If you’re looking for the perfect breakfast that’s filled with fall flavours then look no further than these Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats! It’s an easy and healthy vegan breakfast recipe that will keep you feeling full and satisfied for hours. Plus, it’s made with wholesome ingredients, yet tastes exactly like pumpkin pie! What could be better?!
This time of year, I love incorporating fresh pumpkin into my cooking. It’s chalked full of amazing health benefits, and can be enjoyed in so many ways (both sweet and savoury!). So once you’ve indulged in these creamy overnight oats, try my Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal, Savoury Oatmeal with Squash and Pepita, and these Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Cookies for dessert. The options really are endless!
I’m often asked what type of oats to use in my recipes. There are so many different types of oats, and it can be confusing to know which variety you need. And while it’s possible to make Overnight Steel Cut Oats, my favorite oats to use in this Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats recipe (and most of my Classic Overnight Oats!) is rolled oats.
Rolled oats have a perfectly chewy, soft texture, after soaking overnight and make the creamiest overnight oats.
My oats brand of choice is One Degree Organic Foods’ Sprouted Rolled Oats. In addition to being the perfect oats in Baked Oatmeal Recipes, they’re my go-to oats for making overnight oats. They’re not only organic, but certified gluten-free, and sprouted, which means One Degree Organic oats nutrients are healthier than regular oats.
This is because sprouting makes the vitamins and nutrients more bioavailable. Plus, they’re higher in insoluble fiber, which means it’s much easier to digest! For more details on the benefits of sprouted oats, check out this informative post: What is Sprouting and Why Does it Matter?
I love supporting One Degree Organic Foods because of their 100% transparency in production process from their farm to your table. You can even scan the QR code on each package to find out about the farmers who made your oats! Like, how cool is that? And they are completely transparent about their testing practices to ensure that their oats are one of the cleanest, if not the cleanest out there.
One Degree Organic Foods believes in sustainable farming practices and 100% organic ingredients. All-in-all, I love the initiative of this company for creating oats that taste good, and that are good for you, the farmer, and the planet.
As mentioned above, One Degree Organic Foods have sponsored this blog post. I only work with companies that I know and love.
In addition to quality rolled oats, you’ll need just 9 simple ingredients to make these pumpkin overnight oats.
If you’ve made any of my overnight oat recipes, you’ll know how quick and simple it is!
In a medium-sized mixing bowl, combine the oats, chia seeds, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and pumpkin seeds. Whisk to combine.
Then, pour in the almond milk, coconut yogurt, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. Whisk very well to ensure the chia seeds are fully combined and there is no clumping!
Tip! To avoid dry and clumpy pumpkin overnight oats, it can be helpful to whisk the mixture once, let it sit for 5 to 10 minutes, then mix again to help break up any clumps or dry spots that have formed before storing to soak overnight.
Cover and refrigerate for at least 20 minutes (preferably overnight!). When the oats are ready, they should have thickened into a porridge like consistency.
Finally, divide the pumpkin overnight oats between two bowls or cups and decorate with toppings of choice!
I personally love these pumpkin pie overnight oats topped with a dollop of coconut yogurt and chopped pecans, but don’t be afraid to get creative! These pumpkin oats can be enjoyed with a number of delicious toppings, including but not limited to:
Overnight oats are meant to be enjoyed cold! These chilled pumpkin overnight oats are one of my favourite breakfast recipes to enjoy during the beginning of fall and pumpkin season when the weather is still warm from the end of summer. It’s the perfect cooling recipe that still allows me to enjoy delicious pumpkin recipes.
Pumpkin overnight oats can be heated until warm the next day, but if you prefer warm oats, I might suggest trying one of cozy oatmeal recipes, such as these 7 Easy and Delicious Oatmeal Recipes that Actually Taste Good!
It is said that overnight oats can be slightly more nutritional than cooked oatmeal because cooking oats can cause some of the nutrients to be lost. Since overnight oats are completely heat-free, they may retain their nutrients and health benefits better. However, the nutrients that are lost during the cooking process are very slight, meaning oatmeal is still very healthy and filled with wonderful health benefits.
Pumpkin oats can be made in advance and stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 3 days. It’s the perfect recipe to meal prep on Sundays for busy mornings. Don’t be afraid to double or triple the recipe and make a big batch that will feed the whole family!
Tip! If you are planning on preparing these pumpkin overnight oats for breakfast on-the-go, divide the oats between mason jars that you can easily take with you the next morning.
