Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Last week my friend sent me a message about overnight oats.  She was in overnight oats heaven.  As the weather begins to cool, I find myself wanting to eat more warming foods and shy away a bit from my normal smoothie bowls (which I still usually have once a day because, DANG, they are good).  Overnight oats are so simple and take very little prep time.  In the morning, all you have to do is warm them a bit and you’ve got yourself a delicious, warming, fulfilling and healthy breakfast.  I seriously could not stop thinking about them while I was running this morning.  Here’s how I did it:

Ingredients:

1/2 cup steal cut oats

6 oz container of vanilla coconut milk yogurt (any non-dairy yogurt will do)

a splash of almond milk

a dash of pumpkin spice

a smidgen of chia seeds

a splash of vanilla

banana

dates

walnuts

black strap molasses

Instructions:

Mix the oats, yogurt, almond milk, spice, chia, and vanilla in a bowl

Cover and place in the fridge overnight

In the Morning, warm in a pan on the stove

Top with banana, dates, walnuts, and blackstrap molasses

I did not have any pumpkin cooked up but you could so easily replace the yogurt with pumpkin puree or apple sauce!
