There are endless options for changing the flavor of overnight oats. And this recipe is one of my favorites to switch up my overnight oats game. Pumpkin pie overnight oats are just perfect if you love all things pumpkin and fall time! They are creamy, flavorful and taste like a super delicious piece of pumpkin pie.

They are that yummy!
Pumpkin pie overnight oats are made with the ingredients you need for classic overnight oats plus some special ingredients. These are the ingredients you need:
- Rolled oats. You definitely need rolled oats to make overnight oats. They have a different texture than instant/quick oats when they are soaked over night, so make sure you have rolled oats to make these pumpkin pie overnight oats.
- (Plant-based) milk. You can use any kind of milk. I love using almond milk.
- Pumpkin puree. I used canned pumpkin to make these overnight oats.
- Greek yogurt. You could skip the yogurt, but I recommend using it. When I make classic overnight oats, I sometimes skip it. But it goes very well with the pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, so it is a must for this recipe!
- Chia seeds. They are great for texture and are packed with nutrients, so I recommend using them.
- Maple syrup or honey. Or any other sweetener of choice. You can also skip the sweetener if you prefer it this way.
- Pumpkin pie spice.
- Toppings. I love using nuts, nut butters, hemp seeds, cacao nibs, berries and other kinds of fruits. You could also top the pumpkin pie overnight oats with coconut whipped cream. Feel free to be creative!

Overnight oats are just so easy to prepare. That’s why they are my go-to breakfast. Easy, healthy, delish!
Can overnight oats be served warm?
Yes, they can be warmed up! Simply heat them up in a microwave and you are good to go.
Are overnight oats gluten-free?
It depends on the kind of rolled oats you are buying. Oats are naturally gluten-free, but they can get contaminated during production. So make sure you buy a brand that explicitly states on the package that the oats are gluten-free.
How long can they be stored?
One thing I absolutely love is that you can store the overnight oats for 4 to 5 days in the refrigerator. This means you can prepare your breakfast for the whole week in advance and it only takes 10 minutes max! This recipe is just perfect in so many ways.
