Your new favorite breakfast! Layered grab-and-go breakfast of oatmeal, pumpkin, pecans, raisins and vanilla. Gluten-free and vegetarian with vegan option.
Here we go!
Fall. Pumpkin. Butternut squash in everything. I actually bought a sweater yesterday afternoon while shopping- a sweater! It’s still 90 degrees mind you, but now that I’ve turned the page on September 21st, I’m embracing fall with open arms-that just happen to be covered in a gorgeous 30% off sweater.
I held out as long as I could. It’s not that I don’t like fall; I do. But, I’m much more partial to summer. However, nothing eases me into autumn better than welcoming back a seasonal favorite, pumpkin.
Oh, how I’ve missed you.
This pumpkin overnight oatmeal is my favorite way to wake up, especially now that mornings are a little darker and a tad cooler. While I still consider myself a morning person, I will trade sleep for breakfast almost every.single.time. Five more minutes in bed and settle for breakfast at the work cafeteria? Done and done.
Thankfully, I was introduced to the concept of overnight oats so I can have the best of both worlds. Breakfast in the morning? Yup, made it the night before. Extra five minutes in bed? Make it ten, and I’ll do my makeup in the car! (< — true story almost every day)
Overnight oats are so simply perfect, you don’t really even need a recipe. Layer rolled oats, pumpkin puree, vanilla almond milk, spices and flax seed. Shake in a mason jar and place in the fridge overnight. Enjoy as is or top with everything, like I do. Texture overload with pecans, vanilla yogurt, and raisins. Sometimes I drizzle on almond butter, too. Trust me when I say that everything works here.
Overnight oatmeal: Layer, Cover, Shake, Store, Eat.
