Not sure what to do with leftover pumpkin puree? This is it!
Just finished a baking project, and you're left with an odd amount of leftover pumpkin puree? This is the recipe for you! This easy Pumpkin Pie flavored overnight oats recipe only calls for ½ cup of pumpkin per serving! Perfect for that little bit left in the can you're looking to use up!
What goes into the Pumpkin overnight oats?
To make these creamy and delicious oats, you will need:
- Nonfat Greek yogurt. I like to use vanilla flavored Greek yogurt.
- Milk. Use your fave! Non dairy works, too!
- Canned pumpkin purée (not pumpkin pie filling).
- Pure Maple syrup, or honey. If you like your oats less sweet, cut the amount to your tastes.
- Vanilla extract.
- Old fashioned oats. I like Bob's Red Mill Old Fashioned Rolled Oats.
- Ground cinnamon, fresh grated nutmeg, salt, and ground ginger.
- Chopped pecans and a touch of whipped cream (optional) for serving.
Making the overnight oats
To make the overnight oats, you'll start by mixing together the pumpkin, yogurt, milk, vanilla, and your sweetener of choice in a small mixing bowl. Once well combined, you'll add the oats and spices, and mix well. Transfer the mixture to your vessel of choice, cover (or seal) and refrigerate for at least 6 hours, and up to 5 days.
When you're ready to eat, top the jar with the chopped pecans, add a dollop of whipped cream for your inner child, and indulge in pumpkin pie - for breakfast!
Can I make the oats ahead of time?
While overnight are meant to sit, well, overnight- you can actually make them well ahead of time. If you want to prep these for the week, you can make them 4-5 days in advance. Then you can grab and go whenever you like. I like store mine in mason jars with lids for easy storage and transport. On the go? Make small portioned baggies of pecans for topping!
Storing the Overnight Oats
Once the oats are blended and in their containers, you'll store them in the refrigerator until ready to eat. For best texture and flavor, make them at least 6 hours prior to when you plan to enjoy them.
