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!
Butterscotch Pumpkin Overnight Dessert Oats: [low fat/sugar, high fiber/protein, GF, vegan]
(serves one very lucky person)
1 cup 100% Pure Pumpkin, canned
1 scoop Vanilla Protein Powder
1-5 packets Sweetener*
1/2 tsp Cinnamon
1/4 tsp Nutmeg
3-4 tbs Unsweetened Almond Milk
1-2 tsp Molasses (to taste, I use 2 tsp)
1/8 tsp Butterscotch Extract
1/2 cup Old Fashioned Rolled Oats (GF if you like)
1/4 cup Dried Cranberries (no sugar added)
1 tbs Raw Pecans, chopped (optional)
*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. Truvia, erythritol, sucanat or even maple sugar would be incredibly delicious here!
1. 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.
2. 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!
This breakfast bowl is pretty big, so look forward to a whole bunch of spoonfuls that look like this!
