Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
1/2 cup lowfat milk or almond milk
3/4 cup water
1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
1 pinch cinnamon
1 pinch nutmeg
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup sliced pecans
little brown sugar to taste (don't use too much...the protein powder will sweeten it, too)
1/4 cup water
1 scoop vanilla protein powder (~25g)
In a small pot, bring the milk and water to a boil over medium heat. Add the oats, cinnamon and nutmeg. Reduce heat and simmer until the liquid is absorbed (about 10 minutes), stirring occasionally. Once the liquid is absorbed, stir in the pumpkin, pecans, and brown sugar.
In a separate bowl, whisk together the water and protein powder until it looks like a creamy sauce. Pour the protein mixture over the oatmeal and serve.
