PUMPKIN PECAN OVERNIGHT OATS

PUMPKIN PECAN OVERNIGHT OATS

Hi Friends! Welcome back to the blog! Today I’m sharing another sneak peek recipe from my book The 5 Day Juicing Diet! 

With a little prep work, overnight oats are an easy way to enjoy the benefits of oatmeal. You may be surprised to learn that just half a cup of dry rolled oats contains 6 grams of protein. I love pumpkin seeds for this recipe, because they add crunch, texture, and benefits like fiber, iron, and zinc. Zinc boasts antioxidant and anti-in ammatory properties, and helps support hormone health. Enjoy this recipe cold or hot—it’s delicious either way.

Cook Time

Ingredients
  1. 1⁄2 cup rolled oats
  2. 1⁄2 cup unsweetened almond, coconut or rick milk
  3. 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  4. 1⁄2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (or more to taste)
  5. 1⁄4 teaspoon vanilla extract
TOPPING INGREDIENTS
  1. 1 tablespoon pumpkin seeds (or seed of choice)
  2. 1 tablespoon pecans (or nut of choice)
  3. 1/4 cup blueberries (or berry of choice)
Instructions
  1. 1. In a Mason jar, combine the oats, nondairy milk, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla. Whisk together to blend. Store in the refrigerator overnight.
  2. 2. In the morning, give the mixture a stir. The overnight oats should be thick and creamy.
  3. 3. Top with the pumpkin seeds, pecans, and blueberries, and enjoy!
Notes
  1. Ingredient tip: I recommend using rolled oats in this recipe. Quick oats will yield a mushy texture, and steel-cut oats may be too gritty for some people— but Goldilocks would agree that rolled oats are just right!
