- Pumpkin purée - this is canned pumpkin not pumpkin pie filling.
- Almond milk - any nut milk will work in this pumpkin pie oatmeal recipe.
- Chia seeds - these are tasteless seeds that will expand when soaked with a liquid. You should be able to find them at most grocery stores.
- Rolled oats - use gluten-free if needed.
- Pumpkin spice - I used the actual pumpkin spice seasoning but you can use cinnamon and/or nutmeg and still get some nice fall vibes.
Step by step directions
This pumpkin pie overnight oatmeal recipe is SO simple to make. Make sure you have a large mixing bowl and 5 small Tupperware for each serving.
Step 1 : Mix together the pumpkin and nut milk
In a mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin and nut milk until well incorporated. You can use a spoon or a whisk to do this.
Step 2 : Add the remaining ingredients
Add the chia seeds, rolled oats, and pumpkin spice to the bowl and continue to mix well. Stir until all of the oats have been coated with the mixture. It will be a little runny at this point but that's okay.
Step 3 : Portion out into containers
Spoon the oat mixture into 5 individual containers. I recommend small glasses like these. Make sure they are air tight and place them in the fridge overnight to chill.
Step 4 : Top with toppings
When ready to enjoy, top your pumpkin pie oatmeal with toppings like greek yogurt, chopped nuts, and cinnamon.
There are many ways to switch up this recipe and make it your own. Here are a few ways I recommend:

- You can also switch up the toppings. Add some pumpkin seeds on top or a drizzle of cashew butter to mix it up!
