RAD December – Pumpkin Oatmeal Minis

Tis the season for all things pumpkin and thanks to a huge pumpkin that I bought early in October, I have pumpkin puree out the wazoo!

This giant pumpkin made 22 cups of pumpkin puree!

Pumpkin and Oatmeal are two of my favorite foods and these mini oatmeal muffins make a great grab and go breakfast on busy mornings or a tasty after school snack.  I sometimes even keep a couple in my purse for those moments when I am out shopping and am suddenly starving.

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal Minis

In a bowl, combine:

1 c. oats

1/2 c. pumpkin puree (canned or fresth…either is fine)

1/2 c. milk

2 tbs. brown sugar

1 tsp. cinnamon

1/2 tsp. nutmeg

Mix together and spoon into a sprayed 12 cup muffin pan.

Bake at 350 for 15-20 minutes (until set).


Meal of the Week – Breakfast

I have recently fallen in love with overnight oats!  I know there are lots of healthy breakfast recipes out there, but most of them include almond milk or eggs and I am allergic to both, so I decided to offer an egg and nut free alternative that is both healthy and delicious.

Overnight Oats

1/3 c. oatmeal
1 tbs. chia seeds
1 c. milk of choice
Toppings of choice


Combine the oats, chia seeds and milk and let it sit in the refridgerator overnight.


The next morning, stir and add toppings.  I added chopped apple, sunbutter, and a few chocolate chips!


Its that simple! Yummy, healthy, breakfast goodness!
