Bowled Over – 5 Chai Pumpkin

 

Top your carb and fiber rich oatmeal with sweet or savory toppings for a tasty nutritional boost.

Cook 1-cup steel-cut oatmeal according to package directions. When the oatmeal is cooked, add mix-ins to the pot and stir until heated through. Divide the oatmeal into 4 bowls and garnish each serving with toppings.

Pumpkin adds natural sweetness and beta-carotene, a key antioxidant for immune health. Pure maple syrup – particularly the darker varieties – is a source of additional antioxidant firepower.

Stir into the pot:

  • ¼ cup reduced-fat milk
  • ½ cup canned pumpkin puree
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ground ginger
  • ¼ teaspoon ground nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

Top each serving with:

  • 1 teaspoon chopped pecans, chopped
  • 1 teaspoon unsweetened coconut flakes
  • 2 teaspoons pure maple syrup
  • 285 calories
  • 42 grams carbs
  • 7 grams fiber
