Health Benefits Of Pumpkin Oatmeal
This pumpkin-baked oatmeal recipe is as healthy as it is delicious. With the help of whole foods and collagen peptides, your body will be loving this baked pumpkin oatmeal as much as you do!
- Heart health—Pumpkin is high in vitamins A & C, which can help to fight oxidative damage and boost immunity. This is especially important for cooler months.
- Digestion friendly—Just one cup of oats contains up to 16 grams of fiber. Fiber helps regulate digestion and can help you feel fuller while eating less. This occurs from the high-nutrient count without all the calories.
- Kidney health—Bananas are a healthy source of potassium (anyone remember the King Kong reference from middle school?) Potassium is an important nutrient for maintaining healthy kidneys.
- Hair, skin & nail health—Super Youth collagen contains all five types of collagen, which are structural proteins that help our hair, skin, and nails look and feel their best.
- Anti-Inflammatory—Cinnamon is a great immune booster. It has been shown to lower lipids, and also act as an antioxidant that helps produce anti-inflammatory properties.
How To Make Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal
This baked pumpkin oatmeal is so easy to make that it may become your new go-to breakfast. First, you’ll want to preheat your oven to 400ºF. Then, combine the banana, oats, milk, pumpkin purée, Super Youth collagen, maple syrup, vanilla, baking powder, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, and salt and let sit until the oven is fully heated. This will allow the oats to soak up the flavor of each ingredient. Once ready, pour your oat mixture into a greased ramekin or baking dish and bake for 25 to 30 minutes. Remove from the oven once done and let cool for about 5 to ten minutes before serving.
This is the perfect breakfast for eating warm or making ahead of time and taking on the go. It’s sweet enough to satisfy but savory enough to enjoy in the morning. It’s a perfect afternoon treat, and I’m even guilty of adding a few chocolate chips into the batter and making it as dessert. Whenever you make these delicious pumpkin oats, I know you’ll love it!
