Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats are the perfect way to enjoy the flavors of your favorite fall pie for breakfast! Make these creamy pumpkin spiced oats the night before and have a delicious, healthy breakfast waiting for you in the morning!
It’s finally fall and I’m not sure how I feel about that. I love summer in Colorado so much and it’s always hard to see it end. However, if I had to pick my second favorite season it would be fall. The leaves are changing color, it’s a little cooler, but not cold, and it’s the start of fall cooking and baking.
Since it’s not exactly cold here, yet, I thought these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats were there perfect way to enjoy a seasonal breakfast without turning on the oven. On weekend morning when it’s cooler and I have extra time, I love to make this Pumpkin Apple Baked Oatmeal. During the week when I’m in a hurry, pumpkin pie overnight oats are a quick breakfast that’s ready to go and really hits the spot!
Ingredients Needed for Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
- Rolled Oats, gluten-free if needed
- Pumpkin purée, make sure it’s purée and not pie filling
- Plain Greek yogurt
- Maple syrup
- Vanilla extract
- Chia seeds
- Pumpkin pie spice and ground cinnamon
How to Make Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
In a large bowl whisk together the pumpkin purée, Greek yogurt, milk, maple syrup and vanilla. When it’s combined, add in the oats, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. Stir everything together then divide it into two bowls or jars. Cover with lids or plastic wrap and refrigerate until thick and creamy. Add your favorite topping if desired.
Toppings for Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
- Toasted pecans or walnuts
- Almond butter, peanut butter or sunflower butter. My favorite is almond butter. I like to use one that’s runnier like this maple almond butter or creamy almond butter. I use about a tablespoon, which makes the oats a little heartier with the protein and fat.
- Dried fruit such as, raisins or cranberries
- Fresh fruit such as, diced apples or blueberries
- Extra maple syrup and cinnamon
Do I Have to Make Overnight Oats the Night Before?
No. Overnight oats only need 3-4 hours before they’ve softened and absorbed enough of the liquid to be ready to eat. This is great if you want them for an afternoon snack. Simply make them in the morning and they’ll be ready later that day.
How Long Will Overnight Oats Last in the Refrigerator?
Overnight oats will last 4-5 days in an airtight container in the refrigerator. The oats will get softer the longer they are in there, which is a good thing if you like yours extra creamy. There may be some separation of liquid the longer they are in there, but give them a quick stir and they’ll be good as new.
