I love a good bowl of Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats in the morning when it’s fall but the weather still feels like summer. This recipe is autumn in a healthy breakfast bowl; high in fiber, protein, and healthy fats. Make it cold or hot, both options included!
Healthy Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
I don’t know about you, but as soon as that first leaf hits the ground, I am full on fall mode! I want all the pumpkin lattes, the apple pies, the chai flavored sweets, and more. It’s easy to get carries away with the sweets am I right? Let me show you how to celebrate the fall season with a healthy vegan breakfast: pumpkin pie overnight oats.
Oats are such a nutritious grain to have for breakfast. Oats are high in fiber, which will keep you full until lunch time, reduce constipation, and regulate blood sugar! I also used pumpkin puree as the fruit (yes, it is a fruit!), cashew butter and pumpkin seeds for extra protein and healthy fat. This recipe is balanced, nourishing, and absolutely delicious!
- Easy grab-n-go breakfast: If you work from home, just scoop it right out of the container and into a bowl to enjoy. If you travel to get to work, place it in mason jars or Tupperware the night before so it’s ready to grab and go!
- Healthy vegan breakfast: A very balanced breakfast with fiber, healthy fats, proteins, and a ton of micronutrients. Fun fact: pumpkin is rich immune boosting nutrients such as vitamin C, E, A, and antioxidants.
- 10 minutes or LESS to make: Seriously so easy to prepare, just pour everything in a mixing bowl, mix well and wait!
- Festive: The perfect way to celebrate autumn in a healthy and nourishing way.
- Versatile: Want to make it hot? Yes, can do! Try cooking it on the stove top or baking it in the oven for a cozier breakfast.
Tips & Substitutes:
- Oats: Rolled oats are the best to use for this recipe. I love using Bakery on Main for certified gluten-free oats. I don’t recommend using any other type of oats for this recipe.
- Plant-based milks: I am a big fan of almond milk for this recipe but also recommend using soy milk for extra protein. Soy milk is higher in protein and is a great option for those that just did their morning workout. I advise against using oat milk or cashew milk for this specific recipe.
- Cashew butter: I love the mild flavor and creaminess of cashew butter and HIGHLY recommend you try it if you haven’t already. A great substitute for this would be almond butter or walnut butter.
- Sweetener: I love the flavor that maple syrup or brown sugar provide. You can also use regular sugar though! Trivia or stevia if you are watching your blood sugars.
