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
1 TBS Sunbutter
1 tsp white chocolate chips
1 tsp butterscotch chips
According to my calculations, this is about 8 Weight Watchers Points Plus.
How do you take your oatmeal?
