Day 20: pumpkin pie overnight oats

pumpkin pie overnight oats - Day 20 of my 30 day challenge - Scaling Back

 

I have really been enjoying experimenting with overnight oats recipes.  They are so simple, you can and should prepare them the night before and after a quick zap in the microwave you have a delicious, healthy breakfast.  Pumpkin pie is one of my very favorite flavors in the world.  I get sad every Thanksgiving because I am the only one that likes it so I usually go without.  This warm bowl of oats has all those delicious flavors and now I get to enjoy them everyday in my own little bowl.  I used a combination of rolled oats, steel cut oats and some millet.  I really like my oats to have a little chew to them.  Feel free to use all rolled oats if you’d prefer, but the millet adds a really nice texture and nutty flavor.  You can top them with whatever you like, I chose some homemade hazelnut butter and chopped hazelnuts.  Try experimenting, some grated apples and walnuts would be nice, or maybe some chopped pecans brown sugar.  What’s your favorite way to enjoy your morning oatmeal?

      I am excited that you posted another overnight oats recipe! I tried your chocolate hazelnut one last night and loved it! I love the overnight oats idea. I have soaked oatmeal overnight, but I’ve always cooked it on the stove afterwards. I love that I can make this the night before and it is ready to go in the morning! Saves me a lot of time in the morning since I don’t like getting up early! Thank you very much! Lots of beautiful photos and recipes here; I’m enjoying your blog.

        Hi Divya,

        I’m so glad that you enjoyed the chocolate hazelnut oats! I have found that I really prefer just to warm them briefly in the microwave, I really like the texture so much better. I’m sure that there will be more overnight oats post in the near future!
