Just as delicious and WAY better for you, these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats are loaded with protein and taste just like the real deal.
Every October I find myself buying cases (yes, plural) of pumpkin puree. I mean, it’s right there in the store in case form, so I may as well. right? Ok, don’t answer that.
Anyway, canned pumpkin lasts forever. And while I love a good roasted pumpkin, I will usually just use canned if a recipe calls for pumpkin that is puréed.
So cases of the canned stuff it is.
When I got home the other afternoon with my cases, my husband gave me the look. You guys know the look I’m talking about; the one where a husband looks at their wife like they are on a completely different planet. For me and my husband, this always happens when my food hoarding tendencies kick in.
I knew I better get crackin on the pumpkin (since I didn’t really have anything planned at the time) and make something. After all, food is love; and lucky for me, my husband is usually pretty easy to please.
Since my husband loves LOVES overnight oats, I knew Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats would be a winner.
OMG YOU GUYS! These were some of my very favorite overnight oats I have ever tried. In fact, if you ask me, they taste about a million times better than real pumpkin pie (probably given that there is some texture in there).
The best part?
With every single bite my child, my picky child, made the noise “mmmmmm mmmm mm!”
Music to my ears.
