Overnight Pumpkin Oats

Steel-cut oats are a wonderfully hearty way to start the day, but since they require 20 to 25 minutes to simmer on the stove, they aren’t always practical. You can get a head start with this recipe – the oats soak overnight, which cuts the cooking time nearly in half come morning.

Ingredients:

  • 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 cup rice milk
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin pie puree
  • 1 tablespoon maple syrup
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 teaspoon vanilla extract
  1. Combine all the ingredients in a large bowl; cover and refrigerate overnight.
  2. In the morning, bring the mixture to a boil in a saucepan. Reduce heat to medium-low and simmer for 15 minutes, until the oats are tender, stirring occasionally.
