Healthy Breakfast Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Overnight oats have been around for a very long time. The idea is simple. Mix your oats with milk and spices, leave overnight to soak and soften and in the morning you have a wonderful bowl of delicious, creamy oats. A lovely healthy breakfast awaits you.


Fall Overnight Oats


I have been intrigued by overnight oats for quite a while. Fall is one of my favorite seasons and the flavors of fall are a great addition to an overnight oat bowl. I am still on my pumpkin, a nutritional superstar kick so this recipe uses super healthy pumpkin purée, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, raisins and maple syrup! The addition of chia seeds adds protein, omega 3 fatty acids, fiber, and other nutrients. Super simple, super good, super nutritious. And you won’t believe how creamy the oats are.

Sprouted Oats

To get the most nutritional punch, sprout, dehydrate and flake your own oats. You can make a big batch and once they are dried, just use as you would normal oats. But this recipe works with regular rolled oats, just fine (not raw). You can buy sprouted oats here: Sprouted Rolled Oats.
You can use raw pumpkin purée (just purée pumpkin in the food processor or blender), or in a pinch canned (not raw). I used fresh almond milk.

    Hi! I found your blog today! Everything looks so good!! I was wondering if this would turn out the same if I made it like regular oatmeal?? Maybe warm the almond milk and puréed pumpkin then mixed it with the oats and spices and cover it until done?? Thanks in advance for your help!!

    How about unhulled oat groats to keep it really raw ? Although I generally do not recommend grains . I would also say dates soaked and pureed instead of maple syrup , which also , often is not raw.

      Hi, Jan, The great thing about the raw oats that are specified in the post is that they are raw! They are oat groats that have only been flattened, not processed. And if dates rock your boat, that is great! Sometimes I use them, other times I use maple syrup. It just depends on the flavor profile I am looking for in the recipe. We are not obsessed with being 100% raw here, high raw is our goal. Cheers!

    I’ve just prepared this for breakfast tomorrow morning, but took a little taste beforehand. It tastes amazing, and I can’t wait to try it! Thank you so much!!

    This looks really delicious – I love my morning porridge and never though that I might get something even better that was raw. What a great way to introduce more raw foods without feeling deprived.

    Oats are such a good source of soluble fibre and stop me feeling hungry until lunch so I was reluctant to consider giving them up. This could be a good alternative.

    Can you use oats that are not raw? They’re hard to find in my local grocery stores?
