Since fall is here, I had to do a warm and cozy recipe that had all the fall flavors. I hate to break it to you, but I am already slightly pumpkin-ed out. I know that may surprise you, but as a food blogger my Instagram feed has been flooded with pumpkin recipes, so I felt it was my duty to spice it up a bit.
Since pears are in season in the fall, and they’re highly delicious and highly underutilized in my opinion, I knew an easy recipe with pears would serve you well! This recipe is a quick, easy breakfast that you can personalize to your preferences. I love overnight oats because they are a no-stress breakfast. I’m one to skip breakfast if I am short on time in the morning. But with overnight oats, you wake up knowing breakfast is already made.
Spiced Pear Overnight Oats
- ½ cup old fashioned oats
- ½ cup milk or plant-based alternative
- 2 tablespoon Greek yogurt
- 1 teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ teaspoon nutmeg
- ¼ cup pears, sliced or chopped
- 2 teaspoon chia seeds
- 2 tablespoon honey
In a small or medium jar, add oats and milk and stir to combine, ensuring oats are soaked. Then add Greek yogurt — if desired, you can stir it into the oat and milk mixture. Toss in the cinnamon and nutmeg and add any of the optional toppings such as honey, chia seeds and/or walnuts. Place a lid or cover on the jar and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, ta-da! Your oats are ready. Stir to evenly distribute toppings. Lastly, add your pears!
