Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats is one of those breakfast recipes will make you wonder how you ever lived without it.  The flavors of Fall come together in this dish with just a handful of ingredients. A few minutes spent putting Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats together the night before makes your morning a total breeze.   You’re going to love these fabulously fall-ish oats!

True, some places sell pre-made packaged oatmeal that tastes very nice indeed.  But still, nothing beats the satisfaction of making something great yourself!  And, we all know it’s a bonus to know precisely what you’re eating and feeding your family. Watching family members start their day without fast cooking is an answer to prayer during busy mornings.

In the fall, there’s something particularly enticing about the idea of making pumpkin oatmeal ahead. Maybe it’s because we’re all a little busier than usual. It’s nice to know that our loved ones can grab breakfast from the fridge before they rush out the door. Keeping a family fed without any super big AM fuss is a fantastic feeling during the Fall or any season!

TEN BEAUTIFUL FACTS about Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats:

  • Oatmeal in individual portions makes it so that everyone enjoys their oats when and where they want!
  • These oats are packed with useful carbs, the kind your body requires to keep everything operating.
  • And they’re loaded with satisfying plant-based protein and beneficial fiber.  These overnight oats are nothing short of a health-nuts dream come true!
  • Eating oats may help lower LDL “bad” cholesterol and may also help reduce the risk of heart disease.
  • Rolled oats help you feel fuller longer, which helps control your weight – nice!
  • Because of its many heart health benefits, The American Heart Association highly recommends oatmeal.
  • We often include the optional pumpkin seeds because we love a bit of crunch and they’re a good source of heart-healthy magnesium, immunity-boosting zinc and are also one of the best sources of plant-based omega-3s.
  • We snuck some carrots in because we wanted to give a bit of a taste nod to carrot cake. The carrots add some healthy vitamin A, antioxidants, and other nutrients. Vitamin A is essential for normal vision, the immune system, and reproduction.
  • Vitamin A also helps the heart, lungs, kidneys, and other organs work properly.
  • Once thoroughly chewed, chia seeds help you feel full because they absorb ten times their weight in water, forming a space-hogging gel. The jelly-like texture of the soaked chia seeds is one of my favorite parts of these Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats.

  • 1/2 cup of old-fashioned rolled oats - You can also use steel cut oats or a combo of both. Be sure that the oats you use are certified gluten-free, like we do, if gluten is an issue for you as all oats are not gluten-free.
  • 1 tbsp of chia seeds
  • 1 tbsp of chopped walnuts
  • 1/4 tsp of ground nutmeg
  • 1/2 tsp of ground cinnamon
  • 3 tbsp of freshly grated carrot
  • 1/2 tsp of pure vanilla extract
  • 3/4 cup unsweetened plant-based milk - We used unsweetened almond milk.
  • 3 tbsp of unsweetened pumpkin puree - We like this brand of pumpkin puree.
  • 1 tbsp of pure maple syrup
  • an optional dash of pink Himalayan sea salt, or another salt
  • an optional sprinkling of raw pumpkin seeds


  1. Add all of the listed ingredients to a lidded jar or another container and stir or shake until everything is well mixed.  
  2. Cover and refrigerate overnight or for at least four hours or so. Your overnight oats can be made and stored in the fridge for a quick breakfast the next morning. And though store well in the refrigerator, they'll taste best if used within about five days.


  • You can add more or less maple syrup depending on how sweet you like your oats. And you may also add more almond milk if you prefer a thinner consistency.
  • Pumpkin Chia Overnight Oats is a terrific breakfast idea for the holidays when entertaining overnight guests to make morning time a breeze.  Imagine serving this to your overnight guests during Thanksgiving or Christmas get-togethers. You'll be crowned the hostess with the most-est!
