Pumpkin Overnight Oats
Pumpkin Overnight Oats, packed with protein, flavored with pumpkin and spice, and chocolate chips mixed in are like a delicious pumpkin chocolate-chip cookie in oatmeal form!
Servings 1 -2 servings
- 2 tablespoons slow-roasted creamy almond butter (See Note 1)
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- 1 tablespoon maple syrup, agave or honey (See Note 2)
- 1/4 cup (58g) canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 2/3 cup (155g) unsweetened vanilla almond milk (or milk of choice)
- 1/2 cup (50g) old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- Pinch of salt
- 2 tablespoons dark or milk chocolate chips
PREP THE OATS: In a small bowl, mason jar, or plastic container, place the almond butter, vanilla extract, maple syrup, pumpkin, milk, oats, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, salt, and chocolate chips.
STIR: Stir until all ingredients are well incorporated. Taste the mixture and add any additional maple syrup if desired.
CHILL: Cover and refrigerate overnight or until sufficiently cooled and thickened. (Sometimes I'll even make them in the morning, get ready, and then go eat them -- they are great even after 30 minutes in the fridge)
ENJOY: Enjoy these softened oats, cold and straight out the fridge, garnished with a few extra chocolate chips if desired. If desired, oats can be warmed through in the morning.
As written, these overnight oats are quite creamy. If you'd rather have them thicker, add a few tablespoons of additional oats and/or 1-2 tablespoons chia seeds.
Note 1: Use an almond butter that you enjoy eating straight out of the jar. We like using an almond butter made with slow-roasted almonds and sea salt.
Note 2: Scale the sweetener up or down to personal preference -- you may not even want any! We prefer 1 tablespoon maple syrup; use 2 tablespoons for more sweetness. Alternatively, use 1/4 teaspoon liquid stevia drops for a zero-calorie sweetener.
Store overnight oats in the fridge for up to 3 days.
