Are you looking for a perfectly sweet but still good for you pumpkin treat? These Overnight Oats are a filling and satisfying way to start your morning, and they’re easy to customize based on your preferences and what you have in your pantry!
Overnight Oats were made for meal prep–you can make them up to a week ahead of time and leave them in the fridge until you’re ready to enjoy them. Heating is optional–in fact, most of my readers enjoy them cold!

Why Two Good™ Greek Low Fat Yogurt?
I prefer using the Two Good™ brand for a few reasons–it is an excellent source of protein and contains only 2g of sugar per serving. Also, this brand of Greek yogurt has lower carbs than others.
In addition, the Two Good™ yogurt brand has my heart because when you buy it, an equal amount of food goes to someone in need. I love that this low sugar option is available in my local Walmart store in both 4 packs and quart size containers. Walmart’s Online Pickup and Delivery service has been so helpful this year, and I highly recommend it.
Ingredients in these Pumpkin Overnight Oats:
- Rolled oats Gluten free if you need them to be :)
- Two Good™ Greek Low Fat yogurt Plain or vanilla, depending on your flavor preferences. See below for tips!
- Almond Milk or Coconut Milk I prefer almond milk for these, but use whatever plant based milk is in your fridge. If you enjoy regular milk, you can use that as well.
- Pumpkin pie spices: Cinnamon, ginger, cloves, and nutmeg
- Peanut butter Extra protein, and peanut butter is delicious when paired with pumpkin!
- Optional ingredients:
- Honey or maple syrup
- Chia seeds A super easy way to add extra protein to your diet
- MCT powder Fills you up and gives you energy
- Pumpkin puree ‘Tis the season!
- Instant coffee grounds (Pumpkin Spice Latte, anyone?!)
How to make these Overnight Oats:
Before I tell you how to make these Overnight Oats, I want you to know that simply adding all of the ingredients into a jar and stirring them together is 100% ok and delicious. I’m going to walk you through layering your ingredients below.
Time needed: 10 minutes.
Assembling these pumpkin oats is quick and easy! They taste best after sitting in the fridge for 4-6 hours.
- Add oats, Two Good™ Greek Low Fat yogurt, milk, and spices to a large bowl.
If you’re going to add coffee or MCT powder to the recipe, you can go ahead and add that in now. Stir to combine the ingredients with a spoon.
This makes a delicious “base layer” for your recipe and allows the spices to flavor the yogurt and oats.
- Add a layer of the oatmeal mix to a mason jar
- Add a layer of the peanut butter, as well as any optional ingredients you’d like to layer.
I love layering my ingredients instead of mixing them all together–it looks so satisfying and I love how each bite is a little different.
I layer peanut butter, a few tablespoons of pumpkin puree, a teaspoon of honey or maple syrup, a couple of tablespoons of chia seeds, and even extra pumpkin spice!
Build as many layers in your jar as you’d like, adding your original oats/Greek yogurt/milk layers in between.
- Cover the jars and refrigerate
You could eat these immediately, but I like when they have a chance to sit and the oats soften a bit. I typically refrigerate overnight or at least 4-6 hours.
Sometimes I add extra almond milk before stirring and eating.
How can I adjust the sweetness?
This is where the plain Two Good™ Greek Low Fat yogurt comes in. Unflavored yogurt is less sweet than vanilla, so if you’d like these oats to be less sweet, use the plain Greek yogurt.
What if I want more pumpkin flavor?
You’ll want to add a tablespoon of pumpkin puree to your oats! Make sure it’s not pie filling, which often contains extra sugar and spices. Plain pumpkin puree is best. I like to add this as a layer.
Overnight oats are a super simple meal prep recipe because none of the ingredients break down with refrigerator storage. You can store the oats in the fridge for as long as you’d store opened Greek yogurt in the fridge–about a week.
I’ve frozen jars of overnight oats before when my plans changed and I didn’t want the oats to go to waste.
