Hi, I'm Diane Hoch from the Food Evolution and today we're going to making a maple glazed coconut oatmeal with pumpkin which is a fantastic recipe for healthy breakfast fiber. I find so many people ask what a healthy breakfast is, how to add more fiber into their diet and I think this is a fantastic recipe you'll enjoy. So we start out with the rolled oat, you know oats are high in protein, fiber, and iron so I love using them and they're the basis for a lot of breakfast recipes so here we put rolled oats. I also like to add steel cut oats so we're mixing our dry ingredients so that the rolled oats, the steel cut oats, another ingredient I love is coconut, anything with coconut I'm a big fan of but this is coconut flower, chia powder. Chia seeds are something that's getting a lot of recognition for these days. People are using chia seeds and things and it's a great way to add more fiber, protein and again iron. Pumpkin seeds, you know seeds are a fantastic way to get all those things into your diet as well. This is coconut milk, coconut milk is such a wonderful ingredient as well. This is pumpkin so pumpkin puree, you can actually use pumpkin from the can. We're going to put the pumpkin puree into our coconut milk. Sweetness, so we're talking about sweetness right, raisins, maple syrup. You know people are wary of sugar and they say well you know too much sugar, this is not a lot, what a few tablespoons of maple syrup and it comes from trees right so it's a natural ingredient, it's not processed and it just adds that sweetness again. Where would be without cinnamon and nutmeg with pumpkins so cinnamon, we're gonna that into our wet ingredient as well as some nutmeg and pour into our dry. So we're gonna mix this all together, oh my gosh it smells so good. This we're gonna mix it up nicely and then it's gonna go right into our beautiful pan. Okay,I smell this, I smell the healthy value in this dish, healthy breakfast fiber it's really, really great. Okay, so from here we're gonna take a little maple syrup and just all over the top swirl it over and then some brown sugar. So again, really good too and it's not a lot. So we put this in the oven at 350 and we bake it for about 40 minutes. Great recipe for healthy breakfast fiber, this is just a delicious breakfast that will satiate you and keep you full and healthy until lunch.
