Hey there. It’s been a crazy week over here, and yesterday was particularly hectic. I considered taking the week off and completely skipping today’s blog post, but I had already put this Pumpkin Overnight Oats recipe together for you so I’ll go ahead and share it.
I haven’t always liked overnight oats because I feel like they typically turn out pretty bland and boring. And I’m too much of an oatmeal fan to settle for flavorless oats!
I think what makes the difference for me is yogurt. It adds so much more flavor than the typical milk and chia seeds situation. I completely skipped the chia seeds in this recipe, but feel free to throw some in! (And maybe add another couple tablespoons of milk for them to absorb.)
Another quick note: I used local honey as the sweetener in this recipe. We picked up a jar at the farmers’ market a few weeks ago, and we’ve been adding it to all kinds of things. If you really wanted to go full-on-fall with this recipe, replace that honey with maple syrup!
If you try this Pumpkin Overnight Oats recipe at home, I’d love to hear what you think! Share pictures with me on social media by tagging @thesavvyplate on Instagram or Twitter or by mentioning my page The Savvy Plate on Facebook!
