Ingredients

  • ½ cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • ½ cup unsweetened almond milk
  • ½ cup water
  • ½ ripe banana sliced
  • ¼ cup canned pumpkin or homemade pumpkin puree canned or fresh
  • ¼ cup liquid egg whites or 2 egg whites from whole eggs
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla
  • ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • pinch of sea salt
  • sprinkle of extra cinnamon
  • toppings: almond butter granola and pecans

Instructions

  • In saucepan over high heat, combine the almond milk, water, banana slices, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, salt and cinnamon. Bring to a boil.
  • Once boiling, add the oatmeal. Turn the heat down and cook until most of the liquid is absorbed (about 5-6 minutes).
  • Add vanilla and egg whites into the oats and stir/whisk constantly. Stirring will keep the egg whites from cooking so that they turn into a thick, fluffy consistency instead. This should take 1-2 minutes.
  • Once all the liquid is absorbed and the oatmeal is cooked through, place in a bowl and add your favorite toppings. I used almond butter, granola and pecans, but feel free to use a variety of nuts, nut butter or sweeteners. Enjoy!
