Pumpkin Muesli-put a twist on breakfast

From Self's November 2008 feature of Eat Healthy All Week, here is a recipe for Pumpkin Muesli.

Pumpkin Muesli

Serves 1


  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1/4 cup quick-cooking oats
  • 1/2 cup nonfat plain yogurt
  • 2 tablespoons honey
  • 1 teaspoon grated lemon zest
  • 1 sliced fresh strawberry
  • 2 tablespoons slivered almonds


  1. Combine pumpkin and oats in a bowl. Cover with plastic wrap and microwave for 20 seconds; set aside 10 minutes (so liquid will be absorbed). Mix yogurt, honey and zest in another bowl. Swirl in pumpkin mixture and top with berries and almonds.
