Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats With Maple Pepitas

"These easy oats are cool yet comforting, And packed with fiber and essential vitamins and minerals, The candied pepitas add crunch, but feel free to skip them or the hemp seeds. although why you’d deny yourself a much-needed dose of omega-3s. Do NOT use quick cooking oats. They will dissolve into mush. Use old-fashioned rolled oats or steel cut oats. For those who don’t like coffee or are off the caffeine, replace the cold brew with extra almond milk."
