Trail Food // Pumpkin Overnight Oats


  • 3 tbs Pumpkin
  • 1/2 cup Milk of choice 
  • 1/4 cup Yogurt
  • 1/4 tsp Pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp Cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1/4 Maple Syrup 
  • 1 cup Oats
  • 1/4 cup Protein powder (or additional oats)
  • Handful of chopped nuts and additional maple syrup for topping

Mix the pumpkin, milk, and yogurt in a bowl until combined and mix in the remaining toppings. Divide between 2 small bowls, mugs, or mason jars. Cover and refrigerate overnight (or for at least an hour so the oats soften and absorb the liquid). Top with nuts and additional syrup and enjoy cold, or microwave for 30-60 seconds to enjoy warm! Eat it at home or pop them into your bag for a perfect trail snack/breakfast.
