Soak in all the flavor of a delightfully healthy fall breakfast with my Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats.
I’m officially on the pumpkin bandwagon. I had my first PSL of the season the other day and I’ve been all about this Healthy & Creamy Pumpkin Pasta. But what about for breakfast? You know I couldn’t leave the most important meal of the day alone without a fresh new, healthy pumpkin option!
How about these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats? They taste surprisingly sinful for being so extra healthy. Just the way I like my breakfasts!
Like all overnight oat recipes, my Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats soaks overnight allowing the oatmeal to soften and become perfect to eat the next day. It’s really not “cooked” at all. It’s perfect for folks who don’t have any time to prepare breakfast in the morning. You can probably tell how much I like them with this yummy collection of overnight oats variations I’ve posted on Running in a Skirt… Chunky Monkey Overnight Oats, Peanut Butter and Jelly, Blueberry Pie Overnight Oats, Strawberry Shortcake Overnight Oats & Apple Pie Overnight Oats.
For this variation, I kept the oats pumpkin-y simple and layered them with yummy vanilla Greek yogurt to add a protein punch and loads of flavor. Just think of it like the whipped cream!
You can leave the Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats as is, or top with a sprinkle of granola and whatever nuts you have around. I like walnuts or pecans! The crunch adds some nice texture.
It’s actually quite amazing how this simple combination of flavors REALLY gives you that pumpkin pie taste for breakfast without all the added sugar of course.
And you can feel really good about eating pumpkin! It’s actually impressively good for you. It’s packed with vitamin A, which helps your eyes. It is also full of fiber, which helps keep you full and it even has cancer fighting antioxidants.
Booooo-yaaahhhhh!!! Tell all that to the next person who mocks all the pumpkin lovers.
So eat up and know this really is a wonderfully delicious breakfast that is good for you too. Enjoy!
