I have been a huge fan of overnight oats after discovering them on numerous healthy living blogs. I have consistently eaten overnight oats for breakfast without getting bored or tired of them for weeks. Last night was my first attempt at pumpkin overnight oats.
I had read several posts about pumpkin oats now that fall is in the air and wanted to give them a try. I have never made anything with canned pumpkin before and was anxious to give it a try. I love the flavor of pumpkin in coffee, pies, and many other baked goods!
In my oats I used:
- 1/3 c. oats
- 1/3 c. unsweetened vanilla almond milk
- 1/3 c. water
- 1/3 c. pumpkin
- 1/2 banana
- handful of raisins
- pumpkin pie spice
I enjoyed these oats with my daily caffeine fix, a large cup of coffee!! This morning I opted for the French Vanilla instead of my usual Pumpkin Spice. I thought the pumpkin Spice coffee might be overkill on the pumpkin flavor for one meal.
I LOVED every bite of these oats and will definitely make them again. They will probably be my staple overnight oats for the remainder of fall. I am looking forward to experimenting with pumpkin in the upcoming weeks. I have several cans sitting in my pantry that I can not wait to use!
QUESTION: What are some of your favorite recipes that contain pumpkin? I’m looking for suggestions.
