Pumpkin Spice Homemade Muesli Recipe — A healthy no-cook breakfast made with oats, pumpkin seeds, coconut , and pumpkin pie spice. Perfect for fall!
There may be fewer and fewer leaves and apples left on trees, but I am holding onto that pumpkin spice love for as long as possible.
Truth be told I’ve never actually had a pumpkin spice latte from the bucks. Guess I’m not as basic as a hanes t-shirt after all. But I have had my fair share of pumped up pumpkin goodies on this little blog of mine, from s’mores, and dirt pie to martinis and chili, and now the newest pumpkin little to the clan, muesli.
AKA jacked up overnight oats. That take 5 minutes to mix, prepare, and inhale. The triple threat when it comes to Emily-style eats.
Sure, it may be a regular temp of 50 degrees nowadays so maybe cold breakfasts aren’t everyone’s cup of oats. For me, it’s just an excuse for an extra cup of coffee in the morning.
I like how muesli is pretty much the package deal. The hearty oats. The crunchy seeds. Fruits for sweetness. Ready and waiting for my devourment.
And pumpkin spice makes everything nice amiright?!
I’m not telling you how to live your life or anything, but adding some almond milk, greek yogurt, and chopped apples to a bowl of this homemade muesli will give your life purpose. ….At least for the 5 minutes it takes for you to eat it. I’ll leave the rest of the story up to you.
And hey, slapping a spoonful of that leftover canned pumpkin into the mix wouldn’t be frowned upon either. But this is coming from a gal who’s never had a pumpkin spice latte, so I can’t exactly speak with authority. I can however, speak from experience. Bowls and bowls…and bowls of experience.
