This post was created in partnership with The Quaker Oats Company. As always all opinions are my own and I appreciate your support!

Overnight oats are one of my favorite ways to enjoy oats! Even though I work from home and have the luxury of taking extra time to make breakfast, I like prepping them the night before to have them ready to go in the morning for breakfast time!

How I flavor my overnight oats tends to change with the season. In the fall it should come as no surprise that I like adding pumpkin, but one flavor combination that never fails year-round is almond butter and jelly!

Like the classic combination of peanut butter and jelly that reminds me of the lunch I packed for school of all of those years, almond butter and jelly overnight oats are a slightly more refined, yet equally delicious version.

Oats are a great option for breakfast time because of the nutrition they provide. They’re definitely a pantry staple I recommend having on hand. I often share other ways I use them on Instagram too!

For over 140 years, Quaker has been the leading expert in oats, committed to combining science, scale, passion and expertise, and dedicated to researching all that this powerful grain has to offer. Their nourishing oats are produced with high standards of quality, taste and safety.

The oats used in each variety of Quaker Oats – instant, quick, old fashioned and steel cut – are 100% whole grain, and ounce per ounce, they all provide similar amounts of fiber, vitamins and minerals.

Oats & Heart Health

Oats are a simple and great way to support a healthy heart. There’s solid evidence that whole grain oats and oat bran can help lower blood cholesterol thanks to the power of beta-glucan – a soluble fiber, largely unique to oats, that basically tells your liver to pull LDL (bad) cholesterol out of the blood. Then, it binds to some of the cholesterol in your gut, keeping it from ever reaching your bloodstream.  Three grams of soluble fiber from oats as part of a diet low in saturated fat and cholesterol may help reduce the risk of heart disease.  A serving of Quaker Old Fashioned Oats provides 2 grams.  Another reason why adding oats to your diet in a variety of ways is a great idea!

Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter

Pumpkin spice almond butter is a must have for fall! It’s spiced just right and easy to make in a food processor — perfect on top of everything from toast to apples slices this fall!

As a huge nut butter lover, nothing sounded better to me than to combine my two favorite things — pumpkin spice and almond butter into one delighted spread that is perfect and healthy for the season!

Almond butter is easy to make at home (and in some cases a lot cheaper!). My tip for getting inexpensive raw almonds is to pick them up in the bulk section of your grocery store. You can find a lot of different nuts, seeds, and flours (including almond flour!) for a lot cheaper in that section!

To make this pumpkin spice recipe you will process the almonds in a food processor until almond butter starts to form. It may seem like it’s taking a long time, but that’s normal. The almond butter will start forming a few minutes into processing.

When you get to a slightly creamy and drizzle-y consistency, the almond butter will be warm, throw it in the fridge for a few minutes and then eat it on one of the delicious and healthy ways I suggested below!

Ingredients for Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter

  • raw almonds
  • coconut oil
  • dates
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • cinnamon
  • vanilla
  • salt

How to Use Pumpkin Spice Almond Butter

The possibilities are truly endless, but here are some of my favorite ways to use this delicious spread!

  • on a pumpkin spice bagel
  • on a pumpkin spice english muffin
  • on pumpkin spice toast
  • on pumpkin bread — like this better than Starbucks healthy pumpkin bread!
  • Mixed into your coffee for a hint of fall
  • in a pumpkin spice smoothie
  • with honeycrisp apple slices
  • with a bananas or berries
  • drizzled on popcorn
  • drizzled on pancakes or waffles
  • on top of oatmeal like these pumpkin flax overnight oats
  • make and A&J sandwich (like a PB & J except with almond butter!)

Almond butter is a good source of healthy fat and protein, both are crucial for fullness and satiety. Pairing it with fruit or a source of whole grains makes it part of a well rounded snack and something you’ll want to reach for at 3pm on a crisp fall day (because it’s pumpkin spice!).

When it comes to snacking, my rule of thumb is something I call the “P & F’ power couple, aka protein and fiber! These two things will make your snack work harder for you and keep you fuller for longer.
