Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

My pantry style Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats are great and do not contain expensive ingredients.
My new favorite breakfast-lunch is overnight oats.

Not familiar with overnight oats? Basically, you mix equal parts rolled oats, milk, and/or yogurt with spices, fruit, plus a sweetener in a jar and let it sit in the refrigerator overnight.

I kept seeing recipes for overnight oats with (to me) fairly exotic or expensive ingredients like chia seeds that I don't keep in my pantry.

However, I do like rolled oats so I decided to try making overnight oats with my regular pantry ingredients. That's right, pantry style overnight oats with rolled oats, milk, fruit, and a tablespoon of sweetener.

I LOVE them. 
In fact, I've been taking a jar of overnight rolled oats to work with me for a healthy, light lunch. This month, I have almost eaten an entire container of rolled oats by myself! That's some serious oat love.
So far my favorite is pumpkin pie overnight oats.
Layered and ready to stir before putting into the refrigerator.
Five Ingredients
1/4 cup 100% pumpkin puree
1/2 cup rolled oats
1/2 cup milk
1 Tbsp packed brown sugar
1/4 tsp. pumpkin pie spice

  • Put your ingredients into a jar or container.
  • Mix thoroughly and put a lid on your container
  • Let sit in your refrigerator for 8 hours.
  • Your pumpkin pie overnight oats are ready to eat! 

Pumpkin pie spice and pumpkin puree! Yum!
