It’s finally September, and you know what that means… PUMPKIN EVVVEEERRRRRYTHING. That’s right—I’m that #basic and I know it. In all seriousness though, pumpkin is hands down one of my favorite flavors of all time, so if I can find a way to sneak it into my recipes, I most certainly do.

Let me preface by saying this is definitely a by request post, thanks to a good friend of mine for talking up this recipe on his radio show (you know who you are ;)). While I knew this friend of mine had a slight obsession with overnight oats (and feet, I’m learning via his hilare morning show, Johnjay and Rich, that you should check out), I wasn’t sure how my fall-fave recipe would measure up to his typical top-notch cuisine. Turns out (praise the Lord) he loves it so much that he’s mentioned it a handful of times on both his morning radio show AND his personal social media pages…which has several of his fans begging for the low-down on this little pumpkin treat.

So, the exact recipe he uses was tailored to his macro/nutrition plan (so, Johnjay…don’t freak when you see this recipe is slightly different than yours), but below are the original men’s and women’s recipes for you to follow. For my carb cyclers out there (yes, you), this recipe will plug in perfectly to ANY day’s breakfast (high or low carb day).

Without further adieu, my (almost) famous Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats!
