Pumpkin Overnight Oats

This is the beginning of a series I am doing on breakfast ideas. I hope you find some inspiration!

Frugal Living is such a great website! My friend graciously sent me this easy as pie recipe from there. I love how easy it is! The easier the better is my motto! I'll say it again. Isn't pumpkin fun this time of year?

Pumpkin Overnight Oats
*this recipe makes 4 – 1 cup servings
1 1/2 cups regular oats (not instant) (I would use gluten free)
1 1/2 cups milk (almond, coconut, cow’s milk, etc)
1/4 cup pumpkin puree
1 tsp vanilla extract
1 Tbls ground flax seed ( or chia!)
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
2 Tbls pure maple syrup (or sweetener of choice to your desired sweetness)
Combine milk, pumpkin puree, vanilla, ground flax seed and pumpkin pie spice. Mix well. Add oats. Stir to combine. Cover and store in the fridge overnight. Wake up. Scoop out your portion and heat until desired temperature.


  1. I love how easy this is! I hate trying to think about cooking while I'm still waking up in the morning. This will be perfect for fall!
