Pecan Pie Overnight Oats
A lighter, HEALTHIER take during the holidays! You can prep everything ahead of time. Just serve into a bowl and top with pecans!
I am doing my best to take it easy during breakfast time.
Because at night, we still have some major holiday leftovers lingering around.
So in an attempt to stay in “shape” during this winter, I’m having pecan pie in a bowl.
And guess what?
The oats? It’s overnight oats!
So simply soak your oats overnight.
Then top with your Fisher Nuts pecan pie mixture.
It’s preservative free and non-GMO Project Verified.
Now you can have Thanksgiving and Christmas anytime for breakfast.
Just without the need for stretchy pants.

Love love love this! I am not an oatmeal fan but this soooooo good! I did warm it up a bit, I felt weird eating it cold. I have yet to find a recipe of yours I dont like. Thank you!
How much oats is in one service size?
Also do I need to leave the pecans in the ice box or can I leave them out after it’s cooked?
Would love to serve this for a large crowd. Can you double or triple the amount in the crock pot? And how much additional cooking time would be required?
These overnight oats are fabulous. Delicious, easy, and pretty healthy!
Breakfast is my favorite meal so to have pecans, maple syrup, and cinnamon on my oatmeal sounds like a wonderful morning meal. Looking forward to making this one.
This was really good! And I never would have thought of putting pecans in oatmeal. Mmm. I did think it was too sweet though, especially for breakfast – next time, I’ll leave out the brown sugar and cut down the maple syrup to 1 tblsp.
I love the idea of prepping the night before, but I cannot get used to cold oatmeal.
Could this be heated in the morning?
Yes, you can warm the oats in the microwave for a minute or two if you’d like (before topping with the pecan mixture).
I’m about to try my first pumpkin recipe of the season kind excited about it! looks great! I am def a morning person, although the weather in Portland at the moment has been making me want to stay in bed all day! so rainy and gloomy!
I have been wanting to try overnight oats for some time. I really enjoys the topping but found the oats very bland. I also only got three servings out of this. Otherwise, I feel like it would not have been enough to sustain me on it’s own. So, the sugar content probably did not make it worthy of my diet. I love all your recipes! I just think if you expect this to be like Quaker instant oatmeal, it’s definitely not that.
Meagan, the oats are meant to be eaten with the topping, not on its own! And no, there are no claims here for this to be like Quaker instant oatmeal. It’s homemade! 🙂
Can I use quick oats? I don’t want to buy another container of oats.
I made a giant batch of the pecan mixture on Sunday night, and have been making individual portions of overnight oats and eating these every morning for breakfast this week. The pecan mixture is SO GOOD. A+ oatmeal mix-in!
Holy cow this looks yum!
Looks delicious! I recently found your site, love your work here!
Q, what is the difference between the pecan here listed as ingredients vs the raw pecan in Cinnamon sugar candied nuts? Am I supposed to buy the raw pecan for both recipes?
Yes, raw pecans are best to use!
thanks for this, it’s nice to have a tasty go to morning snack that isn’t super-heavy!
Omg yum! would love to try this for breakfast (:
looks amazing! especially during this cold weather.
check out my blog if you have a moment to spear :https://charlieslifeandfood.wordpress.com
Yummm! This looks like the perfect breakfast on a cold morning!
Looks DELICIOUS! Can I Prepare the pecan pie mixture the night before also or should it only be made fresh?
Yes, you can make it ahead of time!
What’s wrong with GMO?
Nothing, just a buzzword
Some folks would prefer to not use genetically modified food. Not so much a buzzword as it is simply sharing information that some would want to have. Same as letting people know that something was raised without antibiotics, chemicals, or if it has animal by products, soy, gluten, etc…
This sounds nice, but dont you cook oats and serve hot?
Overnight oats is a little bit different than oatmeal – it’s meant to be served cold!
Can I make thus with steel oats… only have that in the house right now
2/3 cups oats for 1 cup liquid is a ratio that makes really firm oatmeal. Next time I make it I wont put more than 1/2 cup oats, maybe a little less.
