(The price below is for a 4 pack of these steel cut oats!)
I fell in love with the ease of overnight refrigerator oats. I love the fact you can have a delicious, nutritious breakfast just by opening the refrigerator in the morning. I decided to try something different from the bananas foster one I had been making, so I threw together a pumpkin pie overnight oats.
My first version wasn't very good because it's very easy to over do nutmeg. After a few trial and error batches, I've come up with what works great for our family. It's very simple to do, so I hope you try it out and love it as much as we do!
We prefer to use fresh pumpkin puree, but I know that's not always available for everyone. The recipe is for one serving/jar of overnight oats but if you buy a large (29oz, I believe) can of pumpkin puree, it should make roughly 8 batches total. If you want this sweet like a pie and don't want to add whipped cream, I'd recommend adding a bit more syrup to sweeten it since there won't been any whipped cream to sweeten it.
