I have been wanting to whip up some overnight oats for awhile. I used to eat oatmeal almost weekly I loved it so much, but I think I wore myself out on it. These overnight oats are just the thing to get me back on the oat wagon (plus, they taste like pumpkin pie!!)
This recipe makes a pretty large amount, so I used a quart size mason jar as my container. This would make a fantastic breakfast, light lunch or snack that you can have for several days. If you don't want to commit to a jar full or overnight oats, cut the recipe in half. Oh, and it is yummy. Like said pie ^. No one's judging if you feel like adding whipped cream on top.
P.S. Happy day after Halloween! I hope you all had a fun, safe night! We stayed in for the first time in several years, and it was great. Tonight we are going to a costume party, which should be fun! I have a last-second costume in the works, we'll see how it works out ;)
Pumpkin-Pecan Overnight Oats
2 cups quick oats
2 cups milk of choice (obvs I used my go-to almond milk)
Heaping 1/2 cup pumpkin (not pie filling)
1 teaspoon vanilla
Dash of each: nutmeg, cloves, ginger
2 teaspoons cinnamon (I love cinnamon, start with one if you aren't a cinnamon junkie like me)
1/2 cup pecans
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup (this is really just to your taste)
1 tablespoon flaxseed meal
Add all ingredients to container with a tight fitting lid, such as a mason jar. Mix well. Stick in the fridge overnight, or about 12 hours. Eat hot or cold.
