While traveling for work, my husband has become an overnight oats connoisseur. Wanting something healthier with more protein to get him through the day than the hotel breakfast of wherever he is staying has lead him to becoming an expert at making overnight oats; a hearty, health breakfast that is also satisfying. It’s easy enough for him to make in hotel rooms on his extended stays with minimal ingredients and tools. And, it’s a routine I was all too happy he brought home and started making for the both of us to enjoy in the mornings. With these pumpkin pie overnight oats he hit it out of the park!
While you can use any flavors you want to make your overnight oats, I loved this Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats recipe he made and he was all too thrilled to share it with the world. It is really creamy and delicious, while the pumpkin and spices make it feel like a fall treat while actually being part of a balanced healthy breakfast. I love that it uses real pumpkin! So it’s not simply pumpkin pie spice flavored, but actually has pumpkin in it too!
Other flavor ideas are using flavored yogurt, such as blueberry or strawberry and adding in the same fruit. You can also increase the protein levels by adding in collagen peptides! Collagen peptides are tasteless and easily mix in which can add an additional 20 grams of protein to your overnight oats!Print
Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
These pumpkin pie overnight oats are the perfect combination to create a fall inspired creamy and delicious breakfast that is healthy too!
- Prep Time: 2 minutes
- Cook Time: 12 hours
- Total Time: 12 hours 2 minutes
- Yield: 1 Serving 1x
2/3 cup oats
2/3 cup milk of choice
1 tsp chia seeds
2–3 tbs pumpkin puree
1/4 cup yogurt of choice (or half a small yogurt container)
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
healthy drizzle of honey (optional – to taste)
Mix all ingredients in a pint size mason jar. I find the wide mouth jars work the best.
Put in the fridge overnight and enjoy cold or hot the next morning. You can make a couple day’s worth at once. They get better every day!
I suggest tasting your oat mixture before adding honey. Depending on if your yogurt has sweetener, you may find that you don’t need the honey. If you want to add more protein, add in collagen peptides which are tasteless and will boost the protein in the oats. To enjoy hot, microwave for one minute, stir, then microwave for one more minute.
