Simple Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

I personally eat oatmeal almost everyday, it’s become a ritual for me. Along with my coffee fix of course. With that being said, I usually cook it on the stove top using quick oats (not the already flavored packets, but from scratch). My new favorite method though is this baked version!

It’s simple to throw together and delicious! You can add whatever you like to it once you have the base made (chocolate chips, raisins, berries, nuts, bananas, etc..). I hope you enjoy this recipe as much as we do!

Mix dry ingredients first.
Pop it in a dish.
Add wet ingredients & mix well.
Bake, cool & enjoy!
Add whatever tasty toppings you’d like! Mix.

Ingredients

  • 2 Cups Rolled Oats (not quick oats)
  • 1 Cup Pumpkin Puree (not the pie filling)
  • 1 1/4 Cup Milk of Choice
  • 1/3 Cup Maple Syrup (or Honey)
  • 2 Tsp Pumpkin Spice
  • 1 Tsp Baking Powder
  • 1/4 Tsp Salt
  • 2 Eggs
  • 2 Tsp Vanilla Extract
  • (Optional) Chocolate Chips, Raisins, Nuts, or Other Toppings of Choice

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375Β°F. Grease an 8×8 baking dish with oil or lay in parchment paper.
  2. In a bowl combine the oats, pumpkin spice, salt, and baking powder. Combine well.
  3. Add milk, eggs, pumpkin puree, vanilla extract, and maple syrup to the bowl. Combine well.
  4. Pour and spread evenly into the baking dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes. Oatmeal will be done baking when edges puff up a little and the top is golden.

Notes

🍩 To make single serves, you could always plop the mix into a cupcake pan.

🍩 I’ve baked this without baking powder and it’s done fine (just in case you don’t have some on hand).

🍩 It’s important to use old fashioned rolled oats instead of quick oats, that way it doesn’t turn into a pile of mush.

🍩 Toppings we used (in case you’re curious) : Walnuts, Cran-raisins and Chocolate Chips with sliced Bananas after it’s baked.
