Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats
Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats are creamy overnight oats with chia seeds to make them even more nutritious! They’re the perfect healthy, grab ‘n go breakfast!
I’ve told you time and time again: I’m not a morning person! You’ve heard it all before. Sorry I sound like I’m yelling at you there…it’s not even the morning as I write this post and I sound grumpy. Maybe I’m grumpy because I didn’t have these Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats this morning. Clearly I need to make more.
Ever since I made my Blueberry Chia Overnight Oats, I’ve had them countless ways. Blueberries are on their way out since it’s almost fall, so there’s a new flavor in town!
Good-bye blueberries and hellllllooo pumpkin. 🙂
I knew pumpkin would be great in my overnight oats…it had to be. It was (obviously!), and was also the perfect thing to do with the leftover pumpkin from my Mini Cookies ‘n Cream Pumpkin Cheesecakes.
The first time I made pumpkin overnight oats, I didn’t use chia seeds. Silly me, because they were noticeably absent. Chia seeds really add something to overnight oats. It’s a mild flavor…a heartiness…and definitely more substance. We need that in our breakfast! So I added them for Round 2, and they were complete.
Completely good, that is. 🙂
For whatever reason, I prefer dairy free milk in my overnight oats. My go-to’s are coconut and almond, and I used almond here. You can customize these oats with whatever type of milk you prefer.
You can also customize the sweetener of your choice. Mine is maple syrup, but brown sugar would definitely be the next best thing in my book. We’ve also got cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice added because pumpkin isn’t complete without them.
As shown in my photos, I added mini semi-sweet chocolate chips to my overnight oats, which I loved. Other great add-in’s would be toasted pecans, pumpkin seeds, and/or coconut flakes. Or add them all! You really can’t go wrong here. 🙂
I love breakfast so much that I go to sleep thinking about what I’m going to have in the morning. And knowing that I have this healthy, delicious, no-lifting-a-finger kind of breakfast waiting for me when I wake up makes me dream sweet breakfast-y dreams.
I really need to make more overnight oats soon. 🙂
