Oat milk – which was recently added to the Merriam-Webster dictionary – is everywhere. And pumpkin spice is also seemingly everywhere, at least this time of year.

Oat milk brand Planet Oat has designed a recipe for the meeting of the two ingredients: Pumpkin spice overnight oats.

This recipe takes only five minutes to prep and yields four servings, making it great for meal prep purposes if you’re planning ahead, or for a Saturday breakfast at home with the family.

The best part? Overnight oats are adjustable to your own taste. So, if you don’t want to use maple syrup, use honey – or, if you want to serve without yogurt, you can nix that, too.
