Pumpkin Pie Bake Oatmeal

So – Pumpkin Pie for Breakfast?

baked pumpkin pie oatmealWHY NOT, especially when the “Pie” you are eating is filled with healthy, hearty oats! If you are a fan of Oatmeal, I know that you will love this baked oatmeal. This can be made over the weekend, cut into portions and then reheated throughout the week. If you are entertaining a crowd – this dish would be great to serve for a perfect seasonal breakfast (just bake the whole thing until almost all done, put in the refrigerator overnight, and then re-heat while it finishes cooking when you are ready to serve).

This season, it seems that pumpkin is the go-to squash. Like other fall/winter squash – pumpkin is so easily adaptable to sweet OR savory recipes. Why not start a whole Squash-Day with this Oatmeal and then move onto other seasonal favorites!

Instructions
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spray a 2-quart dish (I made in my large rectangle Pyrex) with cooking spray. In a large bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, brown sugar, maple syrup, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Whisk in the milk until very smooth. Stir in the oats and spread evenly in the prepared dish.
  2. Cover the dish with foil and bake for about 30 minutes. Remove foil and bake for about 15 minutes more until set. Can be eaten hot out of the oven, or covered, refrigerated and reheated.
  3. Top with whipped cream maple syrup (and nuts) if desired.

    • So wonderful – and I bet it would be perfect if cooked softer (or made without eggs) to start adding to the diet of your little one!

  1. We made this today and it was great, but of course did make some minor changes. Substitute honey for the sugar, and add nuts and raisins while baking. Make sure to use at least a 9×13 pan though, as we used a smaller pan and it took much longer to bake through.
