Hey there, Kinfoke! October is here and what better way to get into the season than by cooking with pumpkin. Pumpkins are a spooky superfood…spooky GOOD! Hahaha for real though, pumpkins are packed with fiber, potassium, and tons of other health benefits.
We have found oats are an excellent way to fuel for our workouts. Overnight oats are easy because they require no cooking, very little prep, and you can create so many flavors!
Trumpkin Spice Overnight Oats are the perfect way to get a good dose of fiber and festivity in your breakfast. Pumpkins add sweetness as well as great color and texture.
Mix your gluten free oats with mashed steamed pumpkin, shredded coconut, banana milk (click here for that recipe), maple syrup, and cinnamon. Try other add-ins like hemp seeds, hemp butter, sunflower or pumpkin seeds.
Recipe for 1 serving for 2 people:
For instance we each eat ½ cup of oats
1 pie pumpkin-steamed and pureed in food processor
1 tbsp hemp seeds
1 tbsp chia seeds
1 tbsp date/maple syrup
1 tbsp cinnamon
1-1.5 cups water (roughly)
Adjust your ingredients depending on your needs. SB and I typically have the suggested serving of oats plus all the toppings, but make yours depending on your caloric requirements. Overnight oats are great for breakfast or even a meal on the go. Have them for breakfast or even as a dessert!!
Pumpkins are so cool because you can save the seeds and roast them to make a snack! Bake them for 45 mins on 300 degrees.
