Overnight oats are a staple in a lot of households – and for good reason! They are so quick and easy to make, highly versatile and provide you with a really wholesome breakfast option. They are also great to meal prep so you can increase this recipe as you please to make breakfast for a few days.

As they are so versatile, overnight oats lend themselves to any number of flavour combinations and pumpkin spice is my latest favourite. I’m really embracing pumpkin this year, and anything pumpkin pie spiced. From smoothies to breakfast oat bars to cookie dough truffles and everything in between. Oats was only the natural recipe to follow.

These Pumpkin Pie Spice Overnight Oats are naturally vegan, GF and refined sugar-free thanks to a few wholesome and plant-based ingredients:

  • Pumpkin puree: the key to the pumpkin element of the oats. I know some people are having difficulty finding puree in tins in the shops, so I did mention a few ways here for you to use other options (cook your own pumpkin/squash/sweet potato).
  • Plant-based milk: any milk will work here. I always use the one I have open in my fridge although favourites of mine are almond, oat or cashew.
  • Pumpkin pie spices: I have a really easy DIY pumpkin pie spice blend that is great to batch prep in 2 minutes for the pumpkin season or you can simply use cinnamon and mixed spice as in the recipe below.
  • Oats: pretty essential for overnight oats, just make sure you use GF certified oats, if needed. I like to use the larger flaked oats rather than quick cook oats purely for the texture but use your favourite kind.
  • Chia seeds: I always add these to my overnight oats. They give your breakfast the creamiest texture as well as a boost of fibre, protein and omegas!

Stir all of the base ingredients for these Pumpkin Pie Spice Overnight Oats together and let them thicken and soften in the fridge overnight. It’s like magic! The next morning the texture is just so good… it tastes almost like dessert. 

To top it all off, I love to add some thick coconut yoghurt, crunchy granola, almond butter, maple syrup, pomegranate and my sticky cinnamon apples.

I make these apples in many shapes and forms and for many different reasons.  You can even cook up a bigger batch to store in the fridge and warm back through in a pan or the microwave. All you need are apples, coconut oil (or vegan butter/margarine), coconut (or another) sugar and cinnamon. So simple and so delicious.

That’s all there is to it – I love making these for a really easy, creamy and delicious breakfast throughout the pumpkin season. They are thick and hearty, keeping you going all morning and despite being so easy it feels like a really special meal. The oats are naturally plant-based and GF and can be nut-free depending on the milk you use and omit the nut butter on top!
