It’s only September and I’m already on board the pumpkin everything bandwagon! Just this past week alone I’m guilty of consuming 2 pumpkin lattes, pumpkin pancakes and now these insanely delicious and easy Pumpkin Maple Overnight Oats! Now usually I wait until October 1st before I begin all things pumpkin but for some reason this year I’m all,
BRING ON THE FALL FOODS!!!
So confession time, before these Pumpkin Maple Overnight Oats I had tried overnight oats for the FIRST time not too long ago. So yes, I’m way way late on the trend and I am seriously bummed that I didn’t think to try this overnight oats thing sooner since I’m a huge fan of chia seed pudding. Especially this Blackberry Coconut Chia Pudding which also has a very similar cooking equation. It goes like this:
small prep time+overnight refrigerator time = instant morning gratification
If that cooking equation doesn’t already get you excited here’s my pitch to you why you need this Pumpkin Maple Overnight Oats recipe in your life! 🙂
* Prep time for oats is less than 5 minutes, whoot whoo! Just stir ingredients together before you go to bed and voila! Instant ready made oats waiting for you in the A.M!
*The maple pumpkin seed and walnut topping is so so delish! There is something about toasting nuts that takes them to a whole other level of goodness. And when you bind them together with maple syrup and cinnamon you might have a new addiction. Sorry, not sorry.
*These pumpkin overnight oats are super healthy and filling with the use of pumpkin puree, rolled oats, chia seeds and almond milk! Yes please!
Easy milk swap! If you’d rather not use almond milk you can equally sub regular milk or coconut milk if you prefer.
