Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oatmeal – 21 Day Fix Approved

A quick and easy, no cooking required, make-ahead breakfast with my favorite flavors.  A balanced meal with healthy carbs, Protein from Greek Yogurt, Vegetable from Pumpkin and a healthy fat from a topping of your choice.
Portion Fix Containers: 1 yellow, 1 green, 1 red, 1 tsp
Yields: 1 serving (double or triple this for meal prep for the week)
Ingredients
  • 1/3 cup (uncooked) old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any milk works)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
  • 1/2 tablespoon Chia seeds (optional, but works well to thicken the oatmeal)
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or a mix of cinnamon, nutmeg and ginger
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • desired sweetener- I used 2 packets Stevia. 2-3 teaspoons honey or maple syrup would work well too.
  • optional toppings- shredded  unsweetened coconut, sunflower seeds, nut butter
Directions:
          1. Combine all ingredients, except toppings, in a small bowl or jar with a lid. I love using an almost empty jar of almond butter and the smaller mason jars.Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 4 hours.
          1. Enjoy cold or gently warmed in the microwave. Sprinkle with desired toppings and additional milk, as desired. I like to take my oatmeal out of the fridge about 10-20 minutes before I’m ready to eat. It’s chilled, but not super cold.
        1. It works great to make several servings at once, to enjoy throughout the week. Prepared oatmeal cups will keep well for about 5 days in the fridge.
