Apple Pie Overnight Oats

1 cup old-fashioned oats

1/2 teaspoon ground cinnamon

1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract

2 tablespoons chia seeds, optional*

3 tablespoons maple syrup (sweetener of choice)**

  • *Optional: 1 tablespoon coconut oil or unsalted butter. To add calories and protein, you can also use milk instead of water to make it richer and creamier. You can even top your oatmeal with some nuts like almonds or walnuts for added crunch!

Directions: Place all ingredients except for the syrup in a small bowl on top of a sauce pot filled with water. Heat over low heat until all ingredients are dissolved, about 2 minutes. Add sweetener if desired once mixture is hot.* Pour into an mason jar then refrigerate overnight so that everything has time to absorb all those delicious flavors! In the morning enjoy this creamy tasty treat while reading up on what kinds of fall activities are happening near you!

Cranberry Walnut Quinoa

Quinoa is a grain-like seed that cooks in about 20 minutes and has a taste similar to couscous. It can be used as a substitute for rice or pasta and is high in protein, fiber, and minerals like manganese and magnesium.

You can buy quinoa at any grocery store—just look for it in the rice aisle near the boxed grains. You may also see it labeled as “quinoa flour” or “quinoa flakes.” When you’re ready to cook some up, start with 1 cup (about 160 grams) rinsed quinoa plus 2 cups water or other liquid (it doesn’t need to be precise). Bring everything to a boil, then reduce heat until it’s simmering. Cover with lid slightly open so steam can escape then cook until all liquid is absorbed—about 15 minutes if you’ve used water; 40 minutes if you’ve used broth instead! Use tongs or wooden spoon handle to fluff cooked grains once they’re done steaming off heat.[1]

Creamy Sweet Potato Casserole.

This creamy sweet potato casserole is a fantastic option for your fall dinner table. It’s easy to make and features all the things you love about sweet potatoes: they’re nutritious, filling, and have a natural sweetness that makes them perfect for pairing with other flavors.

This dish is especially good at feeding large groups—it goes well with almost any meat or fish dish (especially if you serve it on top of mashed potatoes). It can also be served as an appetizer before dinner or as part of brunch menu.

Stuffed Acorn Squash with Quinoa & Cranberries

This recipe is a delicious way to warm up on a cool autumn night. Acorn squash are easy to prepare and make for an impressive presentation. The filling is made with quinoa, fresh cranberries, shallots and apples for a light but hearty main dish that can be served at any time of year.

The first step in making this dish is preparing the acorn squash by cutting it in half lengthwise and removing seeds from inside. This can be done with a sharp knife or spatula if you want to get fancy! Next preheat your oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit then place each half face down on foil lined baking sheet; place in oven and roast until fork tender (about 30 minutes).

Once cooked remove from oven let cool enough so you can handle without burning yourself while still hot; scoop out pulp with spoon leaving 1/4 inch border around edges remaining intact – this will help prevent leaking when we add filling later down line before serving! Now we are ready for assembly which should look like below picture 🙂

Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins

The combination of pumpkin, cinnamon and maple syrup is so delicious and perfect for fall. These muffins are perfect for breakfast but you can also enjoy them as a snack or dessert.

You can make this recipe easy by using store-bought granola that’s available in most grocery stores, or you can make your own. This recipe will leave you with some extra granola which is great to use in oatmeal, smoothies or even as a snack on its own! I love the fact that these muffins have no refined sugar because it makes them healthy too! They have all the flavors from pumpkin pie without being too heavy!

The next time you need to bake something special for someone special this season try making Pumpkin Coffee Cake Muffins from scratch! It will be an amazing treat that everyone will love!

You can make these in the oven or in a dehydrator (if you have one). You’ll need organic sweet potatoes that have been scrubbed clean then sliced into thin rounds with a mandolin slicer tool or knife before being placed on parchment paper-lined baking sheets or dehydrator trays lined with non-stick sheets (like silicone mats). If using an oven: preheat to 250F/120C degrees until golden brown & crispy on both sides (30 minutes).

Bake for 1 hour, flipping occasionally throughout the process with metal tongs or spatula until they are dried out but still moist on the inside when bitten into one piece at a time (they should be crunchy but stay together in one bite). Let cool completely before eating!
