Busy mornings call for creamy overnight oats! They take just a few minutes of prep work, but will really simplify your morning with an easy breakfast.

One afternoon I set up a fun overnight oats station with my kids.

They each got their own container to fill and had the best time adding their favorite mix-ins into their overnight oats that they would enjoy the next morning.

While they mixed theirs, I made a big batch of this peanut butter pumpkin overnight oats!

The next day, we all enjoyed our own individual overnight oatmeal recipes. It was such a fun activity to do with kids!

I love bringing kids into the kitchen. Measuring and mixing is a great way to introduce them to cooking together.

Up the protein even more

I like to pair this healthy overnight oats recipe with hard-boiled eggs, which is another food I can prep ahead to increase the protein a tad more.

Another good idea would be to swap in protein powder for the collagen peptides for even more protein in this delicious breakfast recipe.

I am all about breakfasts that fill me up and give me lasting energy, and protein is a big part of that!

How to make peanut butter pumpkin overnight oats

  1. In a bowl, mash the banana fully.
  2. Mix in the peanut butter, pumpkin purée, oats, chia seed, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, and sea salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour in the almond milk and stir until fully combined.
  4. Pour into 2 mason jars, bowls, or an airtight container. Add a lid or plastic wrap, and allow to sit in the fridge overnight (or at least for 2 hours). When the liquid absorbs into the pumpkin oatmeal you’ll be left with a pudding-like consistency.

Substitutions

Below you’ll find a list of substitutions that will work well in this overnight pumpkin oats recipe. 

If you try something different out, please leave a comment below letting us all know how it turned out!

Banana – If the banana is not your favorite flavor, use applesauce instead. If you want to ensure you get enough sweetness as you would from the banana, add a little pure maple syrup to sweeten it to your liking.

Peanut butter – Use any nut or seed butter instead of peanut butter here. Almond butter, sunflower seed butter, or cashew butter are all delicious choices.

Pumpkin – Substitute mashed sweet potato or canned butternut squash puree for the pumpkin puree. You can also homemade pumpkin puree if you have some available!

Rolled oats – Old fashion oats are the same as rolled oats, so they are the perfect sub here. Quick oats will work as well, but steel cut oats will not.

Chia seed – If you don’t have chia seeds available, try using ground flax seed instead. While flax does not absorb the same amount that chia seeds do, it will work here as well. You’ll want to reduce the liquid used by ⅓-1/2 to get the same texture in the end.

Almond milk – Any type of non-dairy milk works great. Try coconut milk, oat milk, macadamia nut milk, or cashew milk. Regular cow milk will work too! Use less liquid for a super thick overnight oat mixture.

Tasty variations

  • Add some orange zest and orange juice for a pop of flavor.
  • Throw in some dried fruit – dried cranberries are a tasty fall flavor addition!
  • Add cocoa powder (always a good idea!) for some chocolaty goodness.
