*Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats*

Ok another overnight oats idea.... Everyone here should already know I have a slight obsession with Pumpkin.  Love it.  Can't get enough.  Added bonus - it's low in calories, and high in Fiber - and full of nutrients!

I am not a fan of cereal or Oatmeal for breakfast -- too many carbs & not enough protein.  But with oatmeal, you can add protein powder - and BOOM!  Protein Packed Oatmeal!  Which makes it the perfect breakfast!!

1/4 cup quick oats
1/2 scoop vanilla protein powder
1/8 cup canned pumpkin
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut milk (I use So Delicious - from the box, not the refrigerated section - 45 cal/cup,, 15mg sodium)
1/4 cup plain greek yogurt (I used Oikos)
1/2 tbsp flax seed
1/2 tbsp chia seeds
packet truvia (or sweetener of choice)

Combine all ingredients in bowl/jar.  Mix well.  Cover and refrigerate overnight. In the morning - grab a spoon and dig in!

  1. Sounds great... what kind of protein powder do you recommend? 1/2 a scoop is different in every brand.. esoecially the taste.

    1. Kelly - I use Body Fortress (I get it at walmart) -- It's got a good amount of protein, it's 140 calories/scoop - tastes great - low in sugar - and it's very affordable!
