Pumpkin Overnight Oats – Tastes Like a Pumpkin Spice Latte

Fall is almost here and you know what that means: pumpkin spice latte everything! It seems like the pumpkin flavors pop up earlier and earlier every year. But I’m not complaining. I love pumpkin.

Pumpkin truly tastes best when accompanied with pumpkin pie spice, with the warm flavors of cinnamon and nutmeg and their comforting aromas enhancing the earthy, natural sweetness of the pumpkin. But there is something about the slight smokiness of coffee that truly adds to this combination as well. 

This easy pumpkin overnight oats recipe has everything you love about a pumpkin spice latte and it’s also a healthy breakfast idea. It has a caffeinated kick from the coffee, heart-healthy nutrients from the oats, and pumpkin pie spice. It’s creamy, satisfying and good for you too! This easy meal prep breakfast is made with real pumpkin and tastes like a Starbucks PSL!

What is in a Pumpkin Spice Latte?

The classic PSL is made with the addition of a Pumpkin Spice Sauce added to the usual base of espresso and steamed milk. The Pumpkin Spice Sauce contains sugar, milk, pumpkin puree, and additional colors and flavors, including the traditional pumpkin spice flavor of cinnamon, nutmeg, and clove. The coffee drink is then topped with whipped cream and more pumpkin pie spice.

Now just combine all the essential flavor elements of the Starbucks favorite fall drink with the key components of overnight oats, but give everything a healthier upgrade to turn it into a nourishing and satisfying breakfast!

Ingredients

  • Chilled coffee: Leftover from the day before or you can use cold brew from a bottle or that you made yourself.
  • Milk: Dairy or non-dairy, such as almond milk or oat milk.
  • Pumpkin puree: Not the already-sweetenened pumpkin pie spice.
  • Plain Greek yogurt: You can also use vanilla, but you won’t need as much additional sweetener.
  • Pumpkin pie spice: Buy a bottle or make your own blend.
  • Vanilla extract
  • Sugar, honey, Stevia, or another sweetener
  • Chia seeds: This helps thicken yout oats.
  • Old fashioned oats: Certified gluten free, if needed.

How to Make Pumpkin Overnight Oats

They are really so simple to make. All of the details are in the recipe card, but for a quick overview, in a bowl or mason jar, stir together all of the ingredients except the oats. Then stir in the oats. Cover and store in the refrigerator at least overnight before enjoying. Stir before serving, adding additional milk, if needed.

How To Store Overnight Oats

As long as you used fresh ingredients (specifically the milk and yogurt), you can keep the pumpkin overnight oats in the fridge for several days if you like. Just be sure you store them in an airtight storage container or glass mason jars with tight-fitting lids.

Tips for Success

  • What kind of oats to use: Old fashioned rolled oats are recommended for overnight oatmeal, and not instant oats.
  • If you have leftover coffee: You can chill it in the fridge overnight, or use cold brew that you’ve made or bought in a bottle. Give yourself a little caffeine kick, or make it decaf – that’s totally up to you.
  • Adjust the spices: Some people may prefer just a hint of pumpkin pie spice, but others may want to add a bit more, which is why there is a range listed in the recipe.
  • Topping ideas: If you like a little texture, you can top your overnight oats with a few cacao nibs or mini chips or pepitas. Chocolate and pumpkin is a surprisingly delicious combination. Or give it a sprinkle of Maple Brown Sugar Granola.
  • Make it ahead: Overnight oats are the perfect meal prep breakfast. Make it in a mason jar and keep it in the fridge for several days.

Are Overnight Oats gluten free?

As long as you use certified gluten free oats, you should be good. However, I would recommend either making the pumpkin pie spice yourself (as single spices are nearly always gluten free), or be sure to use a brand that you know is gluten free.

Things You’ll Need

Brianne Recommends

I like to make overnight oats in the wide-mouth jelly jars. The amount in the recipe fits perfectly and they don’t take up too much space in the fridge if you make several at a time.

    Can quick oats be used instead of the old fashioned oats? Since I don’t care for coffee I think I’ll substitute vanilla chai tea.
