Maple Pecan Overnight Oatmeal


It’s that time of year again. The leaves are changing, cool winds are blowing in, and I’ve got cravings for earthy autumn flavors. This means my morning smoothie is giving way to satisfying bowls of oats. I’ve actually been experimenting with several flavor variations, but this maple pecan overnight oatmeal is currently top on my list.

Serve topped with those freshly toasted maple pecans, and some additional So Delicious Dairy Free Milk Beverage, if desired.

If I’m in an extra-sweet mood, I top the warm bowl with a sprinkle of cinnamon and a very light drizzle of maple syrup. Because we all deserve a little treat now and then!
