Pumpkin Overnight Oats captures the feel of a delicious fall morning in a jar. In the hustle and bustle of doctor appointments, meetings, or workouts, eating a breakfast that is delicious and filling can be difficult. Pumpkin overnight oats provides a breakfast option that is fast, inexpensive, healthy, and portable!


½ cup old-fashioned oats (rolled or regular)

½ cup milk (Almond, soy, or dairy all work just fine.)

2 tablespoons pumpkin puree

1 tablespoon chopped walnuts or pecans

1 teaspoon of pumpkin pie spice

Optional: 1 teaspoon maple syrup


The night before combine all ingredients in a Mason jar or food storage container with a lid.

Let the ingredients soak in refrigerator overnight.

Enjoy in the morning!

Bonus: For extra fun, you can top your oats with a scoop of Greek yogurt or cranberries!
