Overnight oats are quickly becoming the healthy breakfast go-to for many people. It is not just that oatmeal made in this manner is delicious, but it is convenient as your breakfast is ready by the time you wake up in the morning. If you use mason jars with lids, it is also easy to bring with you to work or school. Here are some ways you can make overnight oats with pumpkin.
Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats
This first recipe is wonderful if you have a bit of a sweet tooth or simply want to try something different with your overnight oats. They taste like pumpkin and fall spices, while also having some chocolate chips in there to make it delicious and feel more like a treat. As with all overnight oats, start with some good old-fashioned oats. Pour them into a mason jar or container, then add in some vanilla unsweetened almond milk or regular milk, a little almond butter, some maple syrup, and your canned or pureed pumpkin. You can then add in your spices and some dark chocolate chips. Mix it together and let sit overnight.
Traditional Overnight Oats
This is the recipe you want to use if you just want regular pumpkin-flavored overnight oats. There are many ways to switch it up, from adding fruit and nuts, to making it more decadent with chocolate or peanut butter. But the basic recipe calls for just a few ingredients. For these overnight oats, you just need old-fashioned oats, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, and almond milk. You can then make it a little sweeter with honey or maple syrup, and can even add in some vanilla extract.
Pumpkin Pecan Overnight Oats
Another fun variation that is still healthy and easy to make is one with pecans. If you enjoy pecan pie and pumpkin pie, put them together into one overnight oats recipe. Go ahead and start with your rolled oats or old-fashioned oats, adding in some almond milk and pumpkin puree. Again, to make it sweeter, you can add in a little maple syrup as well. Don’t forget your spices, whether you just use cinnamon or you try pumpkin pie spice. Now, take a tablespoon of pecans, chop them up, and mix into your jar of oats. You can also add more pecans on top.
These are just three options, but get creative and make your own pumpkin overnight oats recipe.
