Overnight Oats with Pumpkin, Bananas, and Pecans

My younger sister has recently discovered her favorite breakfast is a no-go for her, so I was on the search to find something yummy, healthy, and fast for her to eat in the mornings. In doing so, I have found my new favorite breakfast. You make it in a jar the night before, shake it up, and add a topping in the morning. It is delicious and filling, after I eat it I am not even hungry for a snack until lunch. You can try many other variations to mix it up- peanut butter instead of pumpkin butter, strawberries/blueberries instead of bananas. Make it what you like.

First, this are made in a jar, so get your jar out.

Next, put the oats and milk in the jar, and stir in the pumpkin butter and flax seeds. Mix in the bananas. Sprinkle in the cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice, cover the jar and shake.

Refrigerate these oats until the morning. Take out and microwave until you get your desired heat.
