Get your Fall flavor fix with these Pumpkin Overnight Oats! They’re sweet, creamy, and easy to meal prep for busy mornings!
It’s almost that time of year: Time for pumpkin EVERYTHING.
I’m hopelessly obsessed with pumpkin recipes. In fact, I try to keep a few cans in my pantry year-round so I can enjoy that fall flavor all the time.
For me, pumpkin is best in breakfasts and snacks. The best part is, they both happen to be easy to meal prep and eat from all week. If you struggle to find breakfast on busy mornings, you NEED meal prep for sure.
That’s where overnight oats come in! Not only are they an easy breakfast, they’re a great way to get in plenty of nutrients. And they’re super customizable!
These pumpkin overnight oats are creamy, sweet, and full of pumpkin flavor. You’ll definitely want to keep cans of pumpkin purée year round for this!

Benefits of overnight oats
Oats, in general, are a super healthy breakfast option. They’re heart-healthy thanks to their whole grains, and they’re high in fiber so you stay full longer.
They’re also a great meal prep option, because you can make a big batch of these at once and eat from them all week. Saving time and stress is WONDERFUL.
Never had overnight oats? This post explains the differences between cooked oats and overnight oatmeal!
What oats work best?
I use rolled oats, or old-fashioned oats, in pretty much all of my recipes. They’re a bit firmer than quick oats and have a better consistency. You can use quick oats, but the texture might be a little mushy.
Steel-cut oats aren’t recommended for this specific recipe. You CAN use steel cut oats in overnight oats, but it requires more liquid and more time to soften.
- Rolled oats
- Greek yogurt
- Pumpkin puree (Not pumpkin pie mix)
- Chia seeds
- Pure maple syrup
- Milk: Use your favorite dairy or non-dairy milk: Almond milk, cashew milk, coconut milk, oat milk, soy milk, etc.
- Maple syrup: Use honey or another favorite sweetener instead
- Spices: Use pumpkin pie spice!
- Chia seeds: You can omit this or use ground flaxseed instead.
- Protein powder: Vanilla would be amazing in this. Or find a brand that has a pumpkin spice flavor!
- Healthy fats: Add pumpkin seeds, peanut butter, almond butter, or others. Fats keep you full longer!
