Tips and Substitutes

  • Oats: you may use quick or rolled oats. Do not use steel-cut oats. Gluten-free oats are also fine to use. Some may not recommend quick oats but we have found that quick oats also work just fine.
  • Yogurt: We used Greek yogurt. You may use any yogurt of choice. Plant-based yogurt is fine to use for a vegan-friendly option. Yogurt gives a creamy texture and flavor to your overnight oats
  • Brew coffee ahead of time or you can use store-bought iced brewed black coffee. Another option would be to use instant coffee if you don’t want to brew any.
  • Chia Seeds: This ingredient will add in a ton of antioxidants while giving the overnight oats a pudding-like consistency.
  • Milk: we used 2%. Any milk would work. Use almond milk or any other plant-based milk for a vegan pumpkin pie overnight oats recipe.
  • Maple Syrup is the sweetener of choice. It is also vegan friendly. Agave would also be another great option. For non-vegans, you may use honey.
  • Store overnight oats in the fridge in mason-jars, individual cups, or containers for up to 3-5 days. You may just divide the overnight oats into 4-6 jars for more convenient storing. Easier grab and go.
  • Enjoy warm or cold. We prefer enjoying our overnight oats cold right off the fridge. You may microwave your overnight oats if you like them more on the warm side.

    Had this recipe a few times already. Just delicious. I followed the recipe except I used vanilla flavored greek yogurt, admitted the maple syrup and coffee, and added raisins. Put in an extra cup of milk to substitute the cup of coffee. I warmed mine in the microwave before eating and added a half a banana sliced on top. I love anything pumpkin so I really enjoyed this overnight oats.
