Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

If you’re looking for an easy fall breakfast recipe that takes less than a minute to meal prep, this is it my friend, this is it.

Pumpkin spice overnight oats are a creamy and delicious gluten free way to begin your day. They’re high in protein and fiber so they’ll keep you full for hours.

Ingredients for Pumpkin Overnight Oats

  • Rolled oats. Rolled oats are always best in overnight oats (aka large flaked oats or old fashioned oats in Canada), but if you only have quick oats they will also work.
  • Unsweetened almond milk. You can use whatever milk you have on hand. If you’re using a nut milk like cashew milk or coconut milk make sure it’s unsweetened.
  • Plain Greek yogurt. 0% unsweetened Greek yogurt is high in protein and makes these pumpkin pie overnight oats delicious and creamy.
  • Pumpkin puree. You’ll want to use pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. This is just the pumpkin, blended, which allows us to add your own spices and sweetener.
  • Pure maple syrup. This will be your sweetener.
  • Chia seeds. Chia seeds are a powerhouse. These tiny seeds have a lot of protein and fiber for such a small serving.
  • Pumpkin pie spice. This spice makes me think of fall and it smells amazing.
  • Vanilla protein powder. Use whatever protein powder you have, I like to use Vanilla but if you have a cinnamon roll or even a sugar cookie flavor that would taste delicious.
  • Pumpkin seeds. Pumpkin seeds are also called pepitas and are a healthy topping option for this meal prep breakfast recipe.

Recipe Variations and Swaps

Can I use different milk for overnight oats?

Yes. Use whatever milk you have on hand, it will just change the nutritional information a bit.

What toppings can I put on pumpkin spice overnight oats?

I like to top it with extra cinnamon, maybe some crushed pecans, pumpkin seeds, and a tiny bit of whipped cream (or coconut whip) every once in a while.

What sweetener can I use with overnight oats?

This recipe uses maple syrup. You can use honey or a monk fruit blend in place (brown sugar Swerve is amazing). lf you would like it sweeter, you can add more.

What can I substitute for chia seeds in oats?

You can use ground flaxseed instead.

What can I substitute pumpkin pie spice with?

You can simply use cinnamon. Pumpkin pie spice is a blend of cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, allspice, and cloves but since this recipe uses so little you can just use cinnamon.

How to store overnight oats

I recommend using wide mouthed mason jars with the reusable plastic lids. It takes up less room in your fridge and they’re easy to wash.

You can also use simple meal prep containers or bowls and wrap them before you chill in the fridge.

How long do overnight oats keep in the fridge?

You can keep overnight oats in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, but the texture does get a little mushier after the third day.

Can you heat overnight oats?

If you prefer warm oats, you can pop it into the microwave and heat it up. Be sure to give the oats a good stir every 30 seconds or so.

Nutrition Information

What I love about overnight oats for breakfast is that they start your day with a boost of protein and fiber, which means that you’ll stay fuller for longer (no sugar spikes).

They’re portable so you can eat them at the table, at work, or on your commute (as long as you’re not driving, obviously).

There are 418 calories in this recipe and the macros are:

  • 52g carbohydrates
  • 34g protein
  • 9g fat
  • 12g fiber

You can lower the calories by substituting maple syrup for monk fruit sweetener (I like Swerve’s brown sugar blend) and depending on how your day is looking you could probably reduce the oats to 1/4 cup.

Play around with the recipe and make it work for your healthy goals. It’s a great breakfast macro recipe.

    1. I believe the ones I use are 500mls. Use that or anything larger, definitely use a wide mouth jar so you can put your spoon inside.
