I love the concept of desserts for breakfast, especially when they are as healthy as this recipe. The hearty consistency of oats will have you feeling full for hours without the overwhelming "too full" feeling.
- 2 cups instant oats
- 1 ¾ cups skim milk
- 1 cup pumpkin purée
- 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 2 teaspoons cinnamon
- 2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
- ½ cup walnuts
In a saucepan, mix the oats and milk. Cook over medium heat for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally so that the oats do not burn.
Add pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and dark brown sugar. Stir in most of the walnuts, saving a handful for garnish. Serve and garnish with the remaining walnuts.
