Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

We’re creatures of habit. Luckily, Dave and I can eat the same meals for a while before becoming bored. Lately, we’ve been on a baked oatmeal kick. I make a pan of it that makes six servings and we have a quick, healthy breakfast for three days.

I also use my blender to speed up the mixing process. Canned pumpkin varies in consistency. Sometimes it is very thick and hard to mix by hand. A quick spin in the blender makes mixing and clean up a breeze.

The recipe below will make six small servings. If you eat more in the morning, you can supplement with some more fruit, some extra plant protein, or just eat a bigger serving. We usually add some dried cranberries, but blueberries are also really tasty. Some chopped pecans or walnuts are also a delicious addition.

For a low calorie, lower sugar milk choice, we really like Trader Joe’s Unsweetened Almond Milk in the refrigerated section. It’s only 40 calories and 1 gram of sugar per cup and tastes really good.
