PUMPKIN OVERNIGHT OATS RECIPE
*Makes 3 servings
3/4 cup pumpkin (I used canned)
1 & 1/2 tsp cinnamon
1 & 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tablespoons maple syrup
1 cup rolled oats
3 tbsp chia seeds
3 tbsp ground flax seeds
2 1/4 cup unsweetened almond milk
1 apple + 1 tsp cinnamon
3 tbsp nut butter of choice (optional- but makes it nice and creamy)
Gather all of your jars or containers (3)
Dice apple into small chunks and cook in a pan on medium heat with 1 tsp cinnamon until soft (about 10 minutes) - I added a splash of water to deglaze about half way through. Once finished remove from heat.
Add 1/3 cup of rolled oats, 1 tbsp chia, & 1 tbsp ground flax to each jar
In a medium bowl mash the banana till it is a runny consistency, then add the pumpkin, spices, vanilla, and maple syrup. Mix till well combined.
Divide up the pumpkin mixture evenly into the 3 jars and then top each with 3/4 cup almond milk. Stir or shake till well combined.
Top jars with apple's (divide evenly) and 1 tbsp of nut butter of choice
Place in the fridge overnight (or for a few hours).
*I like to heat these up in the morning for more of a warm pumpkin flavor but they can be enjoyed cold as well!
