🍼 Overnight Oats For Breastfeeding
To make pumpkin overnight oats breastfeeding friendly, simply add 1 tbsp Brewers yeast to your overnight oat mixture.
You can also replace the almond milk with coconut milk in this recipe but NOT from the can as it will be too thick. Find coconut milk in the refrigerated section next to the almond milk and other dairy free milk.
This recipe uses unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but feel free to use any milk you prefer including soy milk, cashew milk, hemp milk or even oat milk.
Pumpkin pie filling already has sweetener and spices in it which means that the taste could change and possibly be too sweet and spicy if following the rest of this recipe. If you would like to use it anyway, try making it without any sweetener or spices and see how it tastes.
Instant oatmeal can be used for overnight oats, but since instant oats are pre-cooked, the texture will be a little bit more mushy than if using old fashioned rolled oats.
This recipe uses maple syrup to sweeten because it’s a great flavor profile to go with the fall flavors, but feel free to use any sweetener you’d like including stevia, monkfruit or coconut sugar.
Once overnight oats have been soaking in the fridge for at least 4 hours, you can transfer to a bowl and heat for 2 minutes in microwave or in small saucepan on stove until warmed through.
Overnight oats last for 5-7 days covered tightly in fridge. Keep in mind this may be about 3-4 days if you are using dairy milk.
