The following recipe and photography was provided by recipe developer and food photographer, Ashley Durand of Plate & Pen.

I have a confession… I have never had overnight oats. I’ve eaten oatmeal probably a thousand times, but never this and now that I’ve tried it, I realize what I’ve been missing. It’s so easy! The standard recipe uses yogurt, but I used a tofu mousse instead! Don’t knock it until you try it!

Pumpkin Overnight Oats

I love pumpkin season, so I wanted to use some pumpkin puree with this recipe. The only issue that I typically have with pumpkin in sweet dishes is that it’s not sweet enough, so I used agave nectar and bananas to make it an oh-so nice and cheery morning breakfast!

Ingredients

  • 16 oz. firm tofu
  • 2 ripe bananas
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (for step 3)
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree (for step 6)
  • 2 Tbsp. whipped cream cheese
  • 1 tsp. vanilla extract
  • 1 tsp. ground cinnamon
  • 2 Tbsp. agave nectar
  • 1 cup rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup agave nectar (for layering)

Instructions

  1. Place tofu in a food processor and blend until creamy.
  2. Add bananas and process until smooth.
  3. Add the agave nectar, vanilla extract and  1/4 cup of pumpkin puree and blend until smooth.
  4. To build the layers, I recommend using a large Mason jar. See the picture above for layer reference!
  5. Start by adding the pecans to the bottom of the Mason jar.
    Scoop a cup of tofu mixture over the pecans.
  6. Add 1/2 cup of pumpkin puree followed by the second measurement of agave nectar.
  7. Pour the oats until they reach the top of the jar. Make sure there is a little space left at the top so that you can stir.
  8. Stick a large spoon down to the bottom of the jar to dredge up the bottom layer of pecans and mix until all layers are combined.
  9. Place in the fridge overnight. This mixture can last in up to 5 days.
