Ingredients for Pumpkin Overnight Oats

Pumpkin Overnight Oats Ingredients

Specific measurements are in the recipe card at the bottom of this post. Here is what you’ll need to make these overnight oats:

  • Greek yogurt: (I love vanilla Greek Yogurt)
  • Milk: (unsweetened almond milk, or your preference)
  • Pumpkin puree: choose pure pumpkin puree over pumpkin pie mix
  • Maple syrup
  • Vanilla extract
  • Rolled oats
  • Pumpkin pie spice: (see note on substituting spices)
  • Cinnamon

Ingredient Notes

As mentioned, one of the things I love about overnight oats is the ability to customize it for dietary and flavor preferences. Here are a few ideas:

Yogurt: Greek Yogurt will need additional protein and less sugar to the overnight oats. But regular yogurt works good too. My preference is vanilla Greek Yogurt.

Milk: Nonfat milk, unsweetened almond milk, or your milk preference.

Spices: If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice on hand, substitute:

  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cloves

How to Make Vegan Overnight Oats

To make overnight oats vegan, substitute plant-based milk and plant-based yogurt.

How to Store Overight Oats

Store these pumpkin overnight oats in an airtight container (like lidded mason jars) for up to 5 days in the refrigerator.

Just before serving, give them a good stir and add a splash of milk if needed, and top with your favorite toppings.

I love to make overnight oats on Sunday evenings and have nutrition, easy breakfast ready for the week.
