We hope you’ve been surrounded by all your favorite things this Fall, especially all things pumpkin. It’s the best time of year for it. This is also the best time of year for baking… but as hectic as life gets, we didn’t find ourselves baking much this week. This feels like THE WORST when all you crave is soft pumpkin goodies. We did however come up with something else! When you’re busy or just plain lazy, this no-bake treat is for you!
Overnight oats are a brilliant way to make easy breakfasts or snacks. With the right toppings, it can be on the brink of a dessert. Who doesn’t want that? One of our favorite fall treats is pumpkin pie. We loaded up oats with pumpkin, vanilla and pumpkin pie spice and found it came pretty close in flavor. This healthy treat is filling and so creamy with just the right amount of spice. Top it with a dollop of “whipped cream” and it becomes dessert for anytime!
