Overnight Maple Pumpkin Pie Oats

Posted on by Lisa Codina 916 Views

What better way to gain the strength and energy to carry you through a hectic morning schedule than with a steaming bowl of freshly (UN)cooked oatmeal?

If you follow this Blog you’ll know that there are a ton of recipes on here that call for oats as the main ingredient; No-Bake Peanut Butter and Chocolate Oat Balls, Carrot Cake Oatmeal, Baked Quinoa and Oatmeal Apple Pie, Gluten-Free Pumpkin Coconut Granola…just to name a few!

This particular recipe tops the charts when it comes to EASY and QUICK preparation! I still can’t believe it took me THIS long to realize I can prepare oats without actually cooking them. Now that I’ve gone “overnight” I’m never going back

;-)

The recipe itself is simple and so easy to modify. It’s basically a blank canvas to which you can add your favourite ingredients (Don’t want pumpkin puree? Why not add some mashed bananas and almond butter, for example?).

If you’re a fan of oatmeal, especially for the kids, you HAVE to try this recipe. It’s fool-proof, delicious and so convenient (especially on those mornings when you’re running late!).

Serve warmed in a big bowl for a quick, hearty breakfast or store in a thermos and send the kids off to school (or yourself to work) with a warm morning snack, packed with calcium, protein, Omega 3-fatty acids, and fiber to get you through the day!

Ingredients
(Yields about 2 cups)
1/2 cup full fat Greek yogurt
1 1/2 cups unsweetened coconut milk (milk of choice, formula or breast milk)
1 cup rolled oats
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
2-3 tbs. raw maple syrup (quantity as desired)
1/4 tsp pumpkin pie spice
1 tsp. ground flax (optional)
pinch of salt (optional)

Add all the ingredients to a large bowl or mason jar (or any other container that can be grabbed on the go).

Stir with a large spoon until all the ingredients are well combined. Store in the fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours until the oats have completely softened and the oatmeal has thickened.

*Note: This yields a thicker oatmeal but you can always add more milk in the morning to suit your preference.

Serve right from the fridge or warmed in a bowl or cup…

And just think about the extra time you’ll have in the morning to enjoy your breakfast (hopefully in peace and quiet)!
