For the release of Finding Dory, I kick-started the morning by making a Nemo-inspired oatmeal recipe. It is a delicious and creamy pumpkin and chocolate oatmeal. And the best part? It is all natural, healthy, and 21 Day Fix approved.
It was simple to make, and a huge hit with my toddler (and she’s very picky). Whose ready to make this clown fish-colored oatmeal recipe?
For two servings you will need:
-2 servings of rolled oats, or 2 packets of Quacker’s instant Oatmeal (not flavored).
-1 can of pumpkin puree
-1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon (many grocery stores now have sections where you can buy spices by the measurement, so you don’t have to purchase a whole jar.
-1 Tbsp cocoa powder
-2 tsp honey
If you are doing the 21 Day Fix, the container counts are: 1 yellow, 1/2 purple, 1 tsp per serving.
First, you will want to cook your oatmeal according to package directions. To make my whole preparation simpler, I like to use a huge bowl to mix all the ingredients together, then split them up into two seperate serving bowls.
Once your oatmeal is cooked, put into a mixing bowl, and add 5 Tablespoons of pumpkin puree.
Next, add in your pumpkin pie 1/4 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon (I used pumpkin pie spice to help bring out the flavor of the pumpkin puree).
Stir your ingredients together so that they are mixed well.
Your oatmeal may have cooled off a little from adding in the pumpkin puree, so you may need to pop it into the microwave for 15-20 seconds.
Once your oatmeal is warmed to your liking, divide your oatmeal into your seperate bowls for serving.
Then, to make your “Nemo stripes” add 1/2 Tablespoon of cocoa powder on top of each bowl.
Now add your drizzles of honey (approximately 1 teaspoon per bowl) on top of your oatmeal.
Now you can add a raw nut topping of your choice to your oatmeal, stir well, and enjoy!
You will have some leftover pumpkin puree, which will be perfect to either make this dish again later in the week, or to just make a pumpkin oatmeal without chocolate.
