“Recipe of the Week: Clean Eating Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal”

Happy Monday friends 🙂
Nothing like some pumpkin pie oatmeal in the morning, especially with Thanksgiving approaching. I liked it with the egg whites and the added protein makes it more satisfying.
Enjoy 🙂

CLEAN EATING PUMPKIN PIE OATMEALclean-eating-pumpkin-pie-oatmeal-v-1

(Makes 4 servings)

INGREDIENTS:

  • 1 cup dry oats, cooked
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin purée
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, no sugar added
  • 4 egg whites (optional)
  • 1/4 cup pecans per serving
  • Maple syrup to taste

DIRECTIONS:

  1. Cook the oats according to package directions.
  2. In the last 5 minutes of cooking (just take a guess, the oats should basically be pretty much done cooking), quickly stir in the eggs, being sure to stir vigorously so they get well-distributed. Then, stir in the pumpkin purée and pumpkin spice.
  3. Put some oats in a bowl and top with pecans and maple syrup.
  4. Note: the egg whites were added in order to get more protein. They are optional.
