Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats - FBD

Wednesday, October 18, 2017

Last night I went out for a walk a little before 7. It was getting dark quickly but right in that time before it became really dark, I finally felt Fall. You know that feeling when it’s cool but still slightly warm, you see all the pumpkins and sunflowers and Fall d├ęcor, you smell the crisp leaves and maybe, just maybe the smell of baking pies. I finally feel like it’s Fall.

I’ve been trying to get in the Fall spirit. I decorated my house, though I still need to take pictures to show y’all. I’ve been slowly but surely drawing my Fall popsicle sticks and crossing them off.

Today’s fun Fall popsicle stick drawing is “Make a pumpkin recipe”. If you tune in regularly, you saw that I tried some overnight oats and they didn’t turn out well. So, those overnight oats were actually Pumpkin Spice overnight oats. But when I went home Monday night, I split up my jars and added more oats to all of them and they turned out really great! I am actually enjoying a mason jar of them now!

I found the recipe on Pinterest from this blog but like I said, I had to doctor up the oats. If you like soupier oatmeal, you can follow the recipe as is. But if you’re like me and enjoy some thicker oatmeal, I would only add half the amount of milk it calls for, or as a co-worker told me, just add enough milk to cover the oats.

Another alteration I made to this recipe was with the pumpkin spice. I’m not sure if I was just having a blonde moment, but I couldn’t find pumpkin spice (is there such a thing?), so I replaced pumpkin spice with nutmeg. I enjoyed the flavor of the pumpkin, cinnamon and nutmeg together.


¼ cup pumpkin puree
½ cup old-fashion or rolled oats
1 cup milk (Almondmilk or regular)
½ teaspoon pumpkin spice
½ teaspoon cinnamon
2 teaspoons maple syrup
¼ cup chopped candied pecans (optional)

1. Combine all ingredients together and mix well. Cover and place in refrigerator overnight.
2. In the morning, warm oats in a pot over medium heat or place in a microwavable container and warm in the microwave.
