Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats Recipe

It's officially fall, and that means that we're celebrating all things pumpkin. Recipe developer Kit Hondrum of Kit's Kitchen seems to be on the same page, and she has just the thing to meet all of your pumpkin-y food desires: pumpkin pie overnight oats.

You've likely had oatmeal before, but have you heard of overnight oats? Well, let us introduce you! Overnight oats incorporate all of the wonderful heartiness of traditional oatmeal, but instead of cooking them in hot water or milk, you let them sit overnight (or for at least in the fridge. "I love how it tastes like a treat but it's actually healthy," Hondrum raves about this tasty dish. "Allowing everything to sit overnight allows you to skip the cooking process all-together. That's the beauty of overnight oats!" While there are plenty of ways you can spice up oats, like adding fruit, peanut butter, or chocolate chips, this recipe remains faithful to the flavor of pumpkin pie. So, without further ado, let's get right into this fall-themed dish!

Gather the ingredients to make pumpkin pie overnight oats

Who said that sweet stuff can't be healthy? Most of the ingredients for this pumpkin pie overnight oats recipe can be bought organic, in their purest form, for best results. To make a serving of overnight oats, you'll need some rolled oats, full-fat coconut milk (or a type that fits your preference), water, and some Greek yogurt, divided. Additionally, you'll need pumpkin puree and chia seeds. To achieve the fantastic flavor, bring in vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, and liquid stevia for sweetness. "I use SweetLeaf brand liquid stevia, which tends to be sweeter than other brands," Hondrum notes. "If using a different brand, you may need to add more sweetener to taste." Lastly, you'll need a few pinches of fine sea salt, some chopped walnuts, and you may add freshly ground nutmeg as garnish.

Start by mixing the ingredients

Place the oats, coconut milk, water, ¼ cup of Greek yogurt, pumpkin puree, chia seeds, vanilla extract, pumpkin pie spice, liquid stevia, and salt in a medium-sized mixing bowl or glass measuring cup. Mix until every ingredient well incorporated. We'll keep this as simple as possible. You may be wondering what the salt contributes to this recipe, and Hondrum explains that it plays a small but mighty role. "The salt cuts any bitterness you may get from the stevia and brings out the other flavors," she explains. "Just like how salt is in almost every dessert recipe!"

Pour the oats into a jar and refrigerate overnight

After you finish mixing up all of the ingredients, go ahead and pour the oat mixture into a glass jar. Now, the second to last step is to refrigerate the pumpkin pie overnight oats for at least four hours. This allows the oats to absorb the moisture and succulent flavors without cooking them. Optionally, this mix can chill overnight, which will help ensure that the oats soak up all of the pumpkin goodness. You can prep this the night before and wake up to a sweet, easy, and ready-to-go meal!

Enjoy the final result

Finally, you can top your oats with chopped walnuts, a tablespoon of yogurt, and a bit of ground nutmeg. If you're making bulk, using separate jars would be best. "You can even eat it on the go," Hondrum notes of the wonderful versatility of this dish.  This simple solution gives a new approach to "fast food". Just about any tupperware or glass jar will keep these oats fresh. "You can make it in any storage container with a lid, really," Hondrum says. "Even the disposable ziploc ones! Or just make it in a cereal bowl and cover with cling wrap." You can enjoy these scrumptious pumpkin pie overnight oats on your own or make a large batch of them for the family. Either way, we hope you love them like we do!
