So many low carbers have been talking about Hot Pumpkin Cereal ever since the 90 Day Low Carb Challenge began. Me being a huge oatmeal lover, I really wanted to give it a try.
I followed the basic recipe shared and found it a bit blah. I ended up adding quite a bit more sweetener and some PB2 to change the flavor. Finally, I ended up with a thicker (I like thick oatmeal) cereal with a flavor that appealed to me. Here’s my recipe:
Low Carb Hot Pumpkin & PB2 Cereal
- 1/2 Cup Ricotta Cheese 6 nc
- 1 Egg
- 1.4 Cup Canned Pumpkin 3 nc
- Pinch Salt
- 3 Tsp Xylitol
- 2 Tbsp PB2 3 nc ( I get mine at Netrition.)
- 2 Tsp Flax Seed Meal – 1 nc
For instructions on preparation, please go read the original recipe on About.com
Total net carbs: 17 – (Wha?!)
Not so low carb is it? Well, I couldn’t finish the bowl by a long shot – so that’s probably two servings in that recipe.
I liked it – but I didn’t love it. Not enough to go through the work anyways.
