This Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats is like having dessert for breakfast! Creamy oats, crunchy pecan nuts, and packed with pumpkin pie flavors, make this the perfect fall morning treat!
Overnight oats are a no-cook method of making oatmeal. Instead of cooking your oats with liquid on the stove or in the microwave, you mix rolled oats with the liquid and other mix-ins, and let it rest in the fridge overnight.
In the morning, you have a creamy, pudding-like porridge ready to be devoured. You can eat it at room temperature, or pop the jar in the microwave and heat it for 30 seconds, for a warm comforting brekkie.
This Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats has quickly become a household favorite. It’s crunchy, creamy, slightly spiced, and it makes a perfect grab-and-go breakfast for busy mornings. It’s simple to make and loaded with healthy goodness. Best of all, it takes just 5 min prep.
