Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Have pumpkin pie for breakfast with this healthy pumpkin pie overnight oats recipe. It’s fast, easy, vegan, gluten-free and delicious!

I know most people enjoy overnight oats during the summer months and start back on warm oats in the fall, but I simply had to make a pumpkin overnight oats recipe. And you know what, it’s actually perfect for those early fall days when it’s still pretty hot outside, but you’re already starting to crave all things pumpkin.

Most of you probably know what overnight oats are, but just in case we have some newbies, here’s a simple explanation — overnight oats are simply plain rolled oats (not instant) that soak up liquid overnight in the fridge. You can use any type and combination of liquid/wet ingredients you like. My favorite is unsweetened vanilla almond milk, coconut milk and/or Greek yogurt.

For this particular batch I’m using almond milk and canned pumpkin for my wet ingredients. After letting the oats soak up the liquid overnight (or a few hours if you’re pressed for time) you’re ready to eat. You take the oats out of the fridge, give them a good stir, top with your favorite toppings and enjoy. There’s no cooking involved!

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

This particular overnight oat combo is one of my absolute favorites! I basically wait all year for it. Pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spices and almond milk give the oats a creamy texture and fall flavor that I love. If I’m craving more protein I’ll add a little protein powder or Greek yogurt to the mix but I don’t always find it necessary — especially if I’m adding pepitas (raw pumpkin seeds) and hemp seeds as a topping. The add ins and toppings are totally customizable so feel free to experiment with what works for you!

Ingredients Needed for Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

  • old fashioned rolled oats – rolled oats are the best for overnight oats. Instant/quick oats and steel cut oats don’t work the same because they don’t absorb liquid the same way rolled oats do
  • almond milk – I like using unsweetened vanilla almond milk, but any type of milk will work
  • canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • pumpkin pie spice
  • maple syrup – pure maple syrup is the perfect natural sweetener to use because it’s liquid so it blends in nicely with the oat mixture and I personally love the flavor. Honey or another natural liquid sweetener will work here. If you want to reduce the sugar in this recipe, feel free to use a sugar alternative like stevia or monk fruit
  • chia seeds – these little seeds add a bit of fiber, protein and omega-3 fatty acids and they help absorb some of the liquid which gives the oats a thicker consistency
  • sea salt – a pinch of sea salt is the perfect flavor enhancer and brings out the nutty flavor of the oats
  • cinnamon
  • hemp seeds
  • pepitas
  • optional: 1/2 scoop protein powder or 1/4 cup plain Greek yogurt for added protein

Eating something that tastes like pumpkin pie for breakfast is an amazing way to start the day. Seriously, you have to try it!

      I’ve seen overnight oatmeal recipes… and this one sounds yummy. So… do you eat them cold? I kinda like warm oatmeal and am not sure about cold.

      1. Brittany Mullins
        January 7, 2019 AT 10:26 am

        Yes! Typically you eat overnight oats cold, BUT if that doesn’t sound good you can always heat them up in the morning. Maybe try this recipe, give the cold oats a taste and if you don’t like it, heat them up. 🙂

      July 23, 2018 AT 11:33 am

      Can they be wormed up in the morning? Will it taste right? I prefer warm oatmeal but not if it’s going to “mess it up” ?

      Looks like we both had pumpkin pie on the brain for breakfast 🙂
      Love that you added in so much texture with those pepitas, hemp and chai seeds!

      These oats look so yummy – can’t wait to try them! Have dinner at Passions on the Beach if you have the time. The food and atmosphere was so wonderful – a meal highlight of our trip. If you return on a weekend day – be sure to get to the airport at least 3 hours early. You clear US Customs in Aruba and the lines are very long. Have a great trip!

        Thanks so much for all the suggestions Susan! We do come home on the weekend so we’ll make sure to get to the airport early.

      Where are you staying in Aruba? We were just there in July, we stayed at Bucuti and Tara and it was fabulous! I highly recommend going on one of the snorkeling tours- we went on a 3 stop catamaran one and it was amazing! We also went on a horseback tour to the Natural Pool which was great, so if you like/think you will like riding horses you may want to try it. There’s a great restaurant called the flying fishbone that you can sit with your feet in the water at sunset, fun and great food!

        We’re staying at the Divi Resort an it’s our first time so your suggestions are really helpful. I definitely think we’ll do a couple snorkeling trips and we’ll look into the horseback ride as well. Thank you!!

        Thank you, Beverley! I was so excited when I found this plate at Home Goods. 😛 I hope you get a chance to try the recipe!

      Finally was able to get on the overnight oats bandwagon by using steel cut instead of old-fashioned! Something about the cold texture got me. But I had something like this last week and LOVED it. So so good. #pumpkineverything #noshame 😉
      Have fun on your trip!

      1. Brittany Mullins
        October 5, 2015 AT 12:51 pm

        Yay! So happy you’re on-board with the overnight oats now. I’ve made them with steel cut oats before too and I really like the extra chewiness.
