This pumpkin baked oatmeal is the most delicious autumn breakfast. Made with oats, pumpkin, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. It’s simple, nutritious, and gluten-free.
I’m a huge pumpkin fan and I’m also a huge oatmeal fan! So I just love it when it’s pumpkin season because I get to bring two of my favorites together and make this cozy and delicious, pumpkin baked oatmeal.
Baked oatmeal is such an easy breakfast to make and is also perfect for meal prep. When it’s not pumpkin season, you’ll find me making my baked banana oatmeal (it’s delish, btw!). I love the versatility of this breakfast and my family does too!
Baked oatmeal is a nutrient-rich breakfast that is as to make as it is delicious. I love adding pecans and raisins to this dish but you can swap in whatever you love (tip: my kids love chocolate chips but cranberries would also be delightful)!
Baked Oatmeal for Meal Prep
I like to make baked oatmeal as a head start ingredient so I have it ready to go for a busy week (btw, it’s also great for brunch!).
I cut the finished dish into six pieces and then individually store them in an airtight container in my fridge. You can also wrap them in and store them in the freezer.
When I’m ready to eat it, I pop the container in the microwave to reheat (you can also use a toaster oven). These oats are also great cold or at room temperature, so sometimes I’ll take it as a grab-n-go breakfast as well.
Ingredients in Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
- rolled oats (I always recommend organic oatmeal)
- pumpkin pie spice
- unsweetened almond milk – you can swap in any milk you love!
- canned pumpkin – make sure the ingredient list is just pureed pumpkin.
- egg whites – this is the secret to making baked oatmeal super fluffy
- real maple syrup – a lovely natural sweetener and also delicious drizzled over the top.
- pecans – add great texture and some healthy fats.
- raisins – little sweet bits of deliciousness.
How To Make Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
Baked oatmeal is so, super easy to make! Here’s all it takes:
1. Grease baking dish with coconut oil or cooking spray.
2. Stir together oats, oats, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice in a medium bowl.
3. Mix together pumpkin puree, almond milk, egg whites, vanilla, maple syrup, raisins and pecans.
4. Combine the dry ingredients with the wet ingredients and transfer mixture into a prepared baking dish.
4. Bake at 375ºF for 30 minutes or until the oats are set though and lightly golden over the top.
Once the oatmeal is cool enough to enjoy, serve and enjoy with a little extra maple syrup over the top (or with a dollop of Greek yogurt).
