Maple Pumpkin Overnight Oats
Maple and pumpkin go so well together, did you know? Just ask my Maple Pumpkin Pie, it’s amazing.
I am Canadian after all, so you know I like to ‘maple’ up foods, as evidenced by my Maple Apple Crisp, which is an incredible easy dessert for fall.
Yet we can’t leave breakfast and brunch out of the seasonal recipes, which is why I love to make this Pecan Pumpkin Pie French Toast Casserole on weekends. Yet what about the everyday? That’s where this recipe comes in.
More and more I’m looking for different breakfast recipe ideas, not only to break the blahs on a meal that always seems to be the same – yet also something healthier than other options.
Not that cereal is a bad thing at all, it’s one of my favourites – yet some days you just crave something different.
This Maple Pumpkin Overnight Oats recipe is super easy to make and comes with a great bonus – you can make it the night before!
This really lessens the strain on deciding what to make for breakfast, since this is the problem with always turning to the same old options.
Plus, it’s grab and go and ready when you are, which really fits our busy lifestyle well.
Since it’s fall and I really love to ‘pumpkin all the things’ right now, as evidenced with many pumpkin recipes on this space, this Maple Pumpkin Overnight Oats recipe is a perfect addition! The combination of ingredients in this recipe really hits the spot – so very flavourful and a nice way to start the day.
Even for my girls who love the crunchiness of a cereal with a yogurt on the side – this still fits their preferences well, but just kicks it up a notch.
