These pumpkin spice overnight oats are a classic with an autumn spin!
Once September rolls around, it’s pumpkin spice everything and I’m not mad about it.
The warm and comforting fall spices and the creamy pumpkin puree are a perfect pairing for oats!
Unlike most pumpkin spice recipes, these oats actually contain real pumpkin.
If you do not own pumpkin spice mix, you can add ground cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, and cloves.
Oats are loaded with good-for-you nutrients like fiber, protein, magnesium, potassium, and omega 3 fatty acids, among other things.
Allowing the oats to soak overnight not only softens them but is also better on digestion.
During soaking, the starches break down which reduces the natural phytic acid.
This helps our body utilize the nutrients much more efficiently.
I am using old fashioned rolled oats but you can also use steel-cut or quick oats.
The oats are mixed with real pumpkin puree and milk.
To keep it dairy-free and vegan, I am using almond milk but you can use any kind of milk you like!
