Make these fall-inspired Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats for a cozy breakfast. This recipe saves you time in the morning so you can fuel for the day without rushing out the door!
Overnight oats are my jam so I couldn’t pass up an opportunity to make a seasonal version for the Fall! Last year I discovered that Oikos, the Greek yogurt company, released a Pumpkin Spice flavour and I had to try it. I started experimenting with this yogurt to find the perfect combination but unfortunately, they stopping stocking them on shelves due to the quick shift in seasons. It was clear that I needed to find a way to make a similar breakfast with ingredients that were accessible all year round.
Interestingly, pumpkin puree tends to be available no matter the season. Plus, it’s actually super nutrient dense! I have the nutrition facts listed below but you may be surprised to learn it’s an excellent source of iron. So yes, it’s possible to make healthy recipes with pumpkin puree! This Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats recipe is sure to be a new favourite twist on breakfast that you’ll be craving season after season.
