Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

It’s all about pumpkin this time of year so bring it on because I love all things pumpkin! I can’t get enough. Overnight oats are a delicious way to add pumpkin to breakfast. It’s super easy to make and you’ll have a ready to eat, hearty breakfast waiting for you when you wake up. Mix all of the ingredients in one bowl, refrigerate overnight, there’s no cooking required. You can find an endless variety of recipes for overnight oats but I love the nutritional bonus of beta-carotene from the pumpkin in this recipe. Plus, who doesn’t want to eat pumpkin pie for breakfast?
