Pumpkin is one of my favorite Fall mascots. It packs a lot of immune supporting nutrients, so it is perfect to add to your diet at the start of cold and flu season. Oats and pumpkin are also a great combination for weight management because both foods are full of fiber which supports a healthy GI system and keeps you satiated between meals. Simply prepare this recipe the night before and top it with your favorite seasonal toppings.

Makes 1 Serving

  • 1/3 cup old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon ground flaxseeds

  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin blend
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon

Optional Toppings:

  • Apples or banana slices
  • Pumpkin seeds or almond slivers

  • Cinnamon or pumpkin spice
  1. Place oats, almond milk, pumpkin purée, flax seeds, hemp seeds, pumpkin spice, cinnamon, in a Mason jar. Mix thoroughly to combine.
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight.

Enjoy with your favorite toppings. My husband John recommends apples, peanut butter, and cinnamon.
