Peanut Butter - swap for almond butter or Biscoff spread.
Maple Syrup - to sweeten, or use honey.

Pumpkin Spices - cinnamon, ginger, and nutmeg.

🍴 Serving suggestions
Top the pumpkin overnight oats with yogurt, peanut butter granola, candied pecans, whipped cream, chocolate chips, or dried fruit, such as cranberries or raisins.
Or, just eat them as they are, with the crunchy pumpkin seeds on top!
- Add a spoonful of chia seeds for added protein.
- Top each jar with greek yogurt.
- Use a store-bought pumpkin pie spice.
Store: Make the overnight oats at least 6 hours before eating. They will keep in the fridge for up to 3 days.
Reheat: Overnight oats are usually eaten cold, but you can microwave them for 30 seconds if you prefer eating oats warm. Make sure the jar they are in is microwave safe.
❓ Frequently asked questions
No, any small container with a lid is suitable for overnight oats. Glass jars just look pretty!
Use ordinary porridge (rolled) oats. Quick cook oats and jumbo oats don't work as well and affect the finished texture.
