Pumpkin Spiced Overnight Oats
It’s fall, and that means we’re all craving comfort food. There’s not much more comforting than a big old bowl of oats, but if you add to that the warming spices of cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, ginger, and some maple syrup, it’s like a sweater for your insides.
This recipe is super easy to make. You can prep a bunch of them on the weekend and then just leave them in the fridge. Grab one on your way out the door for a perfect grab-and-go breakfast to eat at your desk when you get to work.
What I love about this Pumpkin Spiced Overnight Oats recipe:
no cooking required!
- very little prep or cleanup
- make a week’s worth on the weekend and then eat them throughout the week
- come in their own little container so you can literally grab one from the fridge on your way out the door or to eat at your desk
- contain heart-healthy oats, a source of fibre that actually helps to lower cholesterol
- contain chia, an amazing seed that is high in both fibre and protein, to keep you full and going till lunch!
- contain pumpkin and pumpkin seeds, a fabulous source of healthy fats, especially Omega-3 and Omega-6 fatty acids
- those toasy, roasty fall flavours you love: cinnamon, maple, vanilla
