Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Something about a rainy, fall day makes me want something pumpkin.  Since I was still SWEATING profusely from hot yoga this morning, a pumpkin spice coffee sounded pretty awful.  This baked pumpkin oatmeal was perfect.



Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

1/2 cup oats
1/4 tsp vanilla extract
1/2 tsp cinnamon
1/8 tsp nutmeg
sweetener to taste... I used 1 tsp splenda.  You can use truvia, sugar, brown sugar, maple syrup, whatever.
1/4 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup skim milk
1/8 tsp salt
raisins, walnuts, brown sugar for the top


Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine raw oats, spices, pumpkin, and milk. Pour into a ramekin. Cook for 20 minutes.  Turn up the oven to broil, and cook for 2-3 minutes or until the top is browned and crusty.  Top with brown sugar, walnuts, raisins, craisins...
Serves one.
