Pumpkin Chia Refrigerator Oats

Bet you thought I was done posting recipes for refrigerator oats.

So did I.

But with all of this unseasonably warm weather we’ve been having, it just felt appropriate to keep on eating them.

It also felt appropriate to transition the refrigerator oats into more fall-friendly flavors, making pumpkin the necessary next ingredient.

I went the lazy route and used canned pureed pumpkin because we had it on hand. But you could be a total rockstar and make your own pumpkin puree.

I also decided to keep it pretty plain, and skipped any fancy spices. Mostly because I tried a mix of allspice, nutmeg, and cloves and it was kind of…well…disgusting.

That’s what I get for not being able to use pumpkin pie spice (damn you, cinnamon sensitivity).

I bet if you used the real pumpkin pie spice blend, it would be pretty spectacular. Kind of like having pie for breakfast. And really, who wouldn’t want to do that.
