Pumpkin Overnight Oats

A healthy overnight oats recipe with thick, creamy texture and warm and cozy pumpkin spice flavor. It’s full of fiber and rich in protein, made with whole grain rolled oats, canned pumpkin purée, almond milk, Greek yogurt, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup for a touch of sweetness.

I’ve always enjoyed overnight oats but I love them even more now that I have a newborn and a 2 year old to chase after. My mornings are busier than ever but these pumpkin overnight oats are the easiest way for me to ensure I’m having a healthy, filling breakfast (rather than standing at the sink eating the leftover bites of my toddler’s breakfast) no matter what chaos ensues.

The brilliance of overnight oats is that you make them the night before you plan to eat them and there’s zero cooking involved (and therefore very little cleanup). The oats soften and puff up as they soak in the milk and yogurt while the chia seeds thicken the mixture into a pudding-like consistency.

My pumpkin overnight oats recipe makes a single serving that can easily be doubled or tripled, which is why it’s a great make ahead breakfast. AND you can prepare it in 5 minutes! Feel free to use whatever milk (dairy or nondairy) and yogurt you want (vanilla yogurt works well here), and to swap quick oats for old fashioned oats.

How to Make Pumpkin Overnight Oats

In a small bowl, stir together old fashioned oats, Greek yogurt, almond milk, chia seeds, pumpkin purée, pumpkin pie spice, and maple syrup. Cover and refrigerate it overnight and in the morning, you’ll have a thick and creamy bowl of pumpkin pie flavored oatmeal. You can top it with whatever you like, but I recommend chopped pecans, a dusting of ground cinnamon, and more maple syrup (if desired).

    The milk we get from our Nigerian Dwarf Goats is fresh, sweet & has very high butterfat. It is awesome for making soft cheeses and for baking into Quiche, pudding, waffles, and anything asking for milk. Off-tasting goat milk is usually caused by the way it is handled. All equipment must be sterile and milk needs to be chilled immediately

    I made the recipe, and enjoyed the oats this morning. Mine didn’t come out quite as nice looking, what is the white dollop on top of yours?

    I have so much trouble finding good oats! I have found only one organic brand at a major grocery chain that I like. I never used to think about what brand is best and now this problem runs my life.
