Pumpkin Cheesecake for Breakfast

March 6, 2010 at 8:38 am 12 comments

Pumpkin cheesecake oatmeal that is!! Of course!

It’s not often that the husband sees what I eat for breakfast, but on the rare occasion he does, all he has to say is “Eww”.

I think perhaps I can understand why:

gross oats

But it’s not “eww” it’s “yummm!”

This morning’s mix was my oat combo with Amazing Grass powder, pumpkin, cottage cheese, and pecans.

Topped with wheat berries and extra pecans & coconut, along with the obligatory spoonful of peanut butter.

Side note: for everyone that says they can’t taste the peanut butter in their oats, here’s my secret: Don’t stir it in! Let it melt a little in the spoon and slide it off on top of the oats. Then you have a peanut butter coated spoon for the first few bites, and then you can scoop up a little more PB with each bite after that. I always have enough to get through even the very last bite!

(Gee who knew it was such a process to eat oatmeal haha).

Yay for a sunny Saturday!!! It’s almost trying to be spring!

    ok so i’ll totally try to not mix the pb in and see how that goes. guess i’ll just have to triple the amount of pb because i want gobs of it in every bite haha!

    I totally agree! NEVER mix in the nut butter! Let it sit on top and take a tiny bit with each bite!!

    I use the same pb technique!! Yes… I just called it a technique 🙂

    Btw, where do you find wheat berries? From the bulk bins or on the grains aisle or what?

      I got mine from the bulk bins, but some stores have it in the dried beans or boxed grains/pastas section!

    That looks good to me…although I must be the only person in the world who doesn’t like the Amazing Grass powder.

    Happy Saturday, Heather!!!

      I don’t like it by itself– just a little mixed in here and there…I haven’t even gone through a whole sample-sized packet yet haha

    That looks like dessert for breakfast but it’s healthy!! Love it : )

    I’m gonna have to try these wheat berries everyone’s been throwing in the oats! They look like they would make a lovely textural component to a bowl of oatmeal.. YUM.

    I think I must have a heightened awareness to peanut butter because I never have a problem tasting it!

  • 11. lindsayruns  |  March 6, 2010 at 4:45 pm

    haha I mix it in so I DON’T have to taste it! I like having the fat in the mix, but pb doesn’t do it for me like ab does.

  • 12. todayslady  |  March 6, 2010 at 6:13 pm

    The first time I had pb in my oats i stirred it in and couldnt taste it. It took me a few years to do it again. Thankfully when I tried it again I used the proper technique and just let it sit on top 🙂 I’ve never looked back!!
