I incorporate two superfoods, pumpkin and chia seeds, plus a whopping 10 grams fiber, into one wholesome bowl of morning goodness.

  • Prep time
  • Total Time
This recipe makes 1 Serving
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup 100% pure pumpkin puree
  • 2 teaspoons maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon toasted chopped almonds (or your favorite nut)

Combine the oats and 1 cup water in a microwave-safe bowl and cook according to package directions.

Add the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, chia seeds, cinnamon, and vanilla. Mix thoroughly and microwave until hot, about 1-2 minutes (add an extra 1/4 to 1/2 cup water if a thinner consistency is desired).

Sprinkle the nuts on top.
