Hear, hear. The pumpkin season is officially open. Prepare your pumpkins and warm seasonal spices and let’s start enjoying this delicious Autumn fruit in all forms.

Honestly, this year, I’ve long denied the fact that Fall arrived. It’s almost the middle of October and I still haven’t made one single pumpkin recipe. Well, that was until the last week. Although I totally LOVE sweet pumpkins, I strongly resisted the urge to start baking and making stuff with PUMPKINS. This year I just wanted to hold on to Summer a bit longer so I prolonged pumpkin recipes till recently. + I had this crazy obsession with apples.

But then I started imagined Pumpkin Cheesecake Muffins and Pumpkin Oatmeal Cookies and very soon I find myself craving for these sweet treats, like badly. Even more than apple ones.

Pumpkin soft autumn color and memory of her sweet taste got me craving that orange delight and so the first pumpkin landed in my kitchen. Finally!

Since I’m all in easy breakfasts lately, I decided to share my latest favorite – this delicious, super easy and SO flavorful Pumpkin Overnight Oats. This creaminess will make you want to jump out of that bed in the morning. It’s perfect healthy breakfast to wake up to.

Pumpkin Overnight Oats is one of those breakfasts that I call a whole, well-balanced meal packed in a jar. This delightful jar is loaded with healthy stuff – dietary fibers, healthy fats, and plant-based proteins. It’s basically everything your body needs in the morning. And more! It’s super delicious, sweet but low on calories, made entirely ADDED SUGAR-FREE. Win!

To make this Pumpkin Overnight Oats I used rolled oats and beautiful mild flavored almond milk. Of course, the star of this amazing good-for-you breakfast is, of course, PUMPKIN PUREE – a homemade one, made with real pumpkin, not some canned stuff.

To make pumpkin puree you just need a pumpkin – I used butternut – and a bit of time. Well, actually it bakes for itself for 45 minutes until softened. You don’t need to stand next to it.D’oh! Just slice the pumpkin in half, put it on a baking pan and bake. It’s a no-brainer really. You can try a cooked pumpkin puree version also. Same thing with just a bit more peeling and slicing required.

I rounded up this tasty story with amazing pumpkin spice mix – a combination of flavorful spices – ground Ceylon cinnamon, ginger, allspice, and nutmeg. Besides giving a pleasant aroma to Pumpkin Overnight Oats, these spices also offer plenty of healthiness to our body. Especially Ceylon cinnamon and ginger – aka. SUPER SPICES.

I topped this Pumpkin Overnight Oats with crunchy walnuts. But they are added not just for crunchiness. Walnuts are significantly higher in omega-3 fat that is important for our heart health as well as for reducing inflammation. That’s why I love them so much. Especially now, during Fall when they are in season. Also, walnuts are loaded with powerful antioxidants and other essential vitamins and minerals.

Since I’m always looking for ways to ENHANCE my breakfast with more nutrients and healthy goodness, I sprinkled these delicious oats with dried Goji berries packed with powerful antioxidants and hemp seeds that are bursting with proteins.
