Say hello to the first overnight oats recipe for this blog or The Diet Chef YouTube channel!
As you guys know, I’m a big, BIG, pumpkin fan. So it just seemed appropriate (especially since it’s fall), that the first recipe was pumpkin pie overnight oats!

Now these overnight oats are quite delicious, but my favorite part is that they ONLY take 2 minutes to prep! However, they have to refrigerate for 6-8 hours so the chia seeds can work their magic and really thicken this oatmeal up. Since the hardest part is waiting patiently for this to happen (atleast it is for me), I recommend making your oats right before bed. That way when you wake up breakfast is already made and you can start your day with little to no clean-up. Hooray to that!
