Pumpkin Peanut Butter Cookie Dough Overnight Oatmeal

With Thanksgiving here in less than two days, I thought it would be appropriate to share with you a new oatmeal recipe.

This overnight oatmeal recipe is quick and easy to prep the night before, and is of course a healthy (and of course yummy!) way to start your holiday.

Just because you’re going to eat a huge feast, does not mean you should skimp out on breakfast. What most people don’t realize is that breakfast is essential to kick start your metabolism. If you do not eat breakfast, you are only setting yourself up for disaster (over-eating, and snacking on unnecessary treats before dinner).

This breakfast is sure to keep you satisfied until Thanksgiving dinner is ready.
