Pumpkin Protein Oatmeal

This oatmeal recipe is fantastic and perfect for fall and winter. You can add sweetener if you'd like but I find it tastes better without it. This is super creamy!




1/4 c. skim, almond, hemp or rice milk                                    

6 Tbsp. water

1/4 c. old-fashioned oats

Pinch cinnamon

Pinch nutmeg

1/8 c. canned organic pumpkin

1/8 c. water

1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder, I used Sun Warrior Rice Protein Powder

1/8 c. sliced almonds


In a small saucepan, bring milk and 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 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Once the liquid is absorbed, stir in pumpkin. Set aside.

Combine water and protein powder in a separate bowl. Mix with a fork until protein powder is absorbed. Pour protein mixture over oatmeal and stir to combine. Makes 1 serving.
