, so delectable!

Health tips: Low fat, vegetarian, heart healthy, anti-inflammatory, *diabetes-friendly, kid-friendly

Steps:

  1. Place all ingredients in a microwave-safe bowl. Place in microwave for 45 seconds. Stir, then put back into the microwave for another 45 seconds. Take out, stir. Add a touch more of the almond milk if the oatmeal is too thick. Top with a little spray of whip cream. Indulge!

*If you have diabetes, please replace the syrup and whip cream, with sugar-free products. Many stores carry sugar-free maple syrup and whip cream. Also, please use the vanilla almond milk marked “less sugar”, “low sugar”, or “unsweetened”.
