Pumpkin Protein Overnight Oats

This recipe gives all the fall vibes; it truly tastes like fall in a bowl. These overnight oats are delicious and rich in protein. Having a protein-rich breakfast helps balance blood sugars and promotes fullness; this will lead to less cravings throughout the day and sustained morning energy.


  • 2 apples, cored and diced
  • 1 cup yogurt (Greek, Icelandic, coconut, etc.)
    *Note: if you use plain, I recommend adding in some maple syrup for flavour
  • ½ cup rolled oats
  • 2 tbsp. New Roots Herbal’s Pumpkin Seed Powder
  • ½ cup milk of choice
  • 2 tbsp. maple syrup, divided
  • 1 tbsp. butter or coconut oil
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon, divided


Slice and dice apples (option to remove the peel).

In a small pan, heat coconut oil or butter. Add diced apples, ½ tsp. cinnamon, and 1 tbsp. maple syrup (optional). Stir and cook until apples are softened (5–6 minutes).

Mix together oats, milk, yogurt, ½ tsp. cinnamon, 1 tbsp. maple syrup, and half of the cooked apples.

Place mixture in an airtight container and store in the fridge overnight. Keep the other half of the apples for a topping to your oatmeal.

The next morning, enjoy topped with cooked apples, soft or slivered nuts, or any other topping of choice.

Note: You can warm the overnight oats up in the morning if you prefer a warm bowl (I know I do).

Makes 2 servings.
