Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

 Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal 2

Pumpkin everything season has arrived.  People are gaga over pumpkin everything from lattes to muffins, and I totally get it because I love it too, and Autumn is my favorite season.  I have started making the pumpkin delicacies myself too. I had made a cake last weekend and had leftover pumpkin, so I decided I needed to do something with it...and it just happened to be perfect timing to include it in my overnight oats since I was putting those together.  So, I made pumpkin spice overnight oatmeal.  I figured the pumpkin would give me some extra goodness and nutrients as well as being delicious so it was a win win all around.  They were delicious!  Like pumpkin pie met my bowl of overnight oatmeal.  I think I will be making these any time I have leftover pumpkin this season.  If you have leftover pumpkin...now you know what to do with it!

    Hello 'About Me', I was just wondering if you ate this cold or heated it up. Sounds interesting & I have many pumpkins springing from my 'compost' pile. I eat steel cut or rolled oats at least five days a week. Mine are delicious, but adding pumpkin sounds pretty nice. I would have to eat it hot though. I'm also a vegan.

      Yes, you may heat it up if you like, I am just too lazy most mornings :).

    I am hoping that the pumpkins that I saved from our last seasons harvest are still OK. They seem to be, and so I might quickly make the most of them and make some of this gorgeous overnight porridge. Cheers for sharing the recipe with us Amy :)
