I really like overnight oats. I also really like pumpkin pie. It’s also fall, and as a food blogger it is my sworn duty and responsibility to post at least one good pumpkin spice recipe before the season ends and we move on to Santa cupcakes and hot chocolate.
This recipe is what I would call skinny-ish. What I mean is that it’s not totally, completely clean and skinny, but it’s well within my standards for a guilt free breakfast. You’ll have to look at the recipe and decide for yourself, but I’m calling it good. And of course, you can always make omissions or substitutions if it doesn’t suit your tastes or diet. I rarely make a recipe exactly the way I found it, so no judgement from me. You do you, sister.
You should also be aware that this is a fairly large portion size of oatmeal, so if you want to break it up between two jars (or share a little with your kid like I do), don’t feel ashamed. I won’t look down on you if you want a lighter breakfast. I also won’t look down on you if you want to start your day completely full. Again, you do you.
Side note: I made my own pumpkin spice because I didn’t have any. See the recipe I used here.

- 3/4 cup oatmeal
- 2 tsp chia seeds
- 3/4 tsp pumpkin spice
- 1/3 cup canned pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 3 tbsp plain greek yogurt
- 2 tbsp honey or brown sugar
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1 cup almond milk sweetened or unsweetened
Add all ingredients in the order listed in a pint sized mason jar, put a lid on it, and shake until well combined. You may have to use a spoon to get the liquid to go down into the dry layer so that it will all fit in the jar.
Pretty easy, right? Do you like overnight oats or do you have another favorite fast and easy breakfast?
Can’t get enough pumpkin spice?
