Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Sue posted this on her blog and made some for breakfast and it is AMAZING!!! - Vera

(Makes 4 servings)

(Note: the egg whites were my addition in order to get more protein. They are optional.)


1 cup dry oats, cooked

1/2 cup pumpkin purée

1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice (no sugar added)

4 egg whites (optional)

1/4 cup pecans per serving

Maple syrup to taste


Step 1 – Cook the oats according to package directions.

Step 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.

Step 3 – Put some oats in a bowl and top with pecans and maple syrup.

Eat and Enjoy!
