Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

There’s more to pumpkin than meets the eye. A single cup of pumpkin provides seven grams of fiber to aid in digestion and a third of the daily need for vitamin K. Its bright orange color brings beta carotene to the mix, which acts as an antioxidant, fighting inflammation.

It’s also great for eye health. Pumpkin seeds offer healthy fats while packing in folate, an important nutrient for pregnant women to help prevent birth defects.

From pumpkin pancakes to baked oats, there are diverse ways to use this nutrient-dense fall crop.

  1. There is no nutritional breakdown such as fat, protien or carbs. This is very important to us Type 1 diabetics. Also honey may be natural but it effects my blood sugar just like sugar does.

    1. Hi Alice,

      Thanks for reaching out. We have updated the recipe to include the nutritional analysis for this recipe. And like you mentioned, honey is still an added sugar like table sugar, so you can use this recipe with or without it. There are some health benefits to using honey over table sugar, such as, honey has a lower glycemic index than table sugar so it will still impact your blood sugar levels but not as high or as fast. Honey also had antimicrobial and antifungal properties, while helping with gut health to boost the immune system. Hope that helps!
