Pumpkin Overnight Steel Cut Oats

One of the reasons that I love Halloween is because it means we have pumpkins again. I love pumpkin everything: pumpkin bread, pumpkin pie, pumpkin lattes. If it has pumpkin in it, I want some!

Sometimes, it can be really tempting with all of the Halloween sweets that are available and loading up on pumpkin pie and pumpkin cheesecake won’t do me or my hips any good at all. Thankfully, I can enjoy the yummy pumpkin taste in these Pumpkin Overnight Steel Cut Oats without loading up on sugary Halloween treats.

These Pumpkin Overnight Steel Cut Oats are an easy way to have a healthy Halloween breakfast that doesn’t include lots of sugar and food coloring. All you need to do is start it the night before and it will be ready when you wake up.

Keep in mind that this contains no sweetener. You can leave it out if you like which is what I do. You can also add stevia, maple, honey or agave nectar. Try to stay away from sugar and artificial sweeteners to keep it healthy. Top with Greek yogurt and enjoy!

    Aloha — Your recipe sounds both yummy and healthy.  Cant wait to try it — especially as I want to increase use of ginger and cinnamon which are both good for circulation and inflammation.  Hmmmm just curious:  Where do you get the pumpkin.  LOL  Out of a can (if so any favourite brands), or do you have to buy the real McCoy?   MAHALO

    • I used a pumpkin from the farmer’s market but you could certainly use pumpkin from a can if you wanted to. Just be certain it was pumpkin and not pumpkin pie filling. Thanks!
