An easy, healthy, absolutely scrumptious breakfast that can be thrown together the night before, and is ready when you are in the morning. This pumpkin pie overnight oatmeal is sure to spice up the most important meal of the day!
Thanksgiving is right around the corner, so I guess it’s a good thing I’m still crazy for pumpkin everything. With all of the pumpkin dessert baking; I’m sure many of you will have plenty of leftover pumpkin puree. You’ll love this easy, yummy breakfast recipe- perfect for not wasting any of that lovely pumpkin deliciousness.
Most mornings, I’m pressed for time and always rushing out the door… who isn’t? This pumpkin pie overnight oatmeal works great as a grab-n-go breakfast that I can enjoy at work and/or my kiddos can eat on the way to school. And oatmeal is always my preferred breakfast because I stay satisfied right up until lunch.
If you’re looking for a breakfast treat, without actually eating pumpkin pie, this oatmeal is your answer! Plus, pumpkin is so good for you- full of alpha-carotene, vitamins C and E, beta-carotene, fiber, potassium, magnesium and pantothenic acid. There’s your excuse to eat your morning pumpkin pie- as if you needed one!
- ⅓ cup old-fashioned rolled oats (gluten-free, if needed)
- ⅓ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk (any milk works)
- ⅓ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- ⅓ cup plain or vanilla Greek yogurt
- ½-1 tablespoon Chia seeds (optional, but works well to thicken the oatmeal)
- ½ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice or cinnamon
- ½ teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
- desired sweetener- I used 2 packets Stevia. 2-3 teaspoons honey or maple syrup would work well, too.
- optional toppings- raisins, craisins, shredded coconut, granola, seeds, nuts, nut butter
- Combine all ingredients, except toppings, in a small bowl or jar with a lid. I love using an almost empty jar of almond butter and the smaller mason jars.
- Cover and refrigerate overnight, or at least 4 hours.
- Enjoy cold or gently warmed in the microwave. Sprinkle with desired toppings and additional milk, as desired. I like to take my oatmeal out of the fridge about 10-20 minutes before I'm ready to eat. It's chilled, but not super cold.
- It works great to make several servings at once, to enjoy throughout the week. Prepared oatmeal cups will keep well for about 5 days in the fridge.
