Hey guys!! ahh, it's been too long! I'm so sorry I've neglected my poor website. I have been super busy with school and working on my own fitness. Anyways…because it's beautiful fall now, I thought I'd celebrate my return with an awesome recipe inspired by the season! These oats are superrr creamy and rich & very filling! I ate double this serving size and was extremely full so I lowered it down to half the serving size which is still a lot! But they are so tasty, you will have no problem finishing the bowl!
Creamy Maple Pumpkin Pie Oats
Here's the recipe:
-dash of salt
-2/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
-1/4 cup canned pumpkin
-1/4 tsp vanilla extract
-1/2 tsp cinnamon (or to taste)
-pinch of ginger, nutmeg & allspice
-2 tsp Truvia (or more to taste)
-1/4 ounce of pecans (about 1.5-2 tbsp)
-1/5 tbsp PB & Co Mighty Maple Butter * (or sub, 1/2 tsp natural PB + 1/4 tsp maple extract or 2 tsp sugar-free or natural maple syrup )
Directions: Combine almond milk oats and salt in a medium sized microwavable bowl and microwave for 1:40-2:00min or until oats have reached your desired consistency(you want them a little runny since you will be adding pumpkin and PB). Next stir your pumpkin into the cooked oats, add your spices & sweetener, top with maple butter and pecans! Stir just before digging in. Enjoy your beautiful fall breakfast!
**Tip** These oats would also be great topped with apple slices or raisins & paired with a side of scrambled egg whites**
