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 Susan! Happy Holidays! I don’t see the raisins and maple syrup in the breakdown?

    YUM!! Looks so amazing!
    I’ve just got regular gluten free rolled oats in my fridge, I’ve never even thought about rolling my own! Also, is the taste of the pumpkin different if you have it raw? I’ve never had it raw before as I always roast or steam mine!

    hi, I think when you talk about raw pumpkin, it is still raw if you cook it on low heat, 45 celsius for several ours. am I right Susan? 🙂

    Some pumpkins are not to eat raw, other pumpkins are to eat raw. Which pumpkins strains are good to eat raw? Which pumpkins are good to be used in sweet receipes like this?

    Yey– so exited to try this recipe! I have noticed other no-cook oatmeal recipes online before but have yet to try one. Since I already happened to have a little pumpkin purée left in my fridge from other autumnal experiments, this seemed like the perfect opportunity to finish it off. I also combined a little apple cider with the nut milk liquid for some extra enhancement.

    Looks good. I wonder, could I sub ground flax or flax seeds (perhaps in a slightly smaller amount) for the chia?

    I love the pumpkin too, and buy six or seven at least each autumn before my local farmer’s market closes for the season, so that I always have one cooked and ready to use, and another ready to roast. I never get tired of the taste before they’re gone.
