We love to sit down together for our meals. Breakfast is one of the hardest ones to sit down together. But it’s so important to sit down together, it’s just as important as making healthy eating decisions and educating your kids on healthy choices. We love Quaker, Zoe’s favorite breakfast is a bowl of oatmeal with cream, brown sugar and nuts. Oatmeal is a great way to a healthy start. For a nutrient-rich start to your morning, make oatmeal with low-fat milk. You will not only get calcium from both, but also fiber and iron from the oatmeal and protein, potassium and vitamins D, A and B12 from milk!
To help other families get the nutritious meals they deserve, Quaker has teamed up with The Kroger Co. Family of Stores to donate $25,000 to Feeding America! You can show your support by tweeting a picture of your family enjoying Quaker and milk to @Quaker with the hashtag #BetterTogether.

- 1 Tablespoon(s) firmly packed brown sugar
- 1 Tablespoon(s) margarine or butter, melted
- 1/8 Teaspoon(s) pumpkin pie spice

Heat oven to 400°F. Line twelve medium muffin cups with paper baking cups or spray bottoms only with cooking spray.
For streusel, combine all ingredients in small bowl; mix well. Set aside.
For muffins, combine flour, oats, sugar, nuts, if desired, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, baking soda and salt in large bowl; mix well. In medium bowl, combine pumpkin, milk, oil and egg; blend well. Add to dry ingredients all at once; stir just until dry ingredients are moistened. (Do not over mix.)
Fill muffin cups almost full. Sprinkle with reserved streusel, patting gently.
Bake 22 to 25 minutes or until golden brown. Cool muffins in pan on wire rack 5 minutes. Remove from pan. Serve warm.
