I recently defrosted some more of my homemade pumpkin puree, which was the featured star in this morning’s breakfast.
The Great Pumpkin Overnight Oats
Mixed the night before:
- 1/4 C old-fashioned oats
- 1/2 C kefir
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp ground flax
- Dash of pumpkin spice powder
- (forgot to add banana!!)
In the morning:
- Spoonful of Barney Butter Smooth Almond Butter
- Spoonful of TJ’s Pumpkin Butter (best pumpkin butter ever!!!)
- Sprinkle of unsweetened shredded coconut
Served with a side of yesterday’s batch of coconut chocolate chip oatmeal scone with a spread of Seggiano smooth dark chocolate hazelnut
And pumpkin spice coffee
I absolutely <3 pumpkin and will be super bummed when I officially run out. There is just something about its natural sweet flavor that appeals to my taste buds. That and every time I eat pumpkin, I think of Linus from the Peanuts and how he always gives up trick-or-treating in hopes of meeting the Great Pumpkin. His dedication to the Great Pumpkin never fails to bring a smile to my face.
