Why You'll Love This Nutritious Fall Breakfast!
This is my all-time favorite variation of overnight oats. I know you're going to love this recipe because it's like eating healthy pumpkin pie for breakfast.
This creamy pumpkin breakfast option is made with old fashioned rolled oats which are a whole grain and support healthy digestion. This recipe also calls for pumpkin puree which offers many health benefits and adds so much flavor to oatmeal. To keep this recipe refined sugar-free, simply sweeten with pure maple syrup or honey. I like to add some crunch to these overnight oats by mixing in some pepitas or pumpkin seeds.
One of the best things about this easy breakfast recipe is that you don't have to dirty a bunch of kitchen utensils and bowls to make it! Grab a mason jar, fill it up with the ingredients, screw on the lid and give it a good shake! You can even eat these overnight oats right out of the jar the next day to save yourself from washing yet another dish.
Health Benefits of Pumpkin
Pumpkin puree is a game changer in oatmeal because it adds a robust flavor and smooth, rich consistency. Vitamin A, potassium and antioxidants are just a few of the amazing health benefits found in pumpkin.
This spiced pumpkin cream cheese filled bread also uses pumpkin puree and is an amazing baked good to make this autumn.
How To Make Healthy Pumpkin Overnight Oats:
Let's make delicious pumpkin overnight oatmeal to celebrate fall flavors and wholesome ingredients.
First, grab a mason jar or a glass storage container that has a lid. To your jar, add pumpkin puree, rolled oats, chia seeds and your milk of choice.
To keep this recipe dairy-free and vegan, use non-dairy milk. Stir these first four ingredients together.
Next, add pure maple syrup, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin seeds and stir once more. Before you pop your container into the fridge, secure the lid and give the pumpkin overnight oats mixture a good shake for one last mix.
Finally, refrigerate the overnight oats for at least 3 hours if you're in a rush, or let them rest overnight for the best consistency.
Overnight Oatmeal Topping Ideas:
When it's time to eat your healthy pumpkin overnight oats, enjoy them on their own or add some extra toppings. I like to top my pumpkin oatmeal with a dollop of greek yogurt and a drizzle of honey. Some other oatmeal topping ideas include chopped dates or raisins, pure maple syrup or even chopped apples would be delicious! Another yummy topping to add to these overnight oats is my pumpkin spice granola.
