Culinary Tips for Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Want to make breakfast for the entire week or for the whole family? To speed up prep time, make a big batch in a bowl, then divide into individual servings.

Toast the peptias on the stovetop or purchase toasted peptias for best flavor.

Ingredient Substitutions

  • Oats: use old-fashioned or quick oats. Old-fashioned oats create a firm, chewy texture; quick oats create a soft, mushy texture. Do not use steel cut oats, as these have to be cooked for optimal digestion.
  • Milk: use regular or dairy-free milk. Don’t have milk? You can also make overnight oats with water, but they won’t taste as creamy.
  • Pumpkin: substitute canned or mashed sweet potato or butternut squash.
  • Greek Yogurt: substitute regular plain yogurt. Choose a fat content that works with your overall diet. Choose sugar-free varieties and sweeten to your taste. To make your overnight oats vegan, leave out the yogurt or substitute a plant-based yogurt.
  • Maple Syrup: substitute agave, brown sugar, or honey. You can also use jam, juice, or pureed fruit in place of sweetener.
  • Cinnamon: substitute any variety of sweet spices – allspice, cardamom, cinnamon, cloves, ginger, nutmeg, or pumpkin pie spice.
  • Pepitas (pumpkin seeds): substitute sunflower seeds or toasted slivered almonds.

Recipe Variations

Feel free to add other mix-ins or toppings: fresh fruit, chia seeds, flax seeds, coconut flakes, cocoa powder, nut butter, flavor extracts, etc.

Pumpkin Overnight Oats are a Healthy Breakfast

The first meal of the day can affect how you feel for the rest of the day. A balanced breakfast should contain complex carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. The featured ingredients in this healthy overnight oats recipe are oats, Greek yogurt, and pumpkin. This recipe also contains natural sweetener, but far less than many breakfast cereals.

Oats

Oats are a whole grain and are a good source of fiber and complex carbohydrates. Fiber is important for digestion, satiety, stable blood sugar, good cholesterol, and healthy gut bacteria. Complex carbohydrates are important for steady energy and focus. (1, 2)

Greek Yogurt

Making overnight oats with Greek yogurt creates a creamy texture and taste. Plus, it adds a nutritional boost! Greek yogurt is a great source of protein, calcium, and gut-friendly probiotics.

Pumpkin

Pumpkin puree is a great source of antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals – important for digestion, steady energy, and metabolism.

Less Sugar than Breakfast Cereal

Many breakfast cereals contain large amounts of added sugars that don’t support health. By making refrigerator oats, you get to control the amount of added sugar that you eat!

Serving Suggestions

Overnight oats aren’t just for breakfast! They can also be a great snack or post-workout treat.

Serve hot or cold.

How to Store Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Store overnight oats in the refrigerator. They’ll be ready to eat the next morning but can be stored for up to one week. The longer the oats are held in the refrigerator, the mushier they will become.
