Who doesn't love a slice of pumpkin pie? :) Well this pumpkin pie proat recipe is a healthy second that you can enjoy every chilly, autumn morning.
All it requires is that you have puréed pumpkin at hand and that can easily be made at home. I just cut and pit my pumpkins, put it in the oven at 200 C till tender and then I use a blending wand to purée it. I wait till its cooled to put into a tupper and store in the fridge.
Take advantage of the wondeful pumpkin season because they are cheap, lpw on calories, give great flavor and are full of fiber, antioxidants and vitamins. So go get your pumpkins!
1 ripe banana
3 tbs pumpkin purée
1/2 cup milk (of your preference)
1/2 - 2/3 cup oats (depending on how thick you like it)
1 scoop protein powder (I used Bodylab's Whey 100 Vanilla)
2 tbs maple syrup (I used Walden Farms Pancake syrup)
1/4 tsp cinnamon
dash of nutmeg
dash of cardemom (optional)
Topping: Whatever you like! I used raisins, goji berries and a little more maple syrup.
Mash the banana in a bowl with a fork
Mix in the pumpkin purée, syrup and milk
In a seperate bowl mix the oats, protein powder, cinnamon, nutmeg and cardemom well together and mix well into the banana/pumpkin purée and transfer to a pot.
At medium heat, heat the porridge mix till hot, constantly stirring with a whisk to make nice and creamy.
Serve, add toppings and enjoy! :)
Don't have protein powder? No problem! Just switch it out for a little extra oats, add some vanilla extract and sweeten with stevia or another alternative. I would highly recommend Sukrin Gold since the brown sugar flavor would go well with the other flavors.
