Healthy Butterscotch Pumpkin Overnight Dessert Oats
I can’t believe this is healthy. It tastes like pure sin.
One bite and you’ll be hooked. It’ll feel like you’re “cheating” on your diet, even though you’re not straying one bit.
“This has got to be bad for me,” you say. But the little angel on your shoulder tells you otherwise…
… wait, that’s not an angel, that’s just the ingredient list!
Healthy Butterscotch Pumpkin Overnight Dessert Oats (refined sugar free, low fat, high protein, gluten free)
- In your serving bowl (I would say medium/large), mix together the pumpkin and protein powder (it's okay if there are clumps). Add in the sweetener and spices and stir again.
- Add the Step 2 ingredients and stir again (you can add the cranberries and pecans later if you want). Cover with plastic wrap and let sit in the fridge overnight. Enjoy first thing the next morning!
*I used five stevia packets, and lemme tell ya, this was one sweet bowl of oats! I definitely adore this breakfast/dessert, but if you're the type who likes mildly sweet foods, give it a taste in the morning and sweeten it from there. Erythritol, sucanat or even maple sugar would be incredibly delicious here!
This recipe is: low fat, low sugar, high fiber, high protein and gluten free!
This breakfast bowl is pretty big, so look forward to a whole bunch of spoonfuls that look like this!
I know what I’m making for breakfast all next week tomorrow 😉
