The best cozy fall breakfast, this pumpkin baked oatmeal is made with oats, pumpkin, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice and cinnamon. It’s vegan and gluten-free.
It’s pumpkin season!!! Who’s excited?! I am such a pumpkin fan I actually enjoy pumpkin treats year round. Yes, grocery stores sell pumpkin puree all year long… not just in the fall. Perfect for those of us who don’t limit our pumpkin consumption to a few months a year.
Anyhow, I’m sure you’ve noticed, but there’s a baked oatmeal theme around here lately and each month I release a new seasonal baked oatmeal recipe. Last month was apple cinnamon baked oatmeal (which is delish, btw) and now it’s time to break out the pumpkin and make this pumpkin baked oatmeal!
As you know, baked oatmeal is a nutrient rich breakfast, super easy to make AND can be prepped in advance for a delicious weekend brunch or healthy breakfasts all week.
Baked Oatmeal for Meal Prep
I like to make a baked oatmeal on Sunday and then portion out daily servings into glass storage containers to place in the fridge. Every morning I can just open the fridge, pop the baked oatmeal in the microwave or toaster oven to reheat and boom! I’ve got a breakfast that I’m excited about. You know, the one that you think about as you’re falling asleep?
Who said healthy food has to be boring?!
I let the pumpkin spices do the talkin’ in this recipe, but if you want to add some flavors, I think chocolate chips and/or dried cranberries would be great additions! You’ll have to let me know if you try one of these…
