Types of oats you can use
This recipe can be made with quick oats, rolled oats or even steel-cut oats.
I use rolled oats because I like their nutty chewy texture, but they cook up much quicker than steel-cut oats. If you have more time in the morning, you can use steel-cut oats in this recipe (which will take 15-20 minutes to cook) and just add some extra liquid to the oats. (refer to the package directions on your steel-cut oats for oats to liquid ratio.)
If you’re in a rush and want this recipe ready even quicker, you can use quick oats or instant oats, which will take just a couple of minutes to cook.
Ingredients you’ll need
- Oat milk: to keep it in the oat theme. I love oat milk becuase it’s creamier than some other plant based milks. But you can use any type of milk you like.
- Water: to cook the oats.
- Pumpkin Puree: not pumpkin pie filling. Just pure pumpkin.
- Oats: I use rolled oats, you can use any type you like.
- Pumpkin pie spice: store-bought, or homemade
- Coconut sugar: or brown sugar.
How to make this recipe into overnight oats
Overnight oats are oats that you can prepare in a jar the night before so they’re ready to enjoy in the morning. They can also be enjoyed hot or cold.
You can make this recipe into overnight oats by using equal part oats and oat milk, and use slightly less pumpkin (1/4 cup). you can also add in some yogurt of choice and a tbsp of chia seeds.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- For the best texture, I recommend using rolled oats over quick oats. If you have more time to let the oatmeal cook, you can also use steel cut oats
- If you like your oatmeal thicker, you can simply let it cook down on the stovetop for a couple more minutes. If you prefer it thinner, you can cook it slightly less, or add slightly more oat milk.
