I am not a morning person. My husband knows it, my friends know it and my kids really know it! I do make the occasional splurge and wake up early to make something special. But on a typical weekday morning, it is hard for me to do much more than throw a bowl of cereal in their direction and hope they eat fast so we aren’t late for school.
This year I have made a resolution. I want to give my kids a great breakfast that will actually help them through the day. So I turned one of my favorite desserts into a quick and delicious breakfast that I can make the night before and my kids can eat at the kitchen table or even on the go!
Pumpkin Pecan Crumble Overnight Oats
This recipe is simple to make and I bet you have all of the ingredients in your pantry right now.
First, pick out your container of choice. I love to use a mason jar because it looks so decadent and it doesn’t take up much room in my fridge.
Add in the Quaker® Old Fashioned Oats, milk, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, maple syrup and brown sugar.
Stir until it is well combined.
Place the jar into the refrigerator overnight. As it sits, the Quaker® Oats absorb all of that pumpkin spice goodness until they are popping with flavor in the morning.
Pecan Crumble Topping
Now comes the pièce de résistance of the breakfast—the topping. The pecan crumble topping is what adds the extra crunch to the nutty flavor of the oatmeal and the sweetness of the pumpkin. You can definitely go without it but really, why would you?
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.
Mix together the melted butter, brown sugar, whole wheat flour and chopped pecans in a small bowl.
Spread the mixture on a parchment covered cookie sheet. Bake 8 minutes, remove and cool. If a spoonful of the topping goes missing, no one will ever know, I promise. Not like I have ever done that before.
Store it in a covered container or even just a resealable bag until morning.
In the morning sprinkle the oatmeal mixture with the pecan crumble topping.
It’s so delicious you won’t believe that it is good enough to be breakfast. And the best part–you didn’t even have to get up early to make it!
