Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
After much tweaking with various combinations and measurements, this is the version I enjoy the most. Feel free to adjust to your preference, adding a little extra milk if you like your oats "soupier" or an extra drizzle of maple syrup on top if you prefer it sweeter.

Yields 1 serving.


Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup (1 ounce) old-fashioned oats (certified gluten-free if necessary)
  • 1/3 cup (2 3/4 ounces) milk of choice
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) pumpkin puree (may used canned; not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/4 cup (2 ounces) plain Greek yogurt (I use Chobani 0%; may substitute 2%, vanilla, or honey)
  • 2-3 teaspoons maple syrup (or to taste)
  • 1 teaspoon chia seeds
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice (may use cinnamon)
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla or almond extract
  • Optional mix-ins: 1-2 tablespoons raisins or dried cranberries, 2-3 teaspoons flaked coconut (sweetened or unsweetened as preferred)
  • Optional toppings: granola, sunflower seeds, pepitas, or chopped nuts of choice

Instructions

  1. Mix all of the ingredients in a small bowl or jar. I often use a 12-ounce jelly or Mason jar. Add optional mix-ins, as desired.
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight.
  3. Sprinkle with toppings of choice. Enjoy cold or gently warm, if desired. Oatmeal cups will keep for approximately 3 days in the refrigerator.
