There's something so satisfying waking up knowing that your breakfast is already ready, you know? Like that stressor is just completely gone. You just gotta roll out of bed, get yourself together for the day and open your fridge. Breakfast done!

That's one of the reasons I love meal prep recipes. They just make life easier and more efficient.  Heck, we're all busy, so anything we can do to save time and still eat well is a bonus in my mind.

But I don't need to sell you on the idea of meal prep. You probably already know much it rocks. Instead, let's talk about today's amazing meal prep friendly recipe. Pumpkin Pie Quinoa Overnight Oats. Basically overnight oats, with a fall twist and some healthy additions. It's so easy to make and seriously so delicious!

Ingredients for Quinoa Overnight Oats

Basically this recipe is your standard overnight oats recipe with some quinoa thrown in. The benefit, of course, is that we're getting extra protein, extra fiber, and the vitamin and mineral boost that quinoa brings to the table. (check out our quinoa nutrition facts page to see)

We're starting with our base which is pumpkin puree, almond milk, maple syrup and a splash of vanilla. It sets the tone for our quinoa overnight oats and makes it just the right amount of sweet.

From there, we're adding the rest of our ingredients:

You just mix it all together, let it sit for a good 20 minutes (or overnight!), and you're breakfast is ready. High protein, high fiber, full of warm spices and tastes like a slice of pumpkin pie!

Overnight Quinoa is the New Overnight Oats

We've made a few overnight quinoa recipes before on the blog, and have changed up the combinations every time. Sometimes we use quinoa flakes. Other times it's just cooked quinoa. Sometimes it's a blend of the two. Oh and then other times we use oats in the mix.

But I have to say the combo that we have today is the best. We're essentially getting the tenderness from overnight oats, with a better texture from the quinoa and no bitterness from the quinoa flakes. Plus, by adding quinoa we're amping up the protein and fiber which makes the breakfast more filling and satisfying.

Pro tip: when you add protein and fiber to your morning meals, you stay fuller for longer and have more sustained energy throughout the day!

A High Protein Vegan Breakfast Recipe

One of the things that I know plant-based eaters struggle with is protein. I have a guide for the best sources of plant-based protein, but for breakfast, I stick to a few of my staples. Especially if I'm making a sweet breakfast.

The best vegan proteins for breakfast are:

  • protein powder
  • quinoa
  • nut butter

And in our pumpkin pie quinoa overnight oats, we're using all three! It's a high protein, time-saving, super delicious vegan breakfast that I think you're going to make all autumn long. I mean really…how can we say no to pumpkin pie!?
