Take Heart!

Spiced Pumpkin Oatmeal

Oatmeal is touted for being a heart-healthy food, but why? Oats have a significant amount of soluble fiber, the type of fiber that helps to pull cholesterol out of your body. Serve this warm breakfast staple with nondairy milk and for a special treat try pumpkin spice flavored soymilk. Add a pinch of ground cloves to pack in extra flavor.

Makes 4 servings


2 cups old-fashioned oats

4 cups water

1/3 cup raisins

1/4 cup dried cranberries

1 cup canned pumpkin

2 tablespoons agave nectar

4 teaspoons ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract


- Combine all ingredients in saucepan.

- Cook over medium heat until liquid is mostly absorbed, stirring occasionally.
