How to Make Easy Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Overnight Oats are one of the most popular recipe ideas on the web this year. Have you tried them yet?

A simple, healthy breakfast option, here’s how they work: Old-fashioned oatmeal is stirred into milk or yogurt, then left overnight in the fridge. As they sit, they soak and soften. When morning comes, all you have to do is pull the jar of oats out and enjoy! They can be served hot or cold, however you like your oatmeal. And may be the simplest way ever to prep-ahead a whole week of delicious ready-to-go breakfasts in just a few quick minutes. 

Basic overnight oats are typically vanilla flavored. But, with the autumn season upon us, we thought a Pumpkin Spice version would be extra nice. So, we hit the Good Cook kitchen and created this absolutely splendid combo. Quick and simple, these overnight oats taste exactly like a Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookie. But they’re chock full of ingredients that are so good for you, you can enjoy ’em for breakfast!
