OATS: The recipe calls for old fashioned oats, also known as rolled oats, which take less time to cook than steel cut oats. Steel cut oats, or Irish oats, are unprocessed parts of whole oat grains known as oat groats that have been cut into 2 or 3 pieces. Rolled oats have been steamed and rolled so they will cook quicker. While steel cut oats will work, it may need more liquid, plus will give this dish a more chewy texture than rolled oats. It’s not recommended to use quick oats for this recipe.
PUMPKIN: Use canned pumpkin for ease of use, or roast a pumpkin and remove the tasty flesh. Then roast the seeds for a tasty snack or topping! Use canned pumpkin to make other tasty pumpkin treats like pumpkin cranberry bread, pumpkin muffins and baked pumpkin donuts – YUM!

YOGURT: Greek yogurt is thick, creamy and protein rich. It provides that extra boost of energy to help get the day started. Regular yogurt will also work if preferred.
EXTRAS: Pecans, chia seeds and honey provide an interesting array of textures and flavors! Use walnuts or almonds in place of pecans if desired for a heavenly harvest breakfast surprise.
VARIATIONS: Add a shot of espresso to make pumpkin spice latte overnight oats. Or make chocolate pumpkin overnight oats with the addition of a bit of cocoa. Other delicious additions include dried cranberries and chocolate chips.
For a vegan pumpkin pie overnight oats, use a vegan yogurt (such as coconut yogurt) and omit the honey.
