If you couldn’t already tell, we LOVE pumpkin! What do we love more than pumpkin? Pumpkin with chia seeds, of course! Pumpkin, just like chia, is a Magical superfood loaded with fiber and disease-fighting nutrients like magnesium, potassium, Vitamin C and E. However, the star in this fruit is the abundance of carotenoids! In just one ½ cup serving, you get more than 200% the recommended daily intake of alpha-carotene and 100% of the daily recommended intake of beta-carotene!

What better way to enjoy pumpkin than with a delicious bowl of Chia Pumpkin Overnight Oats? These oats are a tasty and effortless way to benefit from the powerful nutrients of pumpkin and chia. Top with our Cinnamon Pecan Chia Granola Clusters and you’ve got a Magical creation!
