Overnight Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal
I hope by now you have put away your white clothes (yes, no white after Labor day!) and are turning your thoughts to fall. Because once your turn your calendar to September, it is getting to be cooler days and all access pumpkin season! I can't think of a better way to welcome fall (and get your day off to a great start) than making overnight oatmeal.
Just toss the ingredients into a big bowl, let sit overnight and enjoy in the morning. I bet you can even sleep in a little later too - now that sounds really good to me too.
Wake up to these overnight oats that are a great way to start your day!
I hope you had a really great summer. Ours went by in a blur - one minute is was Memorial Day and then next it was Labor Day. We were super busy about every weekend and I didn't even blog much this summer as you may have noticed.
But now I am ready to get back in the saddle and planning out some recipes to try. I have to admit most of them involve pumpkin but tis the season for that so be sure to stop back to see what else I will be making. Feel free to leave a comment and give me some more ideas too.
Start with some of these ingredients. Be sure to top with a drizzle of maple syrup!
What ingredients are needed for overnight pumpkin spice oatmeal?

In past years I have made some other pumpkin recipes like this easy Pumpkin Banana Quick Nut bread and this super popular recipe now Pumpkin Pop Tarts. I know soon too I'll be needing to think about apple recipes. Our lone tree in the yard looks pretty loaded this year. Can't wait for that fall favorite either!
How are overnight oats made?
Well, this is the super easy part. Other than the pecan topping and maple syrup drizzle, all the ingredients are mixed together, divided into individual containers, covered and left in the refrigerator for at least 6 hours (though overnight is best).
How easy is that??
We liked our oats with crunchy pecans but you could substitute other kind of nuts, pumpkin seeds, etc.
And of course, don't forget to drizzle a bit of maple syrup too.
Can overnight oatmeal be heated?
I've heard this question a lot and the answer is yes.
While the oatmeal is perfectly great tasting from the refrigerator (plus think grab and go for something easy on the run), you could microwave for about two minutes.
