Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

My distaste for the PSL {pumpkin spice latte} is no secret. I don't know what it is {too sweet, maybe?} but I just can't get behind this festive fall drink.  That doesn't mean I'm a total pumpkin spice hater, I am not.  I actually love all things pumpkin outside of the PSL.  Gimme all the pumpkin muffins, coffee creamer, chili, and, now, overnight oats.

Overnight oats and smoothie bowls have become super popular lately and rightfully so.  First of all, they are SO EASY.  Just mix everything in a bowl and enjoy.  Second of all, if you do it the night before your breakfast is ready to go when you wake up. And, lastly, you can pretty much throw any ingredients together and have something healthy, yummy, and extremely filling.

This pumpkin spice version could be made using Greek yogurt, chia seeds, chocolate chips, etc.  I used what I had on hand and it turned out delicious, almost like a slice of pumpkin pie! Say what?  It's true!  

  • ¼ cup brewed {chilled} coffee
  • ¼ cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • ¼ cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  • 1 tablespoon flaxseed
  • ½ cup old fashioned oats 

  • Instruction:
  • Combine all of the ingredients except the oats and stir until combined and smooth
  • Add the oats and stir to cover
  • Place in the refrigerator overnight
  • Stir in additional milk before serving, if necessary

  • That's it!  It's that easy!  Enjoy!


    1. This sounds sooo good. I use to like PSL until last year. I tried two of them, from two different SB locations and they tasted burnt or something. Totally ruined my love for them. But give me everything else pumpkin.
