Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal

Prep time: 2 minutes

Cook time: 5 minutes

Serves: 1

Ingredients:

  • 1 cup milk of choice, or water
  • 1/2 cup regular rolled oats
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 tsp maple syrup (may omit or reduce)
  • pinch of salt
  • Java PB2 (ingredients below)
    • 3 tbsp PB2
    • water
    • 1/4 tsp instant coffee granules (adjust to preferences)

Directions:

  • Bring milk to a boil, add oats, and reduce heat to medium (you may add flax seed at this point).
  • Wait a minute or two, then add pumpkin puree and stir.
  • While oatmeal is cooking, prepare the Java PB2. Add water to the PB2 a tsp at a time until you reach the desired consistency. Mix in instant coffee granules.
  • Once more of the liquid in oatmeal has dissolved, add vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt. Stir.
  • When oatmeal reaches desired consistency, transfer to a bowl. Top with Java PB2, add a splash of milk, and any other additional toppings (pecans or walnuts suggested).

Eat like a champion!
