Pumpkin Pie Protein Oatmeal

In the spirit of “fall” (even though it’s 90 degrees outside today), I decided to make something new for my post-workout lunch.  I’m generally aiming for high carbs and protein on workout days.  I love oatmeal.  I love pumpkin pie (actually, just pie in general).  I need protein to retain my muscle while I continue to diet.  So thus here we go:

Ingredients

  • 3/4 cup old fashioned oats
  • 1.5 cup unsweetened almond milk (you could sub water or regular milk)
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree (from a can)
  • 2 tablespoons raisins
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 2 packets truvia (or splenda, sugar, etc)
  • 4 tablespoons sugar free syrup
  • 1 scoop Any Whey unflavored protein powder.

Directions

Come on, it’s oatmeal.  How hard do you think it is? Mix it all up, heat until boiling, then reduce heat, simmer for 5 minutes, then take a bath in it.
