These baked pumpkin oatmeal cups are the perfect solution for busy mornings. Make a batch during your weekly meal prep and eat them throughout the week!
If you’ve been following EBF for a while you’ll know that I’m in love with all things pumpkin and tend to go crazy for all the pumpkin flavored/scented stuff this time of year. Pumpkin candles, pumpkin soap, all the healthy pumpkin recipes! If it has pumpkin in the name, I’ll probably like it.
Anyhow, I’ve already gone through two cans of pumpkin this month (for pumpkin protein bars and pumpkin oatmeal) so I’ve decided it’s time for another pumpkin recipe.
My latest pumpkin creation is a remake of one of my favorite on-the-go breakfast recipes, these baked oatmeal cups. I used my base recipe as my guide, tweaked it a little and came up with a delicious pumpkin flavored version that’s studded with chocolate chips.
What’s great about this recipe is that you can dress up the oatmeal cups just the way you like them, similar to a bowl of pumpkin oatmeal.
I actually made three different versions — one with walnuts, one with raisins and one with dark chocolate chips. All three paired really well with the pumpkin spice flavor and now that I think about it, I could have just included all three mix-ins in the cups for a fully loaded version.
These baked oatmeal cups taste just like a batch of thick, chewy oats to me. Isaac doesn’t really eat oatmeal and he said that they remind him of kugel. I would have to agree with that as well. Either way, they’re good and perfect for a quick breakfast on-the-go….
