I love Fall! Today is the first day of fall. I woke up thinking I needed to make pumpkin oatmeal – and remembered a blog I had read at Closet Cooking – one of my fave food blogs. I tweaked his a little – and it was so yummy!
1/2 cup oats
3/4 cup water
1 T canned pumpkin puree
3/4 T brown sugar
1/4 tsp chopped walnuts
dash of cinnamon and nutmeg
2 T milk
1 crumbled ginger cookie
Cook the first two for 1.40 seconds – then add the rest.
260 calories – 3 fat grams, 4.5 fiber – very healthy and filling for breakfast!
Updated – morning 2: I did things a little differently this morning: instead of walnuts I put 2 t of craisins and lowered the brown sugar to 1 1/2 tsp. It was very yummy – I think I may have this tomorrow morning too! – 190, 2.7, 4.8 – wow – those walnuts add a lot!
