directions

  • In a small pot, bring milk and 6 tablespoons water to a boil over medium heat.
  • Add oats, cinnamon, and nutmeg, Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer until liquid is absorbed, about 7-10 minutes, stirring occasionally.
  • Once the liquid is absorbed, stir in pumpkin, almonds and (optional) sweetener; set aside.
  • Combine 1/8 cup water and protein powder in a separate bowl. Mix with a fork until protein is dissolved. For a smoother consistency, mix powder and water in a blender or food processor and blend until protein powder is dissolved. If sweetener is desired, choose your favorite natural sweetener, such as stevia.
  • Pour protein powder mixture over oatmeat and serve.

    This was pretty good. I used more pumpkin and water, so left out the milk. I also used pumpkin pie spice instead of nutmeg, and skipped the almonds. Overall this was a tasty and healthy breakfast. Thanks for the recipe.

    Delish. I didn't have stevia do I just sprinkled with sugar, and didn't have any protein powder. I will certainly make again. Made for zarr star tag.

    Delicious and healthy! I didn't use the almonds because I didn't have any, but still tasted great. This is a great way to give plain old oatmeal a boost in flavor. I used Splenda....so it probably wasn't as 'clean' but I don't even know what Stevia is!

    I really liked the oatmeal itself, but didn't care for the protein powder/water topping. Tasted like canned milk. I will make this again, as it is a good way to use leftover pumpkin, but I will maybe stir the protein powder into the oatmeal and use low-fat milk on top. I will also double the amounts, as suggested, as 1 serving was pretty small (for me!) :)

    Good oatmeal variation for the health conscious. I think I would double the recipe for a single serving next time. Thank you for posting! ~Potluck Tag~
