Apple Pumpkin Pie Spice Overnight Oats

apple-pumpkin-spice-oats-healthy breakfast recipe

A few weeks ago, we made our way out to the apple orchard. It’s now part our fall traditions along with going to a pumpkin patch. And although the weather in southern California never quite makes it feel like it’s truly fall, we were excited to hear that cooler temperatures were expected on our apple picking day. By cooler, I mean in the 70s (ha! I know not so cool in other parts of the states). But once we arrived up the mountain top, we realized that the weather channel must have been talking about another city. It was actually hot and that’s when I realized that wearing black might not have been such a great wardrobe choice after all.

But regardless, we all had a blast and more so as my brother-in-law, sister-in-law and nephews (the girls’ primos) joined us as well. And, seriously, how cute are these kiddos? Biased over here but love seeing how excited they get when they see each other and play together. #CousinLoveApple-Pumpkin-Overnight-Oats-Apple-Picking

Apple Pumpkin Pie Spice Overnight Oats

Instructions

  1. Chop apple and place into skillet. Add 1 tbsp of honey and dash of pumpkin pie spice. Let simmer for about 5 minutes. Set aside to cool off. Add milk, oats, pumpkin & apple pie spice and honey into a bowl and mix. Add all ingredients from bowl into a container with a lid (I prefer using a mason jar). Fasten lid and shake until combined. Layer in pumpkin puree and then top off with chopped apples and sprinkle pepita seeds on top. Refrigerate overnight. Serve cold or warm!

While most people would make an apple pie or high in calorie treat with their orchard apples, we made a healthier and delicious way to get our apple pie fix. It’s great for parents that are on-the-go as it’s made overnight and a perfectly sweet way to start your day. Enjoy!

 

 

Cheers to all the apple and pumpkin fall recipes! Especially if they’re easy to make, delicious and on the healthier side.

Abrazos (hugs) — Gladys

  • It’s no surprise I’m a huge Las Vegas fan—and with good reason. Where else can you go watch a concert, gamble, rent a pool party cabana, eat at a five star restaurant at midnight, dance the night away plus get room service at any given time? .
These are just a few reasons why I continue to come back. And since I’m a December baby and love Vegas, pools and summer weather, I thought it would be fitting to celebrate a 1/2 birthday in Sin City right before I hit the big 4-0 (gulp!). .

  • 💦Are you team pool or team beach? 🏖 ¿ Eres equipo alberca (piscina) o equipo playa? .

I definitely love both but not a fan of bringing the beach sand home. 😆 We loved staying at @omnilacosta in Carlsbad, CA as they have a sandy beach family pool. It’s truly the best of both worlds. 🙌😉 #ad #omnilacosta #sandiego #familytravel
  • #ad  Where do your kids do their school and art work? For us, it's definitely the kitchen. So it made sense to create a workstation that stores our kiddos art, crafts and school materials in our kitchen island. The best part? It's easy for them to pull things out of the cabinet and place them on top of the counter as well as put everything back away. Plus, I'm also loving how @Clorox Disinfecting Wipes help me to clean, disinfect and refresh this workspace.

Mia our 7 yr old has been at summer camp at a university campus. And truth be told this is not how Lexi and I have been spending our time. I was a hot mess Monday and Lexi has been crying every morning.🙈 We know she’s having a blast in her robotics/ stem classes and making friends. So for now, I’m going to try my best to spend some quality time with my youngest. ☺️ Are you’re kids in summer camp? Were you also stressed out about leaving them? 😆 #summercamp #momlife #summer #momofgirls #summertime #summermemories #wearthesuit
