These Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats are your easiest breakfast ever! They require only 5 minutes of prep and are delicious, filling and so nutritious!
This is a sponsored conversation written by me on behalf of my favourite almond milk Silk Almondmilk! All opinions and text are 100% mine.
Oatmeal is my jam. Well, not literally jam, that would be strawberry jam, but I don’t think I’ve had a meal more than oatmeal as a fact. I actually once went about three months with nothing but oatmeal for breakfast. Why? Well, you can customise it to anything your heart desires.
Spring? Have oatmeal topped with strawberries or carrot cake oatmeal. Summer? Mango (amazing) oatmeal. Fall? Have pumpkin pie overnight oats. It’s that simple. It sounds insane but these pumpkin pie overnight oats really do take only 5 minutes to prep.
You need to try this.
There are so many things to say about this oatmeal but point blank: it’s a fall staple. Overnight oats seems to be all the rage and for good reason – if you’re running out of the house in the morning you no longer have no excuse for not grabbing breakfast.
It’s as simple as mixing your oatmeal ingredients together, and putting it in the fridge in a jar. The oats absorb the milk overnight just like they would in a hot pan over medium heat, and leave a beautiful thickened breakfast just waiting for you.
The ingredients in this pumpkin pie overnight oats are pretty simple too. I use my favourite, Silk Almondmilk (p.s. are you seeing that new packaging? I am totally swooning), oats, pumpkin pie spice, pumpkin puree, and organic maple syrup to contribute to that pumpkin pie taste and sweeten it up. I also add candied pecans (recipe coming soon!) which just ties it all together.
The best part about this recipe is that it’s 100% customisable. You can add more or less almond milk if you like, different spices such as nutmeg, and more or less pumpkin. It’s totally up to you and your taste buds.
I also topped these pumpkin pie overnight oats with some pumpkin spice granola which added even more delicious texture and lets you feel like you’re having dessert for breakfast even though it’s just all wholesome, delicious ingredients. Every ingredient used contributes it’s own magic, to the point that I’m trying to figure out why I don’t have overnight oats more often!
Silk Almondmilk is my #1 almond milk choice, and it’s perfect if you have allergies, are vegan or just want to keep everything plant based. It also adds protein and lots of calcium to your meal. The pumpkin adds tons of great fibre, vitamin A and protein. Pumpkin spice adds lots of great flavour, oats add protein and fibre and the organic maple syrup is healthy and adds some delicious sweetness. All in all, you have a great wholesome plant-based breakfast that tastes like dessert. That’s considered a real win in my books, don’t you think?
