Pumpkin Oatmeal

I love Oatmeal!! But sometimes I want more per serving and don’t want to up the carb & calorie stats. I know many people have the same feeling with cereal servings. What we would consider a normal serving is twice what the stats are giving us 😦 So this time around I added canned pure pumpkin. It added a deelish pumpkin taste and fiber, giving me more oatmeal for a tiny bit more calories. A 1/2 cup serving has just 40 calories, .5 gram of fat, 9 carbs, and 5 grams of fiber (and I only used 8 tablespoons for the whole recipe!) I loved this recipe and it was husband approved 🙂 Success!
