Oatmeal is Delicious

I love oatmeal. Especially on cold fall mornings. I give complete credit to Beth WA for making me realize its deliciousness, and for introducing me to the blog Kath Eats so that I could learn how to make it.  Before I watched Kath’s how to video, the only oatmeal I knew how to make was the kind that came in a little envelope, to which I just added water.  Real stovetop oatmeal is SO much better, and really does not take much more time than the instant stuff. You also get a lot of bang for your buck (which according to me means: not a ton of Weight Watcher points, and it keeps me full for hours).  I use different mix-ins and toppings, depending on what I’m craving.   Sticking with my love of pumpkin, this is my oatmeal of the moment:

Pumpkin Oatmeal with Sweet and Salty Toppings

1/3 cup oats

1/3 cup water

1/3 cup skim milk

Cook according to Kath. (I use banana in every oatmeal except this one)

At the end, stir in:

1/3 to 1/2 cup of canned pumpkin

1 heaping tsp brown sugar

Dash of salt

A few dashes of cinnamon

Top with:

1 TBS Sunbutter

1 tsp white chocolate chips

1 tsp butterscotch chips

Enjoy.

According to my calculations, this is about 8 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

How do you take your oatmeal?
