This recipe is provided by registered dietitian Ashley Koff and Nature’s Path.

Ingredients

  • 1 packet of oatmeal, such as Nature's Path Original Oatmeal or Nature’s Path Gluten Free Homestyle Plain Oatmeal
  • 3/4 Cups sweet pumpkin, mashed (can also use sweet potato)
  • 2 Tablespoons chia seeds
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 Teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 Tablespoons raw organic cacao powder
  • 1 Cup unsweetened non-dairy milk
  • 1/4 Teaspoon pure vanilla extract (optional)
  • 4 Tablespoons hemp seeds

Directions

In a medium bowl, place the pumpkin and stir in the cayenne, cacao, and cinnamon. 

Continue to stir in the hemp and chia seeds until well-combined.

Stir in the oats, non-dairy milk, and vanilla (if using).

Separate the mixture into two mason jars.

Cover with lids and refrigerate overnight, or a minimum of 3 hours.

Wake up in the morning and enjoy.

*Note: if too thick, add a tablespoon of non-dairy milk and stir; if too mushy you can add an additional tablespoon of chia seeds, stir in, and wait 30 minutes before eating.

*Need a stimulant boost? Add a shot of espresso (instead of drinking your coffee).
