Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal Casserole
2 cups old fashioned oats
1 cup prepared pumpkin (100% pure canned or home baked)
1/2 cup pecan pieces
1 cup fresh cranberries (I used dried)
2 tsp. pumpkin pie spice, no sugar added
4 cups skim milk
1/4 cup honey
2 tsp. vanilla extract
2 scoops vanilla protein powder (the kind I like is called Designer Whey and I got it from Trader Joe’s)
Preheat oven to 400 degrees F.
In a casserole dish (9×13), blend together the almond milk, pumpkin, pumpkin spice, honey and vanilla. Stir gently until completely combined.
Add the oats, pecans, cranberries and raisins. Stir briefly to combine.
Bake for 45 minutes or until the casserole is soft and cooked through.
