Can you believe there is just over 2 weeks until the official start of Fall?
Omg, I can’t tell you just how excited I am for the autumn season! Summer is okay - I should probably appreciate summer more than I do, like the folks up north, but it just goes from hot to hotter here in Florida, so usually I can’t wait for the cooler softer air of the Autumn.
There’s a beautiful type of breeze it brings with it, and a particular fresh smell in the air - it’s hard to describe, but I just love it.
Of course, with autumn also comes Halloween, Thanksgiving, crunchy leaves, pumpkin carving, autumnal decorations, baking and, most importantly, pumpkin spice - yum!
Though, technically, pumpkin spice has been around since last month!
I have to admit, I've never eaten a slice of pumpkin pie before, but like most people I just love the taste of the latte. I know it’s crazy… I need to try pumpkin pie out properly, so this year I’m making it my mission to bake one up. We usually use the flesh from our pumpkin carving for pumpkin soup, so I’ll have to take some of that for my pie.
I’ll keep you updated on how it goes on my socials!
Back to pumpkin spice!
Anyways, since I love the taste of pumpkin spice latte so much, last season I started adding pumpkin spice to my healthy overnight oats! With a little bit of testing, I managed to make it taste deliciously sweet without any added sugar - it’s wonderful and actually really, really healthy!
There is no actual pumpkin in my sugar-free pumpkin spice oats, but it has all the Autumnal spices and tastes divine.
I love the texture of the overnight oats the way they are and I think the pumpkin would definitely change the texture. And it keeps the calories lower.
Yesterday I woke up feeling so excited for the autumn that I decided that it’s already high time to be starting on the pumpkin spice recipes, so that’s why I’m choosing to share my sugar-free pumpkin spice overnight oats - after all, I’m making them for lunch today anyway!
If you don’t already know, I’m currently participating in sugar-free September, and sharing a sugar-free recipe every single day this month!
You’ll be in a cozy sweater Autumn dream with these sugar-free pumpkin spice oats! As you take your first bite, it’s literally like taking a bite of fall! It’ll take you back to all your favorite memories of jumping in leaves or sipping on that spicy latte!
I totally suggest you top these overnight oats with cinnamon, toasted diced nuts (my fave being pecans and/or hazelnuts for a fantastic crunch factor), and maybe even diced apple and pear for an extra autumnal sweetness.
When you eat my sugar-free pumpkin spice oats, you’re eating no-sugar and a super food packed meal!
Oats contain good carbs and are filled with fiber, which can help lower cholesterol, and protein. The chia in it are also supremely beneficial for your health, being high in protein and omegas fats which give you an energy boost and help you stay full.
Oats are also a fab source of iron, copper, zinc, selenium, magnesium, manganese, and vitamin E.
Oh man… I can’t wait for you to try this autumnal yum recipe!
With all of that said, here’s your recipe!
