Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
These pumpkin pie overnight oats are your easiest breakfast ever! They require only 5 minutes of prep and they’re delicious, filling, and so nutritious.
Oatmeal is my jam. Well, not literally jam—that would be strawberry jam—but I could eat it every single day of the week. In fact, once I went about three months with nothing but oatmeal for breakfast. Why? Well, you can customise it with anything your heart desires so it never gets old!
When fall rolls around, these pumpkin pie overnight oats are a natural choice. They’re full of cozy autumn flavors and they literally take just five minutes to make, and all the work is done the night before. Which means if you’re in a rush to get out of the house in the morning, you no longer have no excuse for not grabbing breakfast!
Why You’ll Love This Pumpkin Overnight Oats Recipe
Here’s what makes these pumpkin pie overnight oats a fabulous fall breakfast:
- Super easy to make. Just like my Pumpkin Pie Chia Pudding, you mix it up and forget about it until morning. No standing over the stove for half an hour to make breakfast!
- Nutrient-dense ingredients. Oats, almond milk, nuts, and pumpkin puree are all loaded with vitamins, minerals, and fiber to fuel you through your morning.
- Perfectly sweet. Those instant oatmeal packets are convenient, but they’re also loaded with sugar. Pumpkin overnight oats are sweetened with just a touch of maple syrup, and you can adjust the amount as needed.
- Customisable. Make this recipe your own with add-ins like granola, nuts, or fruit. I share some ideas below!
Notes on Ingredients
Scroll down to the recipe card to find the ingredient quantities and recipe instructions.
- Pumpkin puree – Store-bought or homemade pumpkin puree both work.
- Old-fashioned or rolled oats – These have the perfect texture for overnight oats.
- Almond milk – Or your go-to unflavoured or vanilla plant milk.
- Pumpkin spice
- Maple syrup
- Candied pecans – These are optional, but they add some crunch and extra sweetness.
What Is the Difference Between Pumpkin Filling and Pumpkin Puree?
Pumpkin filling (sometimes also labeled as pumpkin pie mix) usually contains sugar and spices, whereas pumpkin puree is literally just pumpkin. For this recipe you’ll need to use pumpkin puree, so make sure to read the label closely when purchasing your can.
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
Here’s what you’ll need to do to make this easy vegan breakfast:
- Combine. Stir together the ingredients in a jar and cover it.
- Refrigerate. Place the jar in the refrigerator overnight.
- Heat. Overnight oats can be enjoyed chilled, or you can empty the jar into a small pan set over medium heat or pop it in the microwave for 45 seconds.
- Finish. Add your desired toppings and enjoy.
Tips for Success
These additional pointers will help you make the perfect bowl of pumpkin overnight oats.
- Allow the oats to soak overnight. This is the key step in making sure your oats are properly softened. You really can’t rush the process!
- Adjust the consistency. If your oats come out too thick, add another tablespoon of almond milk and stir to combine.
- Make it less pumpkin-y. The flavour we often associate with pumpkin is really the spices we pair it with, so if you’d like, you can add less pumpkin for a thinner consistency without sacrificing that cozy spiced flavour. You can add as little as two tablespoons.
- Swap out the maple syrup. Date syrup or agave nectar are two natural alternatives to maple syrup, or you can use liquid stevia if you’d like.
You can be as creative as you like with your toppings. Here are some ideas:
- Chopped nuts or seeds, like almonds, walnuts, cashews, chia, hemp, and sunflower seeds.
- Dark chocolate chips or chopped dark chocolate.
- Dairy-free yogurt or my Homemade Vegan Yogurt.
- Coconut flakes or shredded coconut.
- Dried fruit like raisins or cranberries. Crumbled apple chips would be delicious too!
- Fresh fall fruit like diced apples or pears.
- A drizzle of almond butter.
- Granola for extra crunch. Try my Pumpkin Granola recipe.
- A dollop of Coconut Whipped Cream.
How to Store
Pumpkin pie overnight oats can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 5 days, which makes them a fantastic option for meal prep breakfasts.
Can I Freeze This Recipe?
Yes, you can freeze leftover pumpkin pie overnight oats in an airtight container or freezer bag. When ready to eat, thaw the overnight oats in the refrigerator and then enjoy chilled or heated.
