Since fall is here, I had to do a warm and cozy recipe that had all the fall flavors. I hate to break it to you, but I am already slightly pumpkin-ed out. I know that may surprise you, but as a food blogger my Instagram feed has been flooded with pumpkin recipes, so I felt it was my duty to spice it up a bit.Spiced Pear Overnight Oats -

Since pears are in season in the fall, and they’re highly delicious and highly underutilized in my opinion, I knew an easy recipe with pears would serve you well! This recipe is a quick, easy breakfast that you can personalize to your preferences. I love overnight oats because they are a no-stress breakfast. I’m one to skip breakfast if I am short on time in the morning. But with overnight oats, you wake up knowing breakfast is already made.

Instructions:

In a small or medium jar, add oats and milk and stir to combine, ensuring oats are soaked. Then add Greek yogurt — if desired, you can stir it into the oat and milk mixture.
