pumpkin pie oatmeal

You just cant go wrong with oatmeal as part of a healthy diet.  I dont want to say just for breakfast, as Ive been known to eat oatmeal both for lunch and dinner as well.  Oatmeal is neutral enough where you can really dress it up and make it quite yummy!


  • 1/2c lowfat milk
  • 3/4c water
  • 1/2c old fashioned large flakes oats
  • pinch cinnamon
  • pinch nutmeg
  • 1/4c canned pumpkin
  • 1/4c sliced almonds
  • 1/4c water
  • 1 scoop vanilla whey (25g protein)
  • Splenda to taste

In a small pot, bring milk and water to a boil over medium heat.  Add the oats, cinnamon and nutmeg.  Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is absorbed (about 7-10 minutes), stirring occasionally.  Once liquid is absorbed, stir in pumpkin, almonds and splenda and set aside.  Combine 1/4c water adn whey protein in a separate bowl.  mix with fork until protein is dissolved.  For a smoother consistency, mix protein powder with water in a blender or food processor and blend until protein is dissolved. Pour protein mixture over oatmeal and serve.  Makes 2 servings.
