Pumpkin Peanut Butter Chocolate Overnight Oats

I don’t know what has gotten into me lately, but I have been so into using pumpkin.

I went through this phase over the fall where I literally used pumpkin puree everyday.   I even bought my own sugar pumpkins and made my own puree! (FYI that’s the trick to making the perfect pumpkin pie… making your own puree).

Well, needless to say, I pretty much overdid pumpkin and stopped using it.

Until now.

I think maybe because it feels like winter where I live, I am inspired by wintery ingredients.

Hence this recipe.

Essentially, it’s overnight oats with pumpkin instead of granola

You are going to need

1. 1/2 cup pumpkin

2. 1/2 cup oats

3. 1/2 cup almond milk or any other liquid

4. cinnamon, nutmeg, and stevia to taste (or any other sweetener)

5. 1 tbsp chia seeds

6. 1 tbsp natural crunchy peanut butter, dried cherries, cacao nibs, and pecans to top

I feel like i’ve seen a million overnight oat recipes in mason jars… I decided to join in the fun 🙂

First, combine the oats and pumpkin.

Stir everything together, and put in the fridge to thicken overnight, or at least for a few hours.

Okay quick note on mason jars.  They are very photogenic and all, but stirring everything is a HUGEEEEEE pain!  Seriously, it was a workout stirring in the jar.  It’s worth it though 🙂

Back on topic, once it’s to the right thickness, stir in your peanut butter, cherries, and chocolate.

Top with your pecans

Enjoy!

This definitely satisfies my pumpkin craving 🙂

Question: What’s your favorite seasonal ingredient?… whether it be summer, fall, or winter
