1 cup dry oats, cooked
1/2 cup pumpkin purée
1 tsp. pumpkin pie spice
4 egg whites for protein (optional)
1/4 cup pecans per serving (I love using the candied pecans)
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.
I love to add:
- A splash of cream and vanilla
- A Tbs. of brown sugar per serving
