Pumpkin Chia Refrigerator Oats

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.

I promised another refrigerator oats recipe, and here it is.

I’m thinking this flavor combination — maple syrup + brown sugar — is my favorite. Don’t get me wrong. I love the other flavors. I just love this one a tad bit more.

I love the sweetness. I love the texture. And I seriously love the addition of chia seeds into the mix.

If you have been thinking about trying your hand at refrigerator oats, the time is officially now.

Clearly I’ve become obsessed with refrigerator oats.

They have certainly taken over more than just the top shelf in the fridge. They have also taken over my brain, my breakfast, and my Instagram feed.

Screen Shot 2015-08-09 at 8.25.41 PM

And frankly, I couldn’t be happier. I think my body was getting tired of the toast and fruit combo I had been rocking for a solid year.

It has been fun to play around with flavor combinations like peach + honey and strawberry. (Both delicious, BTW.)

I will say that this flavor combination, while amazing, might be better served as a snack. Or dinner (heh). Or…anything but first thing in the morning.

First time I tried it was at breakfast. And it kind of gave me a belly ache. Second time, late evening dinner snack with half of a banana sliced on top. Much better.

Strawberry Refrigerator Oats

Strawberry Refrigerator Oats

Last week was a game changer for me.

It brought a new breakfast to life in my kitchen: refrigerator oats. An easy no-cook, no-effort, super healthy way to start my day.

And, like my beloved smoothie, refrigerator oats have endless possibilities when it comes to flavor combinations.

strawberries, oats, and jars

Last week, my flavor obsession was peach + honey. This week? It’s the spectacular strawberry.

Truth be told, they are both delightful for very different reasons.

This time, jam is the sweetener of choice. And who can resist melt-in-your mouth sweet strawberries in peak season? It’s so simple it’s divine.

Do your taste buds and your belly a favor: make these purdy little oats for the rest of the week.

And then post pictures on Instagram, Facebook and Twitter for me to ooh and ahhh over. While you’re at it, make sure to tag me so I see it!
