Oatmeal is a convenient, nutritious breakfast. Oats are higher in protein than many breakfast cereals (about 5 grams of protein per half cup of oats), so they help you to maintain your energy for a little while longer.
I love steel cut oats, but some mornings I don’t have enough time to make them. That’s when overnight come in to save the day.
These pumpkin overnight oats are so easy and delicious. You simply stir together the ingredients in the evening and divide them into jars. Refrigerate them overnight, and you have breakfast ready to go in the morning.
Pumpkin Overnight Oats Tips
I like to use a combination of pumpkin puree and coconut milk to soak the oats overnight. This gives the oatmeal a rich, creamy texture. You can substitute any other type of milk for the coconut milk if you’d prefer.
A little mashed banana helps to sweeten these overnight oats. You may want to adjust the amount of pure maple syrup depending on the ripeness of the banana. Taste the mixture before refrigerating, and adjust as needed.
This recipe can be doubled if you want to make several days’ worth of pumpkin overnight oats. Divide the oatmeal into one cup jars for serving.
