Everyone raves about the PSL from Starbucks, but I’ve still never tried it! I know, I know I need to cave into the trend and try it, but in the mean time, I have a different (and healthier) pumpkin spiced treat to enjoy: Pumpkin Protein Oatmeal. This dish is a hearty breakfast that is way more exciting than a plain bowl of oats. You could also make it as a healthy dessert alternative! Hop on the pumpkin/fall recipe bandwagon and give this recipe a try!
Pumpkin Protein Oatmeal
½ cup quick oats
¼ cup canned pumpkin puree
1 scoop of unflavored protein powder of your choice
1 tsp. brown sugar
Couple dashes of ground cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice
Optional: 1 tbsp. chopped pecans
Makes 1 serving
Calories: about 300
Make oatmeal in microwave according to instructions. Once cooked, mix in pumpkin puree, protein powder, brown sugar and spices. Keep it like this, or top with the chopped pecans.
It’s simple, quick, healthy, delicious, and gives you flavors of fall; thus, making it the perfect treat. So get your ingredients and enjoy this any time of the day!
