If you’re looking for a scrumptious and nutritious breakfast that’s perfect for the fall season, look no further than our Overnight Pumpkin Spice Oats Parfait.
This delightful parfait combines the warm and comforting flavors of pumpkin spice with the goodness of oats and yogurt.
Plus, it’s incredibly easy to prepare, making it an ideal breakfast option for busy mornings. Let’s dive into this flavorful and wholesome recipe!
For the Pumpkin Spice Oats:
- 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
- 1 cup milk (dairy or non-dairy)
- 1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
- 2 tablespoons honey or maple syrup
- 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
- 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
- A pinch of salt
1. Prepare the Pumpkin Spice Oats
In a mixing bowl, combine the rolled oats, milk, canned pumpkin puree, honey or maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, and a pinch of salt.
Stir everything together until well combined.
Cover the bowl with plastic wrap or a lid and refrigerate overnight (or for at least 4 hours) to allow the oats to soften and soak up the flavors.
2. Assemble the Parfait
In the morning, take the chilled pumpkin spice oats out of the refrigerator.
In serving glasses or jars, start by adding a layer of the pumpkin spice oats.
Next, add a layer of Greek yogurt on top of the oats.
Sprinkle some granola over the yogurt layer for a delightful crunch.
Add chopped nuts and dried cranberries or raisins for extra texture and flavor.
Repeat the layering process with the remaining ingredients, finishing with a dollop of Greek yogurt on top.
3. Garnish and Serve
For a fresh and vibrant touch, garnish your parfait with fresh berries or sliced bananas.
Drizzle a little extra honey or maple syrup on top if you like it sweeter.
Grab a long spoon and dig in, making sure to get a little bit of each layer in every bite.

- The crisp cool weather that we enjoyed for a few days has been replaced by warm humidity, so it once again feels like summer (which, yes I know, is the season we are still in).
- I loved the pumpkin overnight oats parfait that I shared with you in Monday’s post so much that I thought it deserved its own post, complete with actual (i.e. not iPhone Instagram) photographs.
This parfait is the perfect breakfast for those of you who – like me – are just itching for fall-inspired treats, but are still craving cold and refreshing eats.
My food moods are absolutely dependent on the weather; so as long as the mornings are warm, I will be eating cold breakfasts like this one.
I typically make overnight oats with banana slices chilling right along with the other ingredients, but the banana soft serve that this recipe calls for will make your breakfast feel like dessert.
Plus, the layering parfait technique is SO much prettier than a blah (photogenically speaking) bowl of mush.
I added some crumbled graham crackers for flavor and appearance… but even more so for texture. Although my cold-weather classic breakfast of hot stovetop oats isn’t complete with a spoonful (or two) of nut butter, a crunchy or crispy topping is the way I roll for overnight oats.
I apologize for putting the mystery (unless you’re a fan of HFFL on Facebook, that is) pumpkin baked good on hold, but I promise you it’ll be worth the wait!
And in the meantime, you can get your pumpkin fix with this breakfast parfait.
