This Overnight Oats Recipe is evocative of the famous Pumpkin Spice Latte, but with better nutritional value. We used real pumpkin and freshly brewed coffee for a healthy breakfast recipe that tastes better than everyone’s favorite fall beverage!
This recipe combines two of our obsessions in one nutritious, grab-and-go breakfast that you can prepare the night before in less than ten minutes and coffee. We added real delicious pumpkin to a version of our Popular Overnight Oats recipe and turned it into a Pumpkin Spice Latte healthy breakfast!
You’re going to love this morning treat. The biggest bonus? It contains coffee, so if you need an extra boost of energy to really enjoy pumpkin season, we’ve got you covered!
What is Pumpkin Spice?
Pumpkin spice or pumpkin pie spice is a mix of cinnamon, allspice, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg. The amount of each spice depends on the brand you buy. We encourage you to try different ones and pick your favorite. You can also make your own.
Love it or hate it, pumpkin spice flavor is everywhere in the fall. The funny thing is that most of the recipes made with pumpkin spice are not made with actual pumpkin. Which is kind of crazy if you think about it! And a shame also, because there’s so much you’re missing out on when not using real pumpkin. Pumpkin is filled with antioxidants, fiber, vitamins, and minerals. It’s rich, flavorful, creamy, filling, and satisfying! And the best part, you can skip all the hard work and save some time by buying it canned.
What is in a Pumpkin Spice Latte?
Pumpkin Spice Latte, or PSL, is the now-famous autumn limited-edition drink at Starbucks. PSL is made with espresso, steamed milk (regular or plant-based), pumpkin spice syrup, and whipped topping. We used those same elements (coffee, plant-based milk, pumpkin, and spices) to create an overnight oats experience that imitates a PSL!
It’s everything you love about your favorite Starbucks drink...with the added nutritional benefits of overnight oats. As a bonus, you can control the amount of sweetness and spice that goes into this overnight oats recipe.
Basic Overnight Oat Recipe
A basic Overnight Oats Recipe is made with just oats (rolled, not quick-cooking or steel-cut), plant-based milk, Chia Seeds, and a sweetener of your choice! They're countless variation options, and they’re so easy to customize with your favorite flavors. The oats and chia seeds soak in the liquid overnight, making the oats soft and creamy, giving the overnight oats a delicious texture without any cooking time at all. It’s a true miracle for busy mornings!
Are Overnight Oats Gluten-Free?
Yes! In order to make your overnight oats recipe gluten-free just make sure you buy certified gluten-free oats. This overnight oats recipe is vegan, you can use any plant-based milk such as soy, almond, cashew, oat, etc., and a non-dairy yogurt of your choice. Of course, you can also use dairy milk and yogurt if you wish.

It has coffee in the ingredients, but it doesn't say when to add it. We added it when we mixed everything else up. We will be eating tomorrow morning!!

Thank you for letting us know, we will correct the mistake.
Is the pumpkin puree raw? Have you tried this with cooked pumpkin?
Vicky and Ruth says
We made it with canned pumpkin puree which is already cooked, but you can definitely try fresh cooked pumpkin or cooking the canned pumpkin a little.
