Steel Cut Oats + Yogurt + Pumpkin Spice Puree = a winning breakfast combination for fall

Fall is here in Chicago, and a warm breakfast makes for a great start to the day. In our family, two products make our breakfasts more delicious and easier than ever:

Adding these two ingredients to our breakfasts means we start our days with a packed protein punch that's natural, low in sugar and high in vitamins and minerals. 

If you're in a rush every morning like we are, here's a solution to having a healthy breakfast, ready to go: Overnight oats. Add some pumpkin puree to make it truly a seasonal treat of a breakfast

Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Fill a bowl or a mason jar with....

  • one layer of steel cut oats - I recommend Bob's Red Mill Steel Cut Oats
  • one layer of plain yogurt (about a half a cup) - I recommend Stonyfield Smooth & Creamy Organic Whole Milk Plain
  • one layer of pumpkin puree (about a half a cup)
  • top with a pinch of ground cinnamon

Cover and place in your fridge overnight. In the morning, you can eat immediately if you prefer your oats cold, or heat in the microwave for about a minute if you prefer your oats warm. Enjoy!
