You can never really have too many overnight oats recipes, right? This recipe was one of the first recipes I ever posted on my blog, but I decided to give it a refresh with some new photos!
Now that the weather is finally cooling down, I'm really ready for all things pumpkin-apple-chai-etc. But, no matter the time of year, I can always go for a bowl (or a jar!) of oats. If you're a fan of pumpkin, you'll love these pumpkin overnight oats. They're a great way to start the day, and only take about five minutes to make.
For this recipe, I used canned pumpkin, cinnamon and maple syrup to flavor the oats, but you could always use pumpkin pie spice instead of cinnamon if you prefer--both ways are delicious.
OVERNIGHT OATS INGREDIENTS
- Rolled oats
- Maple syrup
- Milk of choice
- Chocolate chips
HOW TO MAKE PUMPKIN OVERNIGHT OATS
Stir wet ingredients together: Whisk the pumpkin, syrup and milk together in a bowl until everything is well combined and there aren't any lumps.
Add the dry ingredients: In that same bowl, add the oats, cinnamon and chocolate chips and stir to combine. The chocolate chips are optional, but they add a little extra sweetness to this recipe (plus, chocolate is pretty much always a good idea, right?).
Store in the refrigerator: This step is key! The whole point of overnight oats is to prepare them the night before so that breakfast is ready for you in the morning. Place the bowl in the refrigerator as-is, or transfer the oat mixture to jars and store them that way.
