Apparently you put oatmeal in the fridge overnight with milk or Greek yogurt and it's a delicious meal in the am. Hmmmm.. You've got my interest. Quick oatmeal in the morning that doesn't require a pan. I'm in.
Maybe it's because I'm blonde, but I kept scouring blogs to see if you heat the oats in the am or if you still eat them cold. Seriously. I never saw a definitive answer. I know. I should be smarter than that. So I ate mine cold. It definitely was different. But fast and good.
The base recipe I used came from one of my favorite blogs - PBfingers.
The pumpkin flavor made me miss fall. But it was tasty, but I would've liked it a little sweeter. Now I have 2 cups of leftover pumpkin in the fridge to use! Haha! Look for more pumpkiny blogs this week!
Pumpkin Overnight Oats
- 1/2 c. oatmeal
- 1/2 c. almond milk
- 3 oz. vanilla Greek yogurt (I didn't use but it's recommended)
- 1/2 c. canned pumpkin (I used Libby's)
- Pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon
- In the morning I added 1 scoop of vanilla protein and walnuts
Like I said, the combination are probably endless. I'm thinking a chocolate oat bowl could be in my future. Or something what granola on top? Except I never buy granola...but I'm just brainstorming here.
Give it a try- let me know what you think!
Love and cold oats,
Carissa & Kyle
