Common Questions

what type of salt do you use?

I use Redmond Real Salt, please note that depending on the salt you use, your dish may be less or more salty. Salt is to taste, so please always taste and adjust as you cook.

Can I make Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats vegan or dairy-free?

Yes, you can certainly make this recipe vegan or dairy-free by using any dairy-free yogurt that you enjoy. You can also substitute the yogurt and water altogether and add some almond or plant milk instead. You need 1/2 cup of your preferred plant milk to substitute for the yogurt and water in the Pumpkin Spice Overnight Oats. 

Can I eat the oats warmed up?

These oats are meant to be eaten cold, but if you add plant milk instead of yogurt and water, you can heat them up on the stove if you wish. 

What type of jar do you use for your overnight oats?

I use the 250ml wide-mouth jar, but you can use any jar you’d like or even a bowl.

How long will the oats last in the fridge?

Pumpkin Pie Overnight Oats typically last in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. This makes them a great option for meal prep, allowing you to prepare several servings in advance. To ensure the best taste and texture, I recommend consuming them within this timeframe.

How can I make pumpkin pie spice?

To make pumpkin pie spice, mix 1.5 tablespoons of ground cinnamon, 1 teaspoon ground ginger, 1 teaspoon ground nutmeg, 1/2 teaspoon all-spice, and 1/2 teaspoon ground cloves.

Hi! I'm Sneji. Nice to meet you!

I am more commonly known as “The Modern Nonna” on social media where I create easy home cooked meals with a modern twist. I was born and raised in Sofia, Bulgaria and learned how to cook at the best culinary school in the world – my grandma’s kitchen. I lived in Greece on the Island of Crete with my parents for a while and then moved to Toronto, Canada when I was in grade 5. I started to really cook and experiment with food 11 years ago when I was 21 years old. Everything I currently know is a reflection of some part of my life…
