This Pumpkin Pie Greek Yogurt Bowl is full of fall flavor, and topped with crushed graham crackers, chopped pecans, and extra cinnamon. A high protein breakfast for pumpkin pie lovers!
That moment when you are ready for fall, sweaters, falling leaves, and all the pumpkin...but it's still 84 degrees outside. THIS pumpkin pie greek yogurt bowl is the answer you've been looking for. All the fall flavor, no oven required, and can be enjoyed no matter what the weather outside is.
As much as I love fall, (I am an October bébé after all) I try to make the most of the summer season before turning over a new leaf (ha!) to a new season. BUT, the day after labor day...gimme all the pumpkin, apple, and crisp air this gal can handle!
Sometimes though, the weather isn't quite ready to let go of 90% humidity and temps over 75 degrees. So something cool, satisfying, and full of pumpkin pie flavor is just what the fall lovers asked for.
Ingredients you'll need to make this
- plain Greek yogurt
- vanilla extract
- maple syrup
- pumpkin purée
- pumpkin pie seasoning
- cinnamon graham cracker
- chopped pecans
In a small mixing bowl, add 1 cup of plain Greek yogurt ( I used low-fat), 1 teaspoon vanilla extract, 1 tablespoon maple syrup, ¼ cup pumpkin purée, ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, and ½ teaspoon cinnamon, and stir until full combined.
Crush one square of a cinnamon graham cracker, and crumble over the yogurt, Sprinkle in 2 tablespoons of chopped pecans, and add an extra sprinkle of cinnamon before enjoying.
- Yogurt - For a plant-based option, use a dairy-free yogurt alternative. Also, make sure there is no honey in the graham crackers you use.
- Nuts - Swap out the chopped pecans for chopped walnuts, or use pumpkin seeds for a nut-free option.
- Graham crackers - If you don't have graham crackers, you can also use cinnamon granola.
- If making ahead of time, leave off the graham crackers and chopped pecans until ready to enjoy to prevent them from getting soggy.
- Adjust the sweetness to your liking with the amount of maple syrup you add to the yogurt.
How long does this yogurt last?
If covered in the refrigerator, this can last up to 4 days. I suggest leaving off the chopped pecans and graham crackers until you are ready to eat to keep them from getting soggy.
What kind of graham crackers do I use?
If you're a big cinnamon fan like me, use the cinnamon graham crackers. If you want a little less intense cinnamon flavor, use honey graham crackers instead.
Can I use something else besides pecans?
Absolutely! You can use chopped walnuts, or even pumpkin seeds if you want a nut-free option.
