I haven’t had much success with my own pumpkin oats so I need to make yours. I have a half of a can left so it will be happening soon. I am leaving for RI to go to my bf’s wedding this weekend! Can’t wait! Have a great weekend!

I love your pumpkin oats, they look delicious! Last night I made pumpkin banana bread and my house smells AMAZING!!!

No big plans for the weekend, dinner/movie tonight with Jason then the rest of the weekend will be filled with cleaning, organizing and relaxing :)


Clare September 24, 2010 at 12:02 pm

I’ve been waiting for a good recipe since my mish mash of spices and ingredients hasn’t been the best. It’s definitely on the docket to be made soon!! Thanks!


Justine September 24, 2010 at 1:29 pm

Those oats look divine! I randomly had overnight oats for breakfast this morning. I had nothing else but oats, almond milk, and a peach in the house, et voila! All I missed was the pumpkin. :)


TheHealthyApron September 24, 2010 at 1:30 pm

This is great! I made pumpkin oats this mornign too! instead of banana (I was out) I just added raisins+ oats + 1/2 c org. milk + 3 T pumpkin + pumpkin pie spice + cinnamon + dash of vanilla….= AMAZING!

ps. wrote a post today about WHY we need Rd’s….check it out!

Carolyn September 24, 2010 at 2:49 pm

I’ve been using homemade apple butter on my oats, too! It’s delish, especially with the pumpkin :)


Monet September 24, 2010 at 3:24 pm

Lovely recipe. Thank you for sharing it with me. I’ve yet to make overnight oats…and I don’t know why! I hope your Friday is full of laughter, love and joy!

Have a great weekend! My weekend will hopefully consist of lots of running, swimming, eating delicious food and simply relaxing after a hectic week!


Jen September 24, 2010 at 7:18 pm

Oh yum! I will have to try these. I actually just got some homemade pumpkin butter from a friend of mine so that might be even more pumpkin goodness!


Eating Bird Food September 24, 2010 at 10:18 pm

Pumpkin butter would be perfect! I almost used some of my homemade butter then I realized it was last year. haha ;)

that’s fall in a bowl ;)


Sarena (The Non Dairy Queen) September 24, 2010 at 11:08 pm

I haven’t gotten into overnight oats yet, but I love pumpkin oats and apple butter!


Jenna @ Healthy. Happy. Well. September 25, 2010 at 1:27 am

Goodness. That is autumn in a bowl.


Martha Lilian September 25, 2010 at 10:07 pm

Yummy! Where do you get the pumpkin pie spice? I’ve had my eye out and haven’t come across it anywhere.


Eating Bird Food September 26, 2010 at 12:23 am

I found it at Trader Joe’s!


jenny October 11, 2010 at 11:20 pm

i got some today at a QFC (like kroger)… it was a small container. you have to look hard. :)


Eating Bird Food October 11, 2010 at 11:25 pm

Thanks Jenny.


Catherine November 4, 2010 at 6:57 pm

I really enjoy pumpkin Overnight oats ! It tastes good and so smooth ! :)
(I have a little question, what does the “T” when you say “2 T canned pumpkin and 1 T vanilla protein powder ” ? Does it means tablespoons ?)
*Sorry if my english is not perfect, I’m from Quebec !!:D)


Eating Bird Food November 5, 2010 at 11:55 am

I’m glad you like the pumpkin overnight oats! Yes, T stands for Tablespoon and t stands for teaspoon. Hope that helps!


Catherine November 5, 2010 at 4:42 pm

Thanks ! :)


TiffanyS March 25, 2011 at 5:37 pm

Would whole grain quick oats work too? This sounds so scrumptious!


Eating Bird Food March 26, 2011 at 12:35 am

Hi Tiffany, quick oats don’t work well for overnight oats. You’ll want to use old fashioned rolled oats.


Danielle November 1, 2011 at 11:27 am

Do you think this would work with steel cut oats? Or does it need to be pumpkin? I’m tempted to also just try it with Muesli—can you tell I just want to use what’s in my cabinet at the moment?? =)


Eating Bird Food November 1, 2011 at 8:58 pm

Hi Danielle,

You definitely don’t have to use pumpkin so no worries about that. I don’t think steel cut oats would work as they wouldn’t soak up the liquid the way regular, old fashioned rolled oats do. But, muesli should work!

Hope that helps!


Danielle November 2, 2011 at 9:55 am

Thanks!! I ended up cooking the steel cut outs with pumpkin right in the pan – topped with cinnamon and crushed walnuts. Delicious! Thanks for the inspiration..


Deborah Rader August 14, 2012 at 11:00 pm

Can you use steel cut oats?


Deborah Rader August 14, 2012 at 11:02 pm

I guess I shoul look before I type…lol. I see your answer to Danielle’s SAME question. Love you website! :)


Eating Bird Food August 15, 2012 at 7:55 am

No problem. I’m glad you found your answer. :)
