  • 1 cup Quaker Old- Fashioned Oats
  • 1 tsp ground mustard
  • 1/2  tsp. garlic powder
  • 1/4 tsp. turmeric
  • 1 tsp. black pepper
  • 1/4 tsp. salt 
  • ⅓ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 large egg, lightly beaten
  • 2  tsp. olive oil
  • 1 cup spinach


  1. In a small bowl, whisk together the oat flour, oats, ground mustard, garlic powder, turmeric, black pepper and salt.
  2. In a separate bowl whisk together the egg, pumpkin puree, lemon juice. Combine the egg mixture with the oat mixture and mix together. 
  3. Heat a saucepan over low heat add 1 tsp. olive oil and sauté the spinach until lightly wilted. Remove from heat and fold the spinach into the oat mixture.
