Attention all pumpkin and oatmeal lovers! Get ready to enjoy the delightful combination of these two flavors with our Wholesome Pumpkin-Baked Oatmeal. This recipe has it all— it’s easy, healthy, and delicious!
Pumpkin season is a favorite of mine, and I can’t help but get excited about the easy and nutritious recipes you can create using canned or fresh pumpkin puree. From creamy pumpkin smoothies to handheld pumpkin spice oatmeal muffins to energizing pumpkin energy balls, there’s no shortage of tasty options. But let’s not forget about the star of the show—the irresistible pumpkin-baked oats!
When it comes to breakfast, baked oatmeal is a winner in terms of ease and convenience. It’s easy-peasy to prepare and perfect for meal prepping. And have no fear, because when pumpkin season is over, you can transition to my baked banana oatmeal (which is great any time of the year!).
So, gather your ingredients, and let’s make some Wholesome Pumpkin-Baked Oatmeal!
Baked oatmeal is a nutrient-rich breakfast that is as easy to make as it is delicious. I love adding pecans and raisins to this dish but you can swap in whatever you love. 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 – warm and cozy
- unsweetened almond milk – you can swap in any milk you love!
- canned pumpkin – make sure the ingredient list is just pureed pumpkin. Use up the rest of the pumpkin puree by making these pumpkin chocolate chip cookies!
- 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 the 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 the mixture into a prepared baking dish.
4. Bake at 375ºF for 30 minutes or until the oats are set through 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).

I don’t usually take time to eat breakfast. I found this recipe at 10pm, and whipped it up for breakfast for the week. I did not have maple syrup, so I used molasses, and as a rule, always double whatever spice I’m told to use. I also added 1/4 cup of brown sugar, I usually like my oatmeal a lot sweeter, but this was perfect. Thank you for publishing this recipe!
I made it and ate it all week for breakfast. So amazing. Im making it again this week along with the Samoa cookies.

I tired my hand at this and it turned out to be super delicious and off course healthy too.The cake like texture and taste of pumpkin spice just satisfied all the taste buds.Yummy!!!Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Delicious!! I added semi sweet chocolate chips on top. Will definitely make again!
I never cooked with pumpkin so I was wondering if I can use fresh pumpkin and what is pumpkin pie spice? It might be popular in US but I don’t think we have it in Britain. Hope you can help. Thanks
Thank you for the great recipe! I prepared it the evening before and baked it in the morning. The changes that I made were adding a tsp of cinnamon (I love cinnamon!), reducing the milk to one cup (my fresh pumpkin was runny), and using a whole egg. I didn’t have raisins and I sprinkled the pecans on top. We served it with almond milk and extra maple syrup poured over top. I just realized I baked it at 350 for 30 minutes, instead of 375, but it was perfect! (probably because I added less milk)
P.S. In step 7, carefully and pieces have a typo 🙂
It’s my pleasure! I’m so glad you enjoy it – your changes sound delicious.

Delicious! Surprisingly simple and super tasty. Has a bit of a custard/bread pudding texture that I love. I had roasted butternut squash leftovers so I puréed and used it to replace the pumpkin purée. Perfect!
OMG Dani! I am in love with this recipe. I just made it and am sitting down with a delicious slice with my morning coffee. I love that it is not too sweet and the calories are low but it is filled with fiber to keep me full. Can’t wait till the rest of the family tries it. Thanks again for another winner! Happy Fall
