Enjoy Maple Pumpkin Banana Overnight Oats for a protein and fiber packed grab-and-go breakfast.
I’ve probably made 20 different kinds of overnight oats and had not yet experimented with pumpkin. I recently purchased a 3 pack of large cans of pumpkin puree (thank you Costco), and have been experimenting with all kinds of recipes from smoothies to pancakes to muffins, oatmeal and bread pudding. This Maple Pumpkin Banana Overnight Oats recipe combines my favorite breakfast with my favorite flavors. For 280 calories, you’ll gain 153% of your daily recommended intake of Vitamin A, 25% of calcium and over a third of your daily fiber. You’ll also stay satisfied for hours thanks to the blood sugar stabilizing protein and fiber from the oats and fruit. Enjoy!

Tips: If you are avoiding all added sugar, you can skip the maple syrup altogether or use a sugar free version.The varieties I prefer contain maltitol (a sugar alcohol) or monkfruit (a natural sweetener) and are free of the artificial sweeteners typically found in sugar free syrup.
