Fall Oats- 3 ways

A little bowl of warm and toasty in the morning.

Its starting to get realllly cold here in Pennsylvania. Our house has quite a chill in the morning and I cannot make myself eat a breakfast that isn’t warm. So I put together a nice overnight oats recipe that can be easily warmed up in the microwave or on the stovetop. Since it is the heart of Fall, I like to stir in applesauce, pumpkin purée, or a mashed banana. You can eat these just as is, or top with a spoonful of my new favorite yogurt- Forager vanilla cashew yogurt. Enjoy!

Fall Oats


  • 1/2 cup rolled oats
  • 1 Tbsp chia seeds
  • 2 Tbsp chopped walnuts
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup
  • 3/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  • Choice of: 1/4 cup of applesauce or pumpkin purée OR 1 mashed banana

Take all of the ingredients and combine them in a bowl or a mason jar. Let it sit overnight and in the morning, heat it up.
