Here's another fall recipe that I'm SO excited to try once I hit my goal weight here in a week or two.  Just remember to watch the serving size and I'd rather add Truvia than brown sugar (or none at all) so you don't increase the amount of sugar for your meal.  Most likely the pumpkin and raisins will sweeten it up for you.  Yum!  If you can't tell I love fall recipes!

Pumpkin Oatmeal

Ingredients:
  • 2 cups quick or old-fashioned oats
  • 3 cups fat-free milk
  • 1/2 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tbsp raisins
  • Brown sugar to taste
Preparation:
Place oatmeal in a microwave-safe bowl and stir in milk. Microwave on high for 2-3 minutes. Remove from microwave and stir in pumpkin puree, spice and cinnamon. Heat for 40-60 seconds, or until heated through. Stir in raisins. Sweeten with brown sugar if necessary and enjoy.

Stovetop method

Bring milk to a boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in oats and cook on a medium heat for about 5 minutes. Add pumpkin and spices and stir until heated through. Stir in raisins just before serving.

Serves 4.
