Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats

I’ve been eating overnight oats in a jar for years. They are such an easy breakfast that you can make the night before and eat on a busy weekday or bring to work. These Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats are the perfect breakfast for fall. To make these oats, I whipped up a batch of pumpkin butter (AKA pumpkin heaven on a spoon) and stirred it into my oats along with chia, bananas, and nuts. I’m obsessed and will be enjoying these pumpkin overnight oats all season! You might also love these pumpkin muffin recipe.

Are overnight oats healthy?

Yes, these pumpkin pie overnight oats are healthy. One serving delivers a breakfast under 300 calories with ten grams each of protein and fiber.

Can you make overnight oats in advance?

Overnight oats are perfect for meal prep because you must make them the night before. They will last for up to four days in the refrigerator, so make a big batch and enjoy them all week. They’re great for those busy weekdays when you’re on the run.

How to make overnight oats

  1. Start with pumpkin butter (See my easy homemade recipe.). If you prefer to buy it, use a bit less as store-bought pumpkin butter has more sugar.
  2. Grab a jar or small glass container, like a Pyrex with a fitted lid, and mix all the base ingredients.
  3. Refrigerate overnight.
  4. The next morning, add your toppings (I usually add fresh fruit, nuts, and/or seeds.) and enjoy.


  • If you like your oats thicker, use half the milk.
  • Swap pumpkin butter for apple butter.
  • If you want to make these pumpkin overnight oats without chia seeds, use flax seeds instead.
  • You can use a plastic container instead of a mason jar if you prefer – just make sure that the container can hold up to two cups.

  1. This was really tasty as written. A couple of tweaks made it fantastic for me. First added a pinch of salt to balance the sweetness. I used jarred pumpkin butter and found that a generous Tbl was enough. Second, I heated mine in the morning which made it true oatmeal and wonderful on a cold morning. Third, I threw in a few blueberries with the banana and walnut toppings, which have it a great tart element. Yum!

  2. This is great! I’m no longer on WW, but I still come here for healthy recipes. When I made the pumpkin butter, I had no apple juice or cider, so I used a little extra sugar, water, and about 1 tsp of apple cider vinegar. The vinegary flavor cooks out as the butter simmers, and leaves you with just a hint of tartness to go with the sweetness of the pumpkin and sugar. Anyway, I made the oatmeal with steel-cut quick oats (I happen to like the thick, chewy texture), and warmed it up thoroughly in the microwave the next day. So, so, so good!

  3. Love this!!  Also found gingerbread butter at Stonewall Kitchen when I was shopping for pumpkin butter. Both work really well. 

    Thanks for posting!

  4. Great recipe, still tastes nice if you use half the pumpkin butter (used 1T and added a quarter of a ripe pear which I had on hand).

  5. I made the pumpkin butter and it came out pretty vinegary and it affected the oats.  I don’t want to trash the whole batch. Do you have suggestions for fixing the pumpkin butter. 

      1. Normally I hate when people are like, here’s how I completely changed this recipe and it was amazing! But I made a variation to this using the measurements and subbed in Wanna Date? vanilla date spread for the pumpkin butter because I didn’t have any and it was so delicious! Thank you for reviving my tired breakfast routine!

      2. I’ve been making this each fall since you originally shared this recipe. I make your pumpkin butter and eat these oats for work in the morning. I love them cold. Pepitas or walnuts on top are both great. I also used monkfruit sweetener this year in the pumpkin butter.  Fantastic recipe. Thank you! 

  6. Made your pumpkin butter two nights ago and used it for these overnight oats and all I have to say is WOW.. so delicious ! definitely going to repeat this recipe lots more !

  7. How long does this last in the fridge? Can I make it in advance for the week or is it best to make fresh every night?

    I have been having this for breakfast for a few weeks now and its so incredible. I mash up the banana more like the original Skinnytaste overnight oats with chia seeds recipe. You cannot see any browning through the orange hue from the pumpkin butter. I eat it for breakfast for 2 days with toasted pecans or almonds. Thank you!!!!!!

  9. My children are all fussy eaters, but when I served this together with peaches and celery, they loved it! Thanks so much!

  10. Hi Gina! I tried this with apples and peach, and they taste absolutely delicious! I didn't even have to use low-cal sweeteners! Thanks for sharing your recipe.

    Can this be eaten by people with diabetes? My dad is diagnosed having a kind of this disease and, I wanted to make this for him.

    1. yes, this would be a wonderful dish for someone who is has diabetes by just substituting 2 Tbsp pumpkin puree, 1 tsp Splenda brown sugar & 1 tsp cinnamon for the pumpkin butter. Also, the cinnamon & chia seeds are known to help control blood sugar. Since you count your carbs intake instead of sugar, oatmeal only has 15 gr with both the unsweetened almond milk & splenda brown sugar with less than 1 gr of carbs. I would leave out the bananas since they are high in carbs & calories unless your Uncle is low on potassium.

      1. Thanks so much for the suggestion of canned pumpkin puree and Splenda brown sugar. Wil try it tomorrow. We are having Gina’s pumpkin smoothies today. Clearing out the pantry for spring.

  12. I love overnight oats, and was wondering if anyone has tried heating them up in the morning for a warm breakfast treat? I've been tempted to try popping my breakfast in the microwave the last few days but I'm a little worried I'll ruin it!?

  13. LOVED IT! I kept it simple and only used milk, oatmeal and the pumpkin butter which has become a staple in my house! and it was more of an overnight oatmeal in a tupperware LOL, it was soooo good I'm making it again tonight but now for my son and husband as well 😉 LOVE SKINNYTASTE!!!

    1. Hemp Seed Hearts is a great substitute for the Chia Seeds in the Overnite Oats recipe.
      I prefer them over Chia Seeds. I buy Hemp Seed Hearts at Trader Joe’s (in the cereal section). They have a nutty-like flavor and soft, chewy texture. They are high in Protein and Omega Essential Fatty Acids. They’re worth trying! You can also add them to smoothies and sprinkle on salads, cereal, yogurt. Yum! I don’t do Weight Watchers so I wouldn’t know how to count the points but 1 Tbsp is 60 calories.

  14. Do you think it would still be good if I used regular milk instead of almond? THis sounds delicious!

  15. I have tried this recipe and it is delicious and so EASY. This is one of the recipes on this site that I've used and have not had to make any adjustments. I also like the suggestions and variations in the comments area.
    I also don't add the additional milk like others. I did it the first time and it was very watery. I like my oatmeal thick.
    Thanks for a great recipe!

    I've been eyeing your site and recipes for a few months ago and finally decided to try this one! I, too, like my oats a little thicker so I decided not to add the additional milk the next morning. I think I will try nuking it for a minute or two tomorrow. It smells and tastes heavenly. Even my husband loved it 🙂

  17. As written, this was WAY too thin for me – I took it to work and nuked it on medium power for about 2 minutes and it turned out okay. Still thinner than I like it, but edible. But the taste (and the smell!) was great. Next time I'll just make it with half the milk 🙂

  18. My friend, Julie, and I were running and she was telling me about this recipe. I had never heard of overnight oats. She took me to the store to get the ingredients. I have been making it every morning since. I LOVE, LOVE IT!!! I am a pumpkin fanatic so this is perfect. It's also great because you make it the night before. Somehow my kids always get fed first thing in the morning, but I wasn't. No longer. Thank you!

  19. GINA!

    Yet again, another hit out of the park! I made these last night for breakfast for my husband and I this morning. Needless to say, there are more in the fridge for tomorrow! I've added a little more banana for tomorrow (we love bananas!), but just awesome! I love that he has started doing WW with me, and recipes like this make him love it even more. Hats off and keep it up!

  20. Finally got around to making this an I'm eating it right now. Yes, it is delicious. I've been eating the summer version a few times a week and couldn't wait to try this one. Didn't have the pumpkin seeds, so I used black walnuts. Thanks for all your wonderful recipes and tips.

  21. I will admit I was skeptical of the overnight oat concept when I stumbled across this recipe, but it is DELICIOUS! Thank you!

    Also I saw a couple people have asked… I doubled the recipe and left it in the fridge for 2 nights, eating half each morning, and it was just as good the second day. This is where being in the jar is important I think as the lack of air keeps it fresh (the banana didn't turn brown). 🙂

  22. Tried this last night and loved it. I forgot the extras this morning and didn't miss them. I like my oatmeal on the thick side, plus I thought it tasted a little like cookie dough (yes I'm one of those people).

    I'm planning on making it for tomorrow and adding pumpkin seeds to it.

  23. Just wanted to know how long can I keep the pumpkin butter until it spoils? First time making it, just want to know so I can plan accordingly. Thanks

  24. This might be a silly question, I know they are called over night oats, but could I make a few batches at a time and have like a week's worth to turn to? some of my nights are crazier then others, and I'm not sure I would always prepare this every night.


  25. I love this pumpkin overnight oatmeal. The other overnight oatmeals I have made have been okay but I haven't really liked them…this one I love! I use skim milk instead of almond milk and I left out the banana and pumpkin seeds. Very yummy!!

  26. I made these last night (I almost feel guilty saying that because there was no work required!) and they turned out great. I've never been a big fan of oatmeal but this might just convert me. Thanks for the great recipe!

  27. What's the difference (if any) between quick oats and regular rolled oats? All we have is rolled oats.

  28. I have everything to make this except for the pumpkin pie spice. Any suggestions to make this with another spice to be used for the butter?

    Thanks You're Awesome!!!

    How far in advance do you think these could be made? I was thinking of maybe making a few days worth of breakfast all at once, but not if they get gross after sitting in the fridge too long! Thanks!

  30. This is my new absolute favorite! First time trying overnight oats and already so excited about the possibilities…but boy do I love pumpkin. Yum! And, with going for more unprocessed foods in my diet, this fits perfectly! Thank you again Gina for making my life taste better!

  31. Wow. I eat a lot of oatmeal. I have done the overnight oats thing before with my own blends. I was so curious about this one that:
    1) I ran out to buy a can of pumpkin
    2) I made the pumpkin butter
    3) I lovingly mixed up this recipe last night, deciding to skip the banana.

    This morning, it was lovely, not too sweet and smelled amazing. I nuked my for a minute and it got even thicker, which I LOVE. Truly the BEST oatmeal I have ever EVER had! Addiction begins here.

  32. Just ate my second jar today! So yummy… I might leave off the topping tomorrow though 'cause this stuff is really filling!

  33. Well was drooling over the Pumpkin overnight oatmeal recipe but… pumpkin butter so this afternoon made up 1/2 a batch of that (already shared some, might be sorry as it was mighty good)I used only 1/3 cup of brown sugar (for 1/2 a batch)very sweet still. I just made the overnight Pumpkin oatmeal using my homemade pumpkin butter now I am off to bed so I can get up early and try it can hardly wait for morning!

  34. I am not a fan of cinammon. Any ideas on what I could use in place of cinammon for this recipe and for the pumpkin butter?

  35. I made this last night with TJ's Apple Honey Butter (they aren't stocking pumpkin butter until the end of the month)and OMG it's delicious! I made one for my husband too and he called me in the car this morning to tell me how great it was. Thx

  36. I made this last night – the pumpkin butter and the overnight oats. I love it! I didn't add the extra milk or the pepitas this morning because I really like the texture without and I wanted to shave a point off if I could. Love them! Thanks Gina 🙂

  37. This is sooooo delicious!!! I am eating this right now and had to post a comment! I love your blog Gina, I make something from you're site almost every day.. Thank you so much for making eating right easy and fun!!!

  38. Are the directions supposed to be add 1/2 of the milk, and not 1/2 cup of the milk? You only call for 1/2 cup of almond milk in the ingredients list.

  39. I use regular milk in the overnight oats all the time and it tastes great! I'm guessing the almond milk is probably lower in points?

  40. can I make this with real milk? or is there something special about almond milk that works with the oats?

  41. Ok, I have a crazy idea….. one of my go-to breakfasts in winter is a baked sweet potato with pumpkin butter. I'm wondering if in place of the banana, part of a left over baked sweet potato could be used. I'll probably try it that way.

  42. I made the pumpkin butter and overnight pumpkin oats yesterday. I LOVED the pumpkin butter! The issue that I had with the oats is that it was pretty soupy this morning and tasted a little mushy. I was wondering if this the recipe is supposed to be like that or did I make a mistake? I was expecting more of an oatmeal consistency. Thanks!

    When you first posted about overnight oats, I wondered about a pumkpkin one, hadn't gotten around to thinking up my own. I knew you would! I just had it this morning and it was sublime. My husband and I have been eating overnight oats pretty much every morning since you first posted. Delicious and so versatile! Next up, . . . apple cinnamon, cranberries . . . maybe??

  44. I made the summer version of this and the texture came out really mushy. i don't know if I didn't something wrong or not. I can't eat Chia seed should i add more oats to thinken it up? Thanks.

  45. How many nights can you keep this? I was thinking about making a few for the week on Sunday but was wondering if it will hold up over 2 or 3 nights. Thanks!!

    1. I bought the Trader Joe's pumpkin butter for $2.29 a jar. The raw ingrediants to make the pumpking butter are $5-$10 plus your time. Better off just buying the TJ's jar.

  46. Gina, do you know what the pointsplus would be without the topping? Thanks! I'm looking forward to trying this!

  47. I'm addicted to overnight oats right now and pumpkin was going to be the next one I tried, thanks!! Cant wait

  48. My grandma just gave me some homemade apple butter.. would that work instead of pumpkin? (I love pumpkin stuff but just thinking since I already have the apple butter..)

    1. If you do this, do not add the pumpkin pie spice. You may need to add more cinnamon according to your taste. If your oats taste good you should share with Gina so everyone else can try it too. ^^

  49. Great, thanks Gina! I am excited since I love your pumpkin butter as well! (Along with your pumpkin pie dip, pumpkin cupcakes… :))

  50. Can I just leave the banana out of the overnight oatmeal recipe or is there a good substitute? Allergic…

    1. I used steel-cut oats, because I never buy instant oats, and it had a gluey taste. That could be something else I did, but you might need instant oats. …Kendra

  51. I'm excited! I've been doing the overnight oatmeal for about a month. Ready to try the pumpkin flavor! I don't think I'll ever cook oatmeal again!!

  52. Brilliant! Can't wait to try it. I've been eating your oats in a jar nearly every morning since you posted the original recipe. I sometimes mix cherry jam in mine if I'm out of frozen fruit. Love the stuff, and I will be doing this pumpkin one very soon (maybe tonight). Off to re-look at your mexican street corn recipe.

    1. I tried it with steel cut oats from my CSA, and the entire concoction tasted like glue. The oats themselves seemed moist enough, but it was just not very good. I'm guessing most people don't experience a glue-like taste, because everyone seems to love overnight oats, so maybe instant oats are the key? …Kendra

      The trick is grinding up the steel cut oats in a food processor or blender. Just a few pulses is all it takes. It totally works!
