Breakfast Food Friday – Hearty Pumpkin Overnight Oats

My very first Breakfast Food Friday recipe (and one of my most popular recipes overall) was peanut butter cookie dough overnight oats.  The texture is thick and chewy, without being pudding like – cookie dough was the only way I could describe them.  Alyssa’s on the cookie dough oat band wagon as well, and Courtney featured some delicious looking custard oats yesterday.

I used the same basic ingredients to make these oats, but subbed in vanilla protein powder for the peanut flour and of course, added pumpkin.  They’re delicious cold, but even better microwaved for 1.5 – 2 minutes the next morning!
