What are overnight oats?

If you haven’t had overnight oatmeal, it is a method of making oatmeal a bit differently than usual. Instead of cooking oats on your stovetop or microwave and eating them warm, overnight oats are cooked by being soaked with ingredients in the fridge overnight.

By having the oats soak in the fridge, they will absorb the liquid and be ready to eat without being cooked in the typical way.

What ingredients do I need?

  • Oats – Oatmeal is one my breakfast staples because it’s a slow-digesting carbohydrate that will steadily provide energy. For this recipe, the oats are “cooked” by being mixed with other ingredients and sitting in the fridge overnight. I would suggest quick oats.
  • Chia seeds – A scoop of chia seeds doesn’t add flavor, but several nutrients. They can also help thicken up the oatmeal for a creamy texture.
  • Almond milk – The almond milk is going to help “cook” the oats and serve as the liquid that the oats will absorb.
  • Greek yogurt – Greek yogurt is going to make the oats extra creamy. It is also an awesome source of protein! A plain or vanilla flavor will work great, but for extra pumpkin flavor you can use a pumpkin greek yogurt.
  • Vanilla – A little bit of vanilla will add some extra sweetness to the oats.
  • Pumpkin – These wouldn't be pumpkin pie oats without pumpkin! Pumpkin puree from the can will work great for this recipe.
  • Cinnamon - Some cinnamon will add great flavor to these oats. Plus, there are awesome health benefits to cinnamon.
  • Honey Bear Bites – The key to the pie crust texture of the recipe is to add crushed honey bear bites (or graham crackers or teddy grahams). The crumbled honey crackers will be such a treat with lime yogurt.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice - A little bit of pumpkin pie spice will add some extra pumpkin flavor to these oats!
  • Optional Add-Ins: Vanilla protein powder, cashew butter, syrup, honey, stevia, slivered almonds, coconut, etc.

What substitutions can I make?

  • Oats – Because this recipe is for overnight oats, you definitely need some sort of oats. I use quick oats but you could use gluten-free, flavored, or whatever kind you like best.
  • Chia seeds – This is an optional ingredient and the recipe will still turn out great if you don’t add these seeds.
  • Almond milk – Any other kind of milk will work well for this recipe so you can choose whatever matches your dietary needs.
  • Pumpkin - Pumpkin is a necessity for this recipe!
  • Greek yogurt – I would recommend keeping yogurt so you definitely get a creamy texture, but you could use any kind of yogurt. For example, greek, low-fat, or dairy-free options will all work.
  • Honey Bear Bites – I would definitely add some sort of graham cracker addition, whether it’s a regular graham cracker or honey teddy graham. My favorite are Honey Bear Bites because they’re packed with protein!
  • Vanilla, Cinnamon and Pumpkin Pie Spice– I like to add vanilla, cinnamon, and pumpkin pie spice for extra delicious flavor, but you could leave these out and it would be okay.

Is this recipe healthy?

Each person has their own definition of healthy, and this recipe absolutely is healthy for me! This recipe has a balance of carbohydrates, protein, and healthy fats. The recipe is packed with protein and has 19 grams per serving.

I love that I can eat this for breakfast and it will keep me full and fueled until lunch!
