pumpkin overnight oats

In the summer months I love a nice cold fruit smoothie in the morning, but since the weather has cooled off I just want something warm and creamy. Overnight oats are the perfect solution. This was my first time using pumpkin puree in my recipe and it turned out quite nicely. The great thing about overnight oats is they take no time at all, you just throw the ingredients in a jar put them in the fridge overnight and in the morning breakfast is ready! 😉 You can throw so many different things in them to customize the recipe to your liking. I usually throw in chia seeds and buckwheat groats for an extra health boost. Buckwheat groats have so many health benefits one is that they fight inflammatory conditions! So get out a jar and throw in your favourite super foods, and enjoy a healthy breakfast.
