Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats

Everything you love about your favorite Fall morning latte is in these Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats!  This is an easy recipe for creamy vegan and gluten free overnight oats made with pumpkin puree, Fall spices, and topped with a spiced Latte coffee whipped cream.  

Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats

I always see controversy around the trendy pumpkin spice latte.  Some people don’t like it, other’s like it but it arrives on scene way too early, and then there are those who drink it all year round.  Funny thing is I always see some of those nay-sayers with a PSL in their hand at some point in the season!

For me, breakfast shouldn’t be controversial.  Which is why I took the popularity of the beloved morning drink and transformed it into these Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats.   This pumpkin spice latte comes with some added features though:

  • Gluten Free – The oats and oat milk in these overnight oats are gluten free.    
  • Vegan – Maple syrup, oat milk, and canned coconut milk keep these overnight oats vegan.
  • Pumpkin Puree – Pumpkin spice overnight oats should include actual pumpkin!  Pure pumpkin puree plus pumpkin pie spices make these oats even tastier than the trendy morning coffee.
  • Canned Coconut Milk – The coconut solids from a can of coconut milk make these overnight oats extra creamy!
  • Coffee Whipped Cream – The remainder of the coconut cream is used to make the whipped cream topping.  Which happens to be flavored with instant coffee granules to bring the latte flavor to these overnight oats.

What Kind Of Oats Should I Use For Overnight Oats

I recommend rolled oats, which can also be referred to as ‘old-fashioned’ oats.  This is because they have a consistent texture and size when compared to other types of breakfast oats.

  • Instant oats vs. Rolled oats – Rolled oats are larger than instant (quick oats), so they retain their texture when soaked overnight.  Instant oats are great when they come in the little packets that already have the seasoning in them!
  • Steel cut oats vs. Rolled oats – Rolled oats are not as firm ad chewy as steel cut oats.  Steel cut oats are great when they are cooked and you want a thick porridge-like breakfast.

What You Need To Make Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats

Ingredients

  • Gluten Free Rolled Oats – You can find gluten free oats in the grocery, health food stores, or Amazon.  I like to use Bob’s Red Mill Gluten Free Rolled Oats.
  • Pumpkin Puree – We use a can of pure pumpkin puree and not pumpkin pie filling.  You will have leftovers and there are a few Pumpkin Recipes on the blog that you can make with the extra!
  • Canned Coconut Milk – I like to use the coconut solids from a can of coconut milk to make the overnight oats extra creamy.  You can also substitute your favorite yogurt.
  • Pure Maple Syrup – We use pure maple syrup for the warm, buttery flavor.   And also because the overnight oats are vegan.  You can also substitute any sweetener of choice.
  • Oat Milk – Oat milk adds to the oat flavor!  Or use any milk you prefer.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice – For all of the flavors you love in your pumpkin spice latte!
  • Ground Cinnamon – The cinnamon is optional to sprinkle on top of the oats before serving.
  • Instant Coffee Granules – This is important because we want coffee granules and not coffee grounds.  Coffee granules have already been brewed into coffee, then dehydrated.  This makes them more palatable as they nearly dissolve when added to the whipped cream.
  • Vanilla Extract or Vanilla Powder – I like to use vanilla powder in no-bake recipes because it doesn’t have the alcohol flavor you find in vanilla extract.  However, vanilla extract works just as well.

Tips For Making Pumpkin Spice Latte Overnight Oats

  • Use rolled oats – Rolled oats will retain their soft texture and size when soaked overnight.
  • Try oat milk! – I use oat milk well, because these are overnight oats and it just seems fitting!  In all seriousness, oat milk is creamy and has a light, sweet taste – and yes, the brand I linked is gluten free.  Though any milk you prefer will work.
  • Use pure pumpkin puree and NOT pumpkin pie filling – Pumpkin pie filling already has sugars and spices in it.  We don’t want that because we are adding our own spices and sweetener.
  • Canned coconut milk OR yogurt – The coconut solids from a can of unsweetened coconut milk gives the oats a thick and creamy consistency.  And they are neutral in flavor, whereas yogurt will add tang.  
  • Any sweetener will work – I like using maple syrup for its warm and buttery flavor.  However, any sweetener you prefer will work.
  • Refrigerate the oats overnight – Seems obvious, but you do want to give the oats some time to develop flavor, and soften into a thick and creamy breakfast.  
  • Warm or cold oats – If you prefer to eat your oats warm, you can certainly warm them in the microwave the next day.
  • Use instant coffee granules – Instant coffee granules are actually brewed coffee that has been dehydrated into little pieces.  This makes them much tastier when adding them to the whipped cream.  As opposed to coffee grounds, which would be just like chewing on unbrewed coffee from the bag.
  • Double or triple the recipe – If you want to make a larger batch of overnight oats, this recipe is easily doubled.  Otherwise, as written this recipe serves two.

You can! If you prefer to eat the overnight oats warm, simply warm them in the microwave after they have soaked overnight.

Will any kind of oats work best for the overnight oats?

I recommend rolled oats because they will retain a pleasant size and texture when soaked overnight. The result is thick and creamy oats, that are not mushy.

If you prefer not to use the coconut milk to make the overnight oats creamy, you can swap in yogurt. Keep in mind the extra coconut solids are used to make the coffee whipped cream.

Yes! Any milk you like to drink will work.

Why do I have to use instant coffee granules in the whipped cream?

Instant coffee granules are made by brewing coffee, then dehydrating it. Which makes it much more pleasant to eat when added to the whipped cream because it almost dissolves into the whipped cream. As opposed to coffee grounds, which would be just like eating, coffee grounds.

Equipment

  • 2 – Serving Glasses or Bowls

Ingredients

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

  • 1/3 cup pure canned pumpkin
  • 1/3 cup unsweetened canned coconut milk - refrigerated overnight; only the cream in the can
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup - or any sweetener of choice; sweeten to taste
  • 1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup oat milk - or any milk of choice
  • 1 cup, plus 2 tablespoons rolled oats, gluten free

Coffee Whipped Cream Topping

  • 1 teaspoon instant coffee granules
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract or vanilla powder
  • remainder of canned coconut milk - only the cream in the can
  • 2 to 3 tablespoons pure maple syrup - or any sweetener of choice; sweeten to taste
  • ground cinnamon - optional to dust on top

Instructions

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

  • Plan Ahead – Refrigerate the can of coconut milk overnight. We are only using the coconut solids from the can.
  • In a small mixing bowl, stir together the pumpkin, coconut cream, maple syrup, and pumpkin pie spice until thoroughly incorporated. Add the oat milk and stir until smooth.
  • Sprinkle the oats into the liquid and stir to combine. Cover and refrigerate the oats at least overnight.

Coffee Whipped Cream Topping

  • In a spice grinder, add the coffee granules, pumpkin pie spice, and vanilla powder (if using). Pulse until the coffee is ground to a powder.
  • If you don't have a spice grinder – A coffee bean grinder will work, or place the coffee granules in a plastic bag and crush with your hand or a rolling pin. We want the coffee granules to be ground to a powder so you don't bite into a large piece of dehydrated coffee! Mix the coffee powder with the pumpkin pie spice and vanilla powder (if using).
  • In a small mixing bowl, add the remaining coconut cream solids from the can of coconut milk and maple syrup. Using a hand held mixer fitted with the whisk attachments, beat the coconut cream on high speed until you have light whipped cream – this can take about 3 to 5 minutes.
  • Sprinkle the coffee powder into the whipped cream and mix to combine. Cover the whipped cream and refrigerate until ready to use. Note – The whipped cream will set up a little firmer if refrigerated overnight.
  • To serve – Portion the overnight oats into serving glasses (or bowls) and top with the Latte Whipped Cream. Sprinkle a little cinnamon on the top and Enjoy!

Notes

  • Oats – I recommend rolled oats because of their size and texture.  You don’t have to use Gluten Free oats if the recipe does not need to be gluten free.
  • Oat Milk – The oat milk is a nice flavor compliment to the oats.  Although you can use any milk you prefer.
  • Maple Syrup – You can use any sweetener of choice.  
  • Coconut Milk/Cream – To make the overnight oats creamy AND to make successful whipped cream – the can of coconut milk should be refrigerated overnight.  You can swap the coconut cream with yogurt in the overnight oats, and omit the whipped cream topping if you prefer.
  • Pumpkin – Depending on the brand, canned pumpkin can have different names, but is the same thing:  Pumpkin Puree, Pure Pumpkin, 100% Pumpkin, Organic Pure Pumpkin.  Just be sure it is not Pumpkin Pie Filling
