This is a tasty concoction I came up one morning. I can't tolerate too much oatmeal, so the pumpkin, flaxseed, pumpkin seed kernels, and nuts really fill out this dish. Substitute other nuts as you wish. Feel free to top with vanilla yogurt--I just like plain because of the flavor contrast. Also, you can use other spreads, but I've found that there's something truly delicious about the combination of pumpkin and apricot. Enjoy!
My Private Note
Units: US | Metric
- 1Put quick-cooking oats into a microwave-safe bowl. Add milk and microwave the oatmeal about one minute.
- 2Remove bowl from microwave; the oatmeal will be quite sticky and possibly a little dry on top. Stir in the pumpkin and 1 tablespoon of the margarine.
- 3Return bowl to microwave and cook for about twenty seconds.
- 4Remove bowl from microwave. Stir in the remaining 1/2 tablespoon of margarine and the apricot fruit spread, until the oatmeal starts to look creamier. Then stir in the flaxseed.
- 5Return bowl to microwave and cook for another twenty to thirty seconds.
- 6Remove bowl from microwave, top with pumpkin seed kernels, almonds, and plain yogurt.
