Ingredients for Pumpkin Overnight Oats
Oats – Choose large flake oats, often known as old-fashioned or rolled oats. They offer a nutty flavor and chewy texture. Other varieties of oats will work, but the texture will change. Quick oats can be used but will have a softer texture.
Pumpkin – Use homemade or canned pumpkin puree and add a little bit of pumpkin pie spice.
Dairy – Greek yogurt adds creaminess and protein. For a dairy-free twist, try coconut yogurt or cream. Feel free to use your preferred type of milk or dairy free milk such as almond milk.
- Feel free to substitute steel-cut oats for old-fashioned oats and add a bit of extra milk. Ensure they soak overnight, the texture will be a bit more chewy.
- Soaked chia seed makes a creamy pudding-like consistency, and in fact, chia is considered to be a healthy food. Ground flax seed can be added as well.
- Stir in a spoonful of almond, cashew, peanut, or seed butter for extra protein and flavor. Add in some frozen berries or top with some tasty baked apple slices. The sky is the limit when it comes to mix-ins!
- Sprinkle anything the heart desires on top of this delicious breakfast bowl. Hemp hearts for health, chopped candied pecans or mini chocolate chips. Swap pumpkin spice for apple pie spice or use your own mixture of cinnamon and ginger. Add in vanilla extract and some extra fruit like chopped apples, dried dates, raisins, or cranberries!

Pumpkin Overnight Oats
- 1 ⅓ cups rolled oats or large flake oats
- 2 tablespoons chia seeds
- 1 cup milk or non-dairy milk
- ⅔ cup yogurt or greek yogurt
- ⅔ cup canned pumpkin puree
- 1 ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- ½ teaspoon cinnamon
- ¼ cup maple syrup brown sugar, or honey, or more to taste
- ½ cup chopped pecans optional
- In a large bowl, mix together the rolled oats, chia seeds, milk, yogurt, pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and maple syrup (or brown sugar). Taste and add more sweetener if desired.
- Divide the mixture among four small mason jars or small containers. Seal tightly and refrigerate for at least 4 hours, or for best results, allow it to sit overnight.
- Garnish with whipped topping overnight if desired.
- Use flavored or unflavored yogurt. If using plain yogurt, add extra sweetener if desired.
- Large flaked oats or rolled oats work best for this recipe. Steel-cut oats work but will provide a different texture and need to be refrigerated for 2 days before eating.
- Chia seeds make the best texture in this recipe. If you don’t have chia seeds, substitute ground flax seeds, finely chopped nuts, or even oat bran. This will change the texture.
