Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Overnight Oats

This could be my last overnight oat recipe for a while.

For one thing, we’re getting burnt out on overnight oats.

Another reason: we’re running out of overnight oat flavors to try!

I’ve done apple pie, strawberry, blueberry and now pumpkin. What else is left?

This recipe was probably my favorite. Well, it’s a toss up between this and the apple pie recipe. I love fall flavors, and pumpkin is the essential fall flavor. This recipe exudes all those pumpkin spice flavors.

I had a half a bag of chocolate chips hanging out so I decided to throw those in for good measure. Everything turned out like a pumpkin spice dream. Chocolate and pumpkin, strangely enough, go really well together. The chocolate chips added a little burst of sweetness that helped balance out the earthy pumpkin.

My overnight oat recipe base is still the same: 1/2 cup oats, 3/4 cup vanilla almond milk or regular milk, 1/4 cup Greek yogurt. I’ve found you get a really thick and tasty oatmeal with that base.

Enjoy!
