Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

Late night baking calls for a healthy and quick, subsequent morning meal. Not that I wasn’t chowing down on Pumpkin Oatmeal Chocolate Chip Cookies right alongside this bowl of Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats… Regardless, I wanted something a little less butter and sugar-filled to be the base of my breakfast. With some leftover pumpkin from the cookies, I got to work creating this while the last batch of cookies were still baking away in the oven.

There’s not much to say about this bowl of oats other than that it’s a heavenly way to start your morning if you’re a pumpkin pie fan like me. If you’re not familiar with overnight oats, I have a bunch of other recipes that will introduce you to the make-ahead creation. Usually, my base is oats, soymilk and yogurt. For this one, I swapped the yogurt with pumpkin puree, making it my second ever vegan overnight oats recipe. The pumpkin add a creamy consistency equivalent to that of yogurt, and with the spices, brown sugar and walnuts, you’d be tricked into thinking this wasn’t much healthier than the previous night’s cookies you might pair alongside it. But oh it is, and equally delicious!

Serve with a dollop of plain soy yogurt if you’d like a tart component to compliment your pumpkin pie in a bowl.

Good morning pumpkin oats and pumpkin cookies. Yum.

    Ok, I might have to try this, but is it gummy in the morning? I’m imagining a gummy bowl of oats, which is what I made the last time I tried overnight oats. I wasn’t a fan. But I should try again, this sounds so tasty.

      I find it to be more creamy than it is gummy! I think the pumpkin over the yogurt even further enhances this.

    I saw this recipe last night while at the hair salon, and immediately made it. It was delicious for my breakfast. Not gonna lie…this was my first time eating and making overnight oats. My life is changed. I topped mine with peanut butter and raisins. Yum! Thanks for sharing!

    Amazing how such a wholesome breakfast could look so rich! I always have oatmeal for breakfast, but I only add cinnamon… A pumpkin variation sounds wonderful.
