Can we sing the praises of pumpkin for a minute? Pumpkins contain antioxidants, such as alpha-carotene and beta-carotene, which may protect your cells against damage caused by free radicals. Beta-carotene is also great for your eyes and may act as a natural sunblock for your skin! Pumpkins contain vitamins C and E, as well as iron and folate, all of which help aid the immune system…. since fall is the start of cold and flu season, perhaps it’s no wonder that pumpkins are often eaten in the fall!
For people looking to lose weight, pumpkin is incredibly low in calories despite being full of vitamins. And it’s high fiber content will keep you feeling full!
Since pumpkin is so healthy, it makes sense to try to fit it into your diet. Pumpkin is also the perfect fall food (although at my house, we eat it year-round!) So… why not give this delicious, easy, super healthy breakfast recipes a try? It also makes a delicious grab-and-go snack.
Combine the flavor of the season (pumpkin, of course!) with a super healthy breakfast option (oatmeal), in a grab-and-go, no-cook style. Love mornings again with this delicious, nutritious, quick, and easy breakfast!
Like most overnight oats recipes, this one is super easy. It’s one reason that we looooove overnight oats! You want to make sure that you are using old-fashioned, rolled oats. We don’t recommend using steel cut oats because they will stay pretty hard and chewy. We also don’t recommend quick-cook oats because they will get pretty mushy. Rolled oats soften to the perfect consistency.
Combine everything into a container. We love mini-mason jars…. we just add everything and then shake, shake, shake it really well until everything is mixed up. Alternatively, you could double or triple this recipe (or more) in a big bowl. Keep it in the fridge in the big bowl and scoop into bowls when serving.
You will want these in the fridge for at least 6 hours or overnight. That’s it! So easy!
These will keep in the fridge for a few days so you can make them ahead of time! Perfect to grab in the morning.
You can eat these pumpkin pie overnight oats hot or cold. We prefer them cold, but enjoy it whichever way you prefer!
Adding almond butter, maple syrup, or toppings will change the calories of this recipe. It will also make it even more delicious. Toppings are the best! Let each member of your family put on their own toppings if you’d like.
