These greek yogurt pumpkin spice overnight oats are an easy and healthy breakfast recipe full of protein and fall flavor!
Depending on how much sweetness you like, you can add more maple syrup, add less, or use your favorite sweetener instead. You can also make a vegan-friendly version by swapping out the Greek yogurt for a plant-based yogurt, and using a plant-based milk alternative as well.
If you're a part of the "I can't wait for cool, fall weather, but it's still like 80 degrees out, but I want to wear boots and sweaters anyways, and have a whole lotta lip sweat going on while wearing said sweater, drinking all the hot beverages, and unapologetically enjoying all the pumpkin things"...club, these oats are for you.
Yes, it's that fine time, where it's still summer, but your mind is full on in Fall mode. These cool and creamy pumpkin spice overnight oats give you all the fall feels, without initiating a sweat out. I LOVE this time of year! 😉

In a jar with a lid, add ½ cup of rolled oats, ½ teaspoon cinnamon, ¼ teaspoon pumpkin pie spice, 1 tablespoon brown sugar, ¼ cup milk of choice (I used unsweetened vanilla almond milk since that's what I had on hand), ⅓ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling), and ⅓ cup of plain Greek yogurt.
Stir it all together, replace lid, and refrigerate overnight. Before serving, top with a tablespoon of pumpkin seeds, and a teaspoon of maple syrup if desired. You can also top with more cinnamon, granola, or a dollop of peanut butter for extra deliciousness.
- Use pumpkin puree instead of pumpkin pie filling to control the amount of sugar added.
- Adding greek yogurt makes these super thick and creamy. If you want them a little less thick, add a touch more almond milk.
What kind of oats do I use?
I use rolled oats since they have a chewier texture than quick or instant oats. Steel cut will not work with this recipe.
Can I make these vegan?
You can easily make these vegan by swapping out the yogurt for a non-dairy alternative, or leaving out yogurt all together. Double the amount of almond milk used if not using any yogurt. You can also add a teaspoon of chia seeds to help make them thicker, too.
Are these gluten-free?
While oats do not contain any gluten, they can be cross-contaminated during processing. If needed, use certified gluten-free oats to make this completely gluten-free.
Money-Saving Tips for these Overnight Oats:
- Buy in bulk. Purchase items you use often, like oats, yogurt, or milk in bigger sizes for a more cost-effective option. You can buy a big can of pumpkin, and make a batch of these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies with the leftovers!
- Use store brands. Utilize store brands for items like spices and pumpkin for a less expensive option, that doesn't sacrifice flavor or quality.
