And this recipe is right on time as I am looking for more recipes to put myself into an autumn mood.
I feel like cuddling on the couch with a warm cup of coffee plus this delicious sweet raw oats breakfast. Maybe while reading a book in front of our fireplace.
WELL, THAT SOUNDS LIKE A NICE DREAM.
I also live with a 3.5 and a 2 year old, so this won’t actually happen. Actually, probably never for 10 more years. But, it is always nice to dream.
I have to say though that in my tornado-like intense morning routine with my two high energy children, this breakfast brings me huge comfort and satisfaction. I get my pumpkin fix and really feel like I’m treating myself.
Ingredients to make these orange and pumpkin overnight oats?
These raw oats are so easy to make and definitely don’t miss on flavor. The pieces of orange are bursting with sweet juice and is so delicious when mixed in with the spiced and creamy oats. This breakfast is almost like eating a slice of rich and creamy pumpkin pie, but in a much healthier way.
You will need old fashioned oats for this recipe. Do not use quick cooking oats as it gets very mushy after soaking in the liquid.
For the creamy base, the oats are mixed with canned pumpkin purée, non dairy milk (I love using almond milk), maple syrup, pumpkin seeds, pumpkin pie spices mix and a hint of turmeric.
If you don’t have pumpkin pie spices mix, then you can swap for cinnamon with a dash of nutmeg. Also, check out this easy homemade pumpkin pie spice mix recipe if you want to make your own.
Also, don’t hesitate to add nut or seed butter when making this overnight oats. It adds so much creaminess! Pumpkin seed butter would go beautifully in this raw oat breakfast.
How to make this pumpkin overnight oatmeal
Simply combine all the ingredients in a air-tight container and let sit in the fridge overnight.
It is best when prepared the day before you want to enjoy it, but I have made it the morning of and enjoyed one hour or so later. It was still really good, especially since I enjoy chewy raw oats.
If you love to meal-prep, then this recipe is for you! Make it ahead and let it sit in the fridge until ready to eat (store up to 4 days).
