Ingredients in Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats and Chia

An overhead shot of the ingredients including chia seeds, oats, tablespoon of honey, teaspoon of pumpkin spice, a cup of cashew milk and half cup of pumpkin puree.

Here is what you will need to make this healthy fall breakfast:

Chia Seeds: I add chia seeds to just about everything for their healthy fats and are high in fiber plus they thicken up any recipe.

Rolled Oats: Gluten-free rolled oats are used. I would suggest not to use steel-cut oats unless you like a chewy texture.

Pumpkin Puree: Make sure to get pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie mix in a can. The pumpkin mix is pre-sweetened with sugar and spices. It’s best to control the amount of sweetener.

Pumpkin Spice: I use the one from Trader Joe’s. You can also make your own by mixing together cinnamon, clove, nutmeg, and ginger.

Milk: Any milk or non-dairy plant-based milk will do for this recipe. I used cashew milk for its nice creamy texture and a good amount of healthy fats and protein.

Honey: Adding honey to sweeten it up; maple syrup or monk fruit can also be used.

Toppings: So many options!! Plain greek yogurt, chopped pecans, cinnamon, and a dollop of pumpkin puree.
