Cottage cheese oats

Okay, new oatmeal recipe!
Normally I do protein powder in my oats, but I accidentally bought a large container of cottage cheese at the grocery store last week, so I am looking for ways to use it up without eating it plain (I have a texture issue with it). I have seen other people add it to oats, so I figured "Why not?".

The mix:
40 grams of oats (1/2 cup)
1 cup water
pumpkin pie spice
pinch salt
1/4 cup cottage cheese
1/2 cup pumpkin
1 tbsp spelt berries
dollop of chai marmalade

I cooked the oats in the water, then when they were just about done, I added the cottage cheese. I didn't expect it to melt in, but it did and made the oats smooth and creamy. Then stirred in the pumpkin and topped with spelt berries and marmalade.

And, served with cafe au lait, as always.

Do you actually taste the cottage cheese? I tried CC once, and didn't like the strong cheese flavor. LOL.

I'm not really a fan of cottage cheese (texture thing) but I might like it with the pumpkin. It sounds good.

The cottage cheese really has no flavor, it's fairly bland. Might depend on the brand, though.
