Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oatmeal—THM Friendly!

Hello, readers!  I am finally back with a new recipe!! Sorry that it’s been a while. September is usually a happy month because summer ends and autumn officially begins. I love autumn! I was rather melancholy this September because my Citadel grad was preparing to leave for active duty. He left yesterday, and my momma heart has been hurting. Letting him go off to college was hard, but wasn’t as bad because we knew he would be home for Thanksgiving, Christmas, Easter, summer  and weekends in between. This departure, though, is harder because we have no clue when he will be able to come home. He is farther away, so weekend visits are out of the question, and since he doesn’t know his schedule yet, we can’t hope for Thanksgiving/Christmas visits. However, he is very happy to finally begin his career, and that makes me happy for him.

If you’ve been reading my posts any length of time, you will know that I love all things apple and pumpkin this time of year. Just plug “pumpkin” into the search bar and you will find quite a few recipes! Pumpkin spice anything is very popular in the fall. I am not a coffee drinker so pumpkin spice lattes don’t even tempt me. However, I do love the THM overnight oatmeal recipes that I’ve tried. Yummy! This morning I decided to make up my own using the pumpkin spice recipe that I shared here. I know, mixing it up this morning didn’t allow it to be an overnight recipe. Mixing it up in the morning, though, allows me to just zap it in the microwave and eat it quickly. I loved the way it turned out! If you enjoy pumpkin spice, too, give it a try for breakfast tomorrow!

1/3 c. old-fashioned oats

1-1/2 tsp truvia

1-1/2 tsp chia seeds

1 tsp. of pumpkin spice mix

pinch of salt

dash of vanilla

1/3 c. Greek yogurt

1/3 c. unsweetened almond milk

1-2 tbsp. pumpkin puree

Combine all the dry ingredients in a small mixing bowl. Stir in the wet ingredients.Taste just a bit to see if the spices are enough.You might want to adjust for flavor. Refrigerate overnight. In the morning, just give it a stir and eat! Yields one serving.

Since I didn’t let mine sit overnight, I put it into the microwave for about 60-90 seconds, stirring every 30-45 seconds. You can also heat it after letting it sit overnight.
