Overnight oats are the perfect meal for busy mornings, because you do all the prep work before going to bed at night. When you wake up, your oats are ready to eat … so simple and delicious!
Before my sister’s next visit, I wanted to come up with a fall-inspired recipe that we could enjoy together. Of course, I immediately thought of pumpkin. I can never get enough at this time of year.
And this easy Pumpkin Oatmeal was the result! This yummy recipe pairs pumpkin flavored oats with fragrant pie spices, creamy yogurt, and crunchy pecans. It’s bursting with warm, seasonal flavors that I know you’re going to love … keep reading for the easy recipe.
How to Make Pumpkin Overnight Oats
These Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats couldn’t be easier to make, so let’s get started!
You’ll need a few jars or bowls with lids. I used these adorable jam jars which have a cute fruit print. The petite jars were the perfect size for this recipe, but if you’re planning to experiment with different overnight oats recipes, keep in mind that pint size jars are better for recipes with more voluminous toppings, like fruit.
Once you have your jars, it’s simply a matter of combining the ingredients: oats, milk (use whole or 2% milk for the best results), pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and a pinch of salt.
I also added a custom mix of spices to flavor the oats, but if you’d prefer, you can use pumpkin pie spice for a similar taste.
Tip: to make this recipe vegan, simply use your favorite plant-based milk (I like almond or coconut) and yogurt.
Serving the Oats
After refrigerating your oats overnight, top each serving with chopped pecans for extra flavor and texture, plus a dollop of creamy vanilla yogurt.
Sprinkle on a little cinnamon if you’re feeling fancy, and feel free to add extra maple syrup if you’d like your overnight oats with milk a little sweeter. You could even add a sprinkle of Roasted Pumpkin Seeds!
I usually enjoy my Pumpkin Overnight Oats straight from the refrigerator, but if you’re craving a warm breakfast, heat them up in the microwave before serving. And the jars make this breakfast perfect for eating on the go, too. Just grab a spoon and you’re all set.
Storing the Oats
This delicious cold oatmeal will last for a few days in the refrigerator, so make a big batch to enjoy with your family all week long!
