Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats ingredients
- Oats: make sure to use rolled oats or quick oats when making overnight oats. Rolled oats will give the overnight oats a chewy and nutty texture and quick oats will give them a softer and fluffier texture. (Rolled oats are the way to go in my opinion.)
- Chia seeds: these not only add nutrition to the overnight oats, but they help absorb liquid and make the overnight thicken.
- Pumpkin spice: I use store-bought pumpkin pie spice for this recipe, but you could also make your own if you prefer.
- Salt: just a pinch to balance the flavours.
- Yogurt: I use greek yogurt in mine, but you can use any type of plain yogurt you like. If you want to keep the recipe dairy-free use vegan yogurt.
- Pumpkin pureé: make sure to use pumpkin pureé and not pumpkin pie filling. Pumpkin pie filling is loaded with sugar and other ingredients.
- Maple syrup: for some sweetness. You could also use honey, brown sugar or any other sweetener you love.
- Almond milk: you can use any dairy or non-dairy milk.
- Vanilla extract: just a splash for flavour.
How to make Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
Mix the oats, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice and salt together in a large mixing bowl. Then add the yogurt, pumpkin pureé, maple syrup, vanilla extract and almond milk.
Stir the ingredients together until well combined. Then cover the bowl and place it in the fridge overnight to set or for a minimum of 4 hours.
Make it high-protein: add a scoop of your favourite protein powder to the overnight oats. I recommend using either unflavored or vanilla protein powder for this recipe.
Make it vegan: swap out the yogurt for non-dairy yogurt. If you can’t find non-dairy yogurt you can also use coconut cream off the top of a can of full-fat coconut milk.
Make it gluten-free: while many oats are gluten-free, some oats technically aren’t gluten-free certified if you have a gluten allergy. If this is the case make sure to use gluten-free certified rolled oats.
There are so many different toppings you can add to your overnight oats! Here are some of my favourites.
- Greek yogurt
- Pumpkin pie spice
- Hemp seeds
- Flax seeds
- Drizzle of nut butter
- Cacao nibs
- Dark chocolate chips
How to store pumpkin overnight oats
Store these pumpkin pie overnight oats in an airtight container or sealed jar in the fridge for up to 4 days. You can also double the recipe and store the oats in individual small jars so you can take them on the go with you.
Tips for making this recipe perfectly
- Use rolled oats for a chewy texture. This is my preferred texture when it comes to overnight oats. You can also use quick oats, however, I find rolled oats give a nicer texture.
- No pumpkin pie spice? Make your own. Mix together 1 tbsp of cinnamon, 1 tsp ground ginger, 1 tsp nutmeg, 1/4 tsp allspice and 1/4 tsp cloves. Use some of the spice mix for this recipe and save the rest for something else.
- Store the oats in jars. Use a large mason jar, or these weck canning jars to store the overnight oats.
Overnight oats FAQ
Yes! Overnight oats make a healthy and delicious breakfast that is packed with whole grains, fibre and protein.
Chia seeds are very absorbent and help to soak up some of the liquid in the overnight oats to give the oats a thick and creamy consistency. Chia seeds also have many nutritional benefits that are great for you!
Rolled oats (also called large flake oats) are best for overnight oats to give them a chewy texture. You can also use quick oats if you prefer a softer texture.
