Tips to Make the Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats
All set to make these overnight oats? You might want to keep some of these additional tips in mind to nail the recipe.
- While you could use practically any kind of oats for this recipe, rolled oats are undoubtedly the best choice. They absorb all the liquid in the recipe in just the right way, which steel-cut or quick-cooking oats don’t.
- Regardless of the type of milk, you are using for this recipe, make sure it is unsweetened, otherwise, your overnight oats will turn overly sweet.
- Similarly, if you are using canned pumpkin puree, make sure you choose an unsweetened version.
- The vanilla extract can really help enhance the flavor of the overnight oats, so don’t forget to use it. An extra pinch of sea salt into the mix can work wonders too!
- Make sure you give the oats a quick stir the next morning when you’re actually going to have it. If it seems too thick, you can loosen it up by adding a bit of milk.
- For some extra crunch and deliciousness, don’t forget to top the overnight oats with some granola and dried berries too.
Serving Ideas & Suggestions
While overnight oats taste best when served cold, you can also warm it up a bit in the microwave if that’s what you prefer. Serve it in a nice little bowl, topped with your choice of toppings, or stick to the mason jar if you don’t want all the extra dishes.
If you want, you can also drizzle some chocolate sauce or sprinkle some unsweetened cocoa powder on the top for a depth of flavor.
