Pumpkin overnight oats are such an easy breakfast for meal prep, so I came up with this fall-inspired oat recipe for you. Yep, I’m part of the “everything pumpkin once fall starts” club. The overnight oats use pumpkin pie spice for that familiar fall flavor and a bit of peanut butter for that little something special to tie it all together. If you don’t have pumpkin pie spice, you can use ground cinnamon to give it some extra flavor.
Overnight oats without fresh fruit will keep for about 3-5 days in the refrigerator. That time can be shortened if your milk expires sooner than that. Sunday night my family makes our oats for the work/school week. I reuse cleaned-out peanut butter jars with their lids. I line them up along with all of the ingredients and make a weekly batch for everyone in the house. Prep once, clean once, but breakfast for five days.
Tips and Toppings for Pumpkin Overnight Oats
The vegan overnight oats need to soak for at least 2 hours for the oats to absorb the liquid, but they get super creamy when left to soak overnight. If you like a thinner consistency add a little more plant-based milk before consuming. To make them fancy, add toasted pecans, dried cranberries, pepitas, chocolate chips, or coconut yogurt. For a healthier sweet treat, they’re also quite delicious with a dollop of sweetened coconut cream on top.
