By far my favourite discovery this fall was a recipe for overnight oats with an appreciated twist: Pumpkin Spice flavour (yes, if this makes me “Basic,” so be it!). I still haven’t hacked the knack of meal prep, but this one is so easy and edible even I am capable and motivated to make a set of 2-3 cups/jars on a Sunday or Wednesday evening (needs about 5 hours to soak). Without further delay then:
Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats
1/3 cup of Steel cut oats
1/3 cup of pumpkin puree (buy it in the baking aisle with the other pie fillings)
1/3 cup of milk or milk substitute
1 tsp of cinnamon (or to taste)
1/4 tsp of nutmeg
Option: Add your maple syrup now to taste … maybe a tablespoon? OR Add it after microwaving for a minute the morning you use it for breakfast.
