|Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats|
For a while now, I've been meaning to try "Overnight Oats". Yes, overnight oats are a no cook, quick prep of your oats. With some left over pumpkin puree, I decided to make some pumpkin pie overnight oats. First, let's go over the base of overnight oats:
1 part liquid
1 part oats
Any fill ins
Place your liquid (I used water), oats and fill in in the jar. Store in the fridge overnight. THAT'S IT!!
So, last night I made the following:
In a empty peanut butter jar (I save ALL my glass jars) I added 1/2c of oats, 1/2c of water, 1/2c of pumpkin puree and pumpkin spice powder. I stirred it all up to combine and put it in the fridge. This morning I had a thick batch of creamy oats. I added about a 1/4c of almond milk, to break up the thickness. This was delicious!!
First of all, the addition of pumpkin puree is amazing. For an extra 40 calories I added flavor and 5 grams of fiber! This is definitely a hearty breakfast. In 200 calories I got a jar full of oats, with an amazing flavor and got in 9 grams of fiber!
Be on the look out for more overnight oats recipes. The flavor combinations are endless!
