How to make baked pumpkin oatmeal

Step 1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Spray a baking dish with non-stick cooking spray to prevent the oatmeal from sticking to the dish. 

Step 2. Using a wooden spoon, stir together the pumpkin puree and milk in a medium mixing bowl. Add the remaining ingredients, stirring until combined.

Step 3. Pour the mixture into the greased baking dish. Bake for 35-40 minutes, or until the oatmeal pulls away from the edges of the baking dish. A knife or toothpick inserted in the center should come out clean.

My favorite swaps

This recipe can easily be made into delicious pumpkin overnight oats. To do so, mix all ingredients together and divide into four jars or bowls. Let rest in the fridge overnight or for at least 4 hours, then enjoy heated up (or cold!) in the morning.

Make chocolate pumpkin oatmeal by mixing in 3 tablespoons of cocoa powder to the dry ingredients. YUM. 

Enjoy topped with additional cinnamon and mini chocolate chips in a bowl. Splash with a little milk, grab a fork OR spoon, and dig in!

How do I reheat baked oatmeal?

Reheat in the microwave for 45-60 seconds. You can also reheat in the oven at 350 degrees until heated through; this will take about 10-15 minutes.

What kind of milk should I use?

Cow’s milk – 1%, 2%, etc – works well, or you can use a non-dairy alternate such as soy milk or almond milk. If going non-dairy, choose an unsweetened milk.
