Imagine waking up to find a healthy, delicious breakfast already prepared for you?  We can make that thought a reality – the answer is overnight oats!  As busy working moms, we know how important meal planning can be to keep yourself and family fed well.  It takes just 5 minutes in the evening to prepare this protein, fiber and nutrient packed meal.

We paired this recipe of overnight oats with a Fall season favorite, pumpkin! Pumpkin adds great flavor as well as, nutrients and fiber. One cup of canned pumpkin contains 7 grams of fiber and 3 grams of protein, along with being packed with nutrients including  vitamin A, vitamin C, and potassium.  To boost the protein in our overnight oats recipe we added Icelandic Provisions Skyr*.  Skyr is an Icelandic dairy product made with authentic Heirloom Skyr Cultures that creates a thick, creamy texture that’s less tart than Greek yogurt.  Skyr is a great protein source to add to recipes.

Make a few overnight oats at a time and vary the ingredients to meet everyones taste preferences.  We get our kids involved and create quick breakfasts for the entire school and work week.  AND do not waste that opened canned of pumpkin, use it in another recipe.  Make with the family our Pumpkin Oat Muffins for snacks, too!
