BM #93 Week 1 Day 3 - 

When we are talking about breakfast, can we forget the Overnight Oats? I couldn't either. So keeping in view the season in my neck of the woods, I chose to showcase a pumpkin flavored overnight oats recipe.

Feel free to play around with the ingredients as it suits your taste buds. You can omit the yogurt and use Almond milk or Soy milk to make it vegan. I love Greek Yogurt in Overnight oats as I find it tends to make it creamier. Also feel free to omit the chia seeds and add flax seeds if that is your preference.

I have used a mason jar but any air tight container will work. 

Whenever I get pumpkin home, I peel, cube and freeze. It comes in handy at times like this :).

The maximum time I used the night before was to cook the pumpkin and puree it which was about 7-8 minutes. Set aside all the toppings which I had on hand and in the morning assembling it was a breeze, about 2 minutes (Didn't factor in the photo shoot :)).

Ingredients - 

Rolled Oats 1/2 cup (Old fashioned oats is fine)
Pumpkin Puree 1/3 cup
Milk 3/4 cup
Greek Yogurt 2 Tbsp
Chia Seeds 1 tsp
Salt a pinch
Cinnamon Powder 1/4 tsp
Pumpkin spice 1/2 tsp (I used a little less)
Honey / Maple Syrup 1/2 Tbsp (or as needed)
Topping Ideas - Chocolate chips, Roasted shredded coconut, Raisins, Whipped Cream, Roasted almonds, Roasted Pumpkin seeds, Dried Cranberries etc.. 

Method Of Preparation -

In a mason jar or any air tight container, add Rolled Oats, Milk, Greek yogurt, Pumpkin Puree, Salt, Chia Seeds, Cinnamon Powder, Pumpkin Spice Powder and Honey. Mix it, seal it and refrigerate it for at least 4 hours. [I refrigerate overnight.]

The next morning, divide the oatmeal into two portions, add the toppings and enjoy. If one of the portions is unused, it can be sealed and popped back into the refrigerator and can stay there for upto 3-4 days.

The toppings I used are roasted almonds, dark chocolate nibs, roasted coconut shreds, raisins and a dollop of more Greek Yogurt.


Preparation Time 10 minutes
Serves 2
