Spiced Pumpkin Oats, Coconutty Toasted Nuts, and Cinnamon Crunchy Almond Butter

Spiced Pumpkin Oats, Coconutty Toasted Nuts, and Cinnamon Crunchy Almond Butter

Hello Friends!

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! -

👉Instructions and what you will need...

Feel free to change ingredients with what you have at home...


1/2 cup pumpkin puree (canned or homemade - NOT pumpkin pie filling)

1 cup plant milk (I used a combo of coconut, almond and oat milk cause I have them)

1 teaspoon real vanilla extract

1 tablespoon real maple syrup

1 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

1/8 teaspoon ground cloves


1 heaping teaspoon of pumpkin spice store brought (to taste)

A pinch of salt


👉 Mix

all of these ingredients above in a jar and shake to mix well. TASTE and adjust to your taste (more maple or spices)



2 tablespoons ground flax seeds

1 tablespoon chia seeds

Mix again


1 cup old fashion rolled oats whole grains (GF) and mix to soak the oats well.

outside of the fridge for 15 minutes, add toppings and ENJOY IMMEDIATELY
