I love oatmeal, and I love pumpkin, and I love pie…so when I saw a friend of mine post this recipe I just had to share. This is from Shelly at Mom Getting Fit.
Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal
Makes 1 serving
1/2 cup dry oats (NOT the instant kind)
1 cup water
3 tbsp liquid egg whites
1/8 tsp baking powder
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice (apple pie spice or cinnamon work too)
1 tbsp sugar-free vanilla coffee flavoring (I use Archer Farms from Target OR Torani)*
2 tsp brown sugar splenda*
3 tbsp can pumpkin
* A note on sweetness: I’m use to eating my oatmeal plain! I’ve come to like it that way, so all of my baked oatmeals are not overpowering with sweetness! They may or may not be sweet enough for you. The best part about it, is you can adjust the sweetness to your liking. I’d just add a lil at time until it’s as sweet as you like it. And of course you can use all natural sweeteners like honey or raw sugar instead. In both cases remember that the nutritional values may change anytime you make a change!
Mix all of the above together in a small oven-safe container and bake at 350º for 35 minutes.
When it comes out of the oven the pumpkin has somewhat risen to the top. You can eat it like this (see pic above). I topped it with a dollop of fat-free cool whip just to see how it tasted! Oh goodness, super yummy!
Or mix it all together and eat it like this:
