2 Ways

Are you searching for a hassle-free & nourishing breakfast option this fall?  If so, I have got you covered with these fall-themed overnight oats! 
 
I personally love making overnight oats because of how convenient they are for my busy mornings. You can just toss all the ingredients in a jar ahead of time and have it ready-to go for the morning. I usually choose the same base ingredients but change up my topping choices based on my mood, the season, or whatever ingredients I have on hand.  For these fall-themed overnight oats, I chose ingredients that remind me of this cozy and colorful season like hand-picked apples, 100% pumpkin puree, pecans, and cinnamon. Not only are these overnight oats scrumptious, they also come with a nutritional punch.  The mix of ingredients provide a dose of fiber, healthy fats, and complex carbohydrates that can be satiating and fuel you up through the morning.

Base Ingredients: 
  • 1/2 cup old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup milk of choice( I used low-fat dairy milk)
  • 1 tbsp. chia seeds
  • 2 tbsp. yogurt (I used low-fat plain yogurt)
  • 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract
  • Drizzle of preferred sweetener like honey, maple syrup(optional- I used monk fruit sweetener)
  • 4 cinnamon sticks for decoration, optional
Apple Pecan Overnight Oats Toppings: 
  • 1 small apple or 1/2 of a medium apple, chopped
  • 1 tbsp. unsweetened nut or seed butter( ex: peanut butter, sunflower seed butter, almond butter)
  • 1 tbsp. pecans 
  • Dust of ground cinnamon
Pumpkin Granola Overnight Oats Toppings:
  • 1 or 2 tbsps. 100% pumpkin puree
  • 2 heaping tbsps. of granola( I used Lakanto's cinnamon almond granola)
  • Sprinkle of semi-sweet mini chocolate chips
  • Dust of ground cinnamon
Instructions:
  1. Layer all ingredients into a glass jar.  I usually do it in this order: oats, milk, vanilla, yogurt, chia seeds, sweetener(optional), and lastly the preferred topping mix. 
  2. Mix all ingredients in the jar with a spoon and seal the glass jar with a lid. Let the oats refrigerate overnight.
  3. If you want the oats to be a bit more creamier, add some more milk in the morning. You can also add half your toppings at night and half in the morning as well for more texture. Enjoy!
Recipe Notes:
  • For dairy-free overnight oats, you can use dairy free milk/yogurt options like almond, cashew, soy, coconut varieties.
  • If you have a gluten allergy, selecting certified gluten-free oats would be a better option.
  • You can store extra servings in an airtight container for up to 4-5 days.
