Oh, overnight oats! The simplest breakfast there ever was. I mean, what’s better than waking up to breakfast already completely done? I can’t think of anything else!

I love to mix up my overnight oats using seasonal flavors. Banana Fosters oats all year round, fruity oats with berries in the summer, pumpkin in the fall, and also apples in the colder months! Apples are so crisp and sweet right now, and they’re so amazing in these creamy overnight oats. Cinnamon adds a wonderful spice to the oats that isn’t overpowering – so your kids can definitely handle it!

These couldn’t be easier – 5 minutes of prep at night to have breakfast waiting for you when you wake up. Make a few jars of these apple cinnamon overnight oats to eat throughout the week and you won’t have to think about breakfast ever again!

Ah, Halloween. Such a fun and exciting holiday for the kids, but it can be difficult to navigate as a parent trying to feed the family healthy, nutritious foods. What’s a parent to do?

My philosophy is, let kids be kids. Sure, I will feed my kids as many vegetables and fruits and healthy proteins as I can at home, but when it comes to special occasions like birthday parties or Halloween, I let them enjoy it. I just follow up Halloween night with a super nutritious breakfast. ;)

The downside of Halloween is that it’s not just one night of candy – you’re stuck with tons of leftover candy and nothing to do with it! Not until now. Put that leftover candy to good use and make a semi-healthy treat the kids will love.

I say semi-healthy because we’re at least using a whole-wheat crust and yogurt in here. The candy is what makes it a special treat! You can use any candy you have in the house, but of course we’re partial to chocolate. I hope you and the kids enjoy this Halloween candy pizza!

Have you ever tried chia pudding? It’s a great grain-free alternative to oatmeal, and a healthy way to indulge in pudding for dessert. With some mashed pumpkin and a few spices, this Healthy Pumpkin Chia Pudding tastes just like a slice of pie!

When chia seeds are left to sit in liquid, they form a gel consistency that is just like pudding. They’re full of fiber and omega-3 fatty acids, so you can feel good giving your kids some ch-ch-ch-chia!

This pumpkin chia pudding is great for breakfast, a healthy sweet snack, or even an after-dinner dessert. For an even smoother consistency, you can blend all the ingredients after soaking to create a silky pudding. I love topping mine with crunchy pecans for texture and a drizzle of molasses for true pumpkin pie flavor. Grab a spoon and dig in!

Pumpkin season is in full swing over here! With the cooler weather comes lots of comforting, hearty dishes, hot chocolate, cozy movie nights, and of course, lots of pumpkin! We can’t stop eating this healthy pumpkin cookie dough dip right now; it’s perfect with fresh fruit! I had to make another pumpkin creation for the family to enjoy.

What happened was these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats. I’d say it was a great idea!

Oats are already a healthy breakfast option (especially for those who are gluten-free), and pumpkin just adds even more nutrition! It’s full of vitamin A for healthy eyes, beta-carotene, and fiber. Mixed with some cinnamon, pecans, and a drizzle of molasses, it’s the perfect fall addition to your morning bowl of oats. Plus, all you have to do is mix everything the night before, wake up, and dig in!
