Enjoy a delightful and nutritious breakfast with pumpkin spice overnight oats. Infused with the autumnal flavors of pumpkin and spice, this dish is perfect for a quick, no-fuss breakfast on chilly mornings. Here’s how you can make it:
- Milk (oat milk or whole milk is recommended for a creamy texture)
- 1 to 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree (adjust based on preference)
- A pinch of pumpkin spice
- Maple syrup for sweetness
- Optional toppings: nuts (like pecans or walnuts) and/or dried fruits (like cranberries or raisins)
- Mix Base Ingredients: In a mason jar, combine a serving of oats with twice the amount of milk.
- Flavor with Pumpkin: Stir in 1 to 2 tablespoons of pumpkin puree. Adjust the amount based on how pumpkin-y you want your oats.
- Add Spices and Sweetness: Sprinkle in a dash of pumpkin spice. Drizzle in maple syrup to your preferred level of sweetness.
- Blend & Refrigerate: Mix all the ingredients well until combined. Ensure the oats are fully submerged in the liquid. Seal the jar with its lid and place it in the refrigerator. Let it sit overnight, allowing the oats to absorb the flavors and soften.
- Customize & Serve: In the morning, give the oats a good stir. You can add more milk if they are too thick for your liking. Top your oats with your choice of nuts, dried fruits, or even a dollop of yogurt for added richness.
- Store: If you’re a planner, make a bigger batch. These oats can be stored in the refrigerator and are good for up to 5 days. Ensure they are kept in a sealed container to retain freshness.
Enjoy this heartwarming dish as a perfect start to your fall mornings! Pair it with a hot cup of coffee or tea for a complete breakfast experience.
