Peanut Butter Oatmeal
Cooking spray
1 apple, diced
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, divided
2 cups old fashioned oats
3 3/4 cups water
1 banana, mashed
2 tablespoons creamy peanut butter
Honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup (optional)
In a medium saucepan sprayed with cooking spray, sauté the diced apple and 1/4 tsp of pumpkin pie spice over medium-heat until lightly browned and tender, about 4 minutes.  Remove half the apple mixture and set aside.  Add the oats to the remaining apple mixture in the sauce pan and stir over medium heat for 2 minutes, until the oats begin to toast.  Add the water, remaining 1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, banana, and peanut butter.  Stir and bring mixture to a boil and then turn heat to medium-low and simmer for 5 minutes.  Top with the reserved sautéd apple before serving.  Drizzle with honey, brown sugar, or maple syrup, if desired.

Pumpkin Seed & Cranberry Popcorn Balls
Makes: 16 balls
2 bags low fat microwavable popcorn (12 cups popped)
½ cup toasted pumpkin seeds
½ cup dried cranberries, chopped
2 tablespoons buttery spread (such as Smart Balance)
1 (10 ounce) bag mini marshmallows
Pop the popcorn according to package instructions. In a large bowl combine popcorn, pumpkin seeds and cranberries; set aside.
Melt spread in a large skillet over medium heat. Add marshmallows and stir until melted (3 to 4 minutes). Pour marshmallow mixture over popcorn and toss well to coat. Using a spoon, scoop out a handful of mixture and form into 16 evenly sized balls. Transfer to a sheet pan lined with parchment paper to cool and set. Once cool, store in an air-tight container for up to 3 days. Prep Tip: Mixture is sticky. Coat hands with nonstick cooking spray to make forming balls easier.
