Spiced Pumpkin Oats, Coconutty Toasted Nuts, and Cinnamon Crunchy Almond Butter
If you have not jump in the “overnight oats in a jar” wagon you are missing hundreds of delicious and the easiest ways to eat oats!
Today I was reading the Magnolia Journal Magazine and they published 4 ways to make overnight oats: Honey Orange Chia, Cranberry Gingerbread, Maple Apple Crunch and Fruity Peanut Butter - this is NOT one of their recipes. They all look delicious but I did not have those ingredients so...
As usually happens when I am seeing food in TV or online - I immediately wanted an overnight oats without having to wait until tomorrow and with the ingredients I have at hand...
And here you have what I have created...
Spiced Pumpkin Oats
and I couldnt wait to eat them, hence I am not calling them “overnight oats”! 😁👏🥳
This oats in a jar came out creamy and delicious, with the flavors of a pumpkin pie and the fall! Even my boyfriend liked it and he is not easy to please.
- Is not even fair to call this a recipe cause I just mixed some ingredients in a jar, seasoned it with spices and a bit of sweetness, waited 15 minutes to allow to marinate and thickened, topped with crunchy and more flavorful mixtures and called it a “healthy snack”... you can call it whatever you want! -
