A wholesome and delicious way to have pumpkin pie for breakfast!

Fall breakfasts are the best. I’m thinking pumpkin, apples, warm comforting spices first thing in the morning with a side of pumpkin spice tea or latte. Fuzzy sweaters. Love. I’m getting all sappy.

So here’s your most convenient way to have such a dreamy Fall morning with near-zero prep in the morning. Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats!

Made with oats, chia seeds, pumpkin, that protein powerhouse greek yogurt, little touch of maple syrup, pumpkin spice (and everything nice), this breakfast is sure to power you through the AM. The recipe makes only 2 servings but feel free to double it up and serve Monday-Thursday!

Ingredients:

  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (60 g)
  • 1/4 cup strained greek yogurt (I use 2%, you can sub cottage cheese for Pumpkin Cheesecake Overnight Oats!) (60 g)
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened almond milk (or any other milk) (120 g)
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup (21 g)
  • 1/2 cup rolled oats (40 g)
  • 1 tbsp chia seeds (12 g)
  • 1/2 tsp (or more) pumpkin spice
  • pinch of sea salt

Serves 2. Mix together pumpkin, yogurt, milk, maple syrup. Whisk together oats, chia seeds, spices, salt. Combine the two in a sealed container and refrigerate overnight. In the morning, EAT! I served mine with 1/2 sliced banana, 1 tbsp pecan pieces and a sprinkle of granola. It should also pair nicely with apple and pumpkin seeds!

Hope you enjoy this breakfast and tag me on instagram with your pictures if you make it! ❤

Hi I'm Elif! I'm a mama, computer science PhD and Google engineer by day, food blogger by night. I love beautiful desserts that not only taste amazing, but also leave you feeling amazing. I use my math skills and interest in nutrition to carefully optimize my recipes to use simple, good-for-you ingredients and minimal amount of added sugar. I believe that healthy desserts can be simple. Recipes should not send you searching for rare ingredients, untested sweeteners or measuring ridiculous 1/2 tsp of butter. Here we use few ingredients, basic measuring cups, spoons, and simple fruit, veg, little sugar and syrup as sweeteners. Most recipes here use so little added sugar that they're good enough for toddlers. I also believe that you should be able to fit healthy sweets into your daily routine. No matter how much almond flour and coconut oil is in a healthy dessert recipe, there's no way I'm going to ingest a meal's worth of energy and a day's worth of total sugar from dessert alone. And that is the reason all my desserts have less than 200 cal per serving and are low-sugar. So now will you join us?

  1. I added this up in the Lose It app and it was 314 calories without the toppings. The oats alone are 150 and a tbsp of chia seeds is 80. Still a great low calorie breakfast but wanted to give you a heads up.
