Ok, so we seem to have reached the point of the year where I'm open to pumpkin spice anything… While my husband might try to convince you I have a fall-flavoured screw loose somewhere, there's something about cold air and pumpkin spice that can make even 2020 feel a little warm and fuzzy!
Since my pumpkin spice options are frustratingly limited right now, I've been on the prowl for tasty pumpkin flavoured treats to sprinkle throughout my day.

Keep it FODMAP friendly
These easy low FODMAP pumpkin spice overnight oats are the perfect way to start your busy day! Check out the notes below for tips on keeping this recipe FODMAP friendly!
First up, oats. According to Monash University, rolled oats are low FODMAP in servings of 1/2 a cup (52 g) per sitting. Servings of 3/4 cups (78 g) or more are high in the FODMAPs fructan and GOS.
We'll be using 1/4 cup of oats which works out to 26 g per serving. This is well within Monash's recommended range.
Next up, milk. If you're in the elimination phase of the low FODMAP diet, you'll need to use lactose-free milk. We'll also be using plain yogurt. You'll need to use a lactose-free product for this as well.
For the yogurt, make sure you check the ingredients for sneaky FODMAPs like honey, high fructose corn syrup (HFCS) and artificial sweeteners.
We'll also be using pumpkin puree! According to the Monash app, canned pumpkin is low FODMAP in servings of 1/3 cup (75 g) per sitting. Servings of 1/2 a cup (120 g) or more are high in the FODMAPs fructan and GOS.
The rest of the ingredients won't add anything notable to your FODMAP load.
