Recipe Ingredients

OATS: Old-fashioned rolled oats will definitely give you the best results. They are perfect for baking with. I don’t recommend using instant oats because it will create a different, mushier texture.

PUMPKIN: 1 cup of real pumpkin puree is combined with pumpkin pie spice to create the perfect Fall flavor.

BAKING INGREDIENTS: Honey, milk, eggs, baking powder, vanilla extract and salt are all added for delicious baked oats.

VARIATIONS: Add in ½ cup of chopped nuts, dried raisins, dried cranberries, shredded coconut, or chocolate chips for even more flavor!

How To Make Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

  1. Mix ingredients together in a large mixing bowl and let sit to absorb liquid according to the full instructions in the recipe card below.
  2. Pour the oatmeal mixture into a casserole dish then bake until golden brown.
  3. Slice into squares, serve and enjoy!

Leftover pumpkin spiced oats can be stored in an airtight container in the fridge for up to 4-5 days. These baked oats also freeze well! Simply store in a freezer bag, removing all the excess air and sealing tightly. These will keep frozen for up to 6 months.

Leftovers can be popped in the microwave or toaster oven to heat up and serve.

Recipe Tips

  • After mixing all the ingredients, let the oats sit for 10 minutes. This will help the oats to absorb the liquid and become soft.
  • Avoid quick oats or steel cut oats. The texture just won’t be the same.
  • Make your own homemade pumpkin spice flavor using 2 teaspoon ground cinnamon, ½ teaspoon ground nutmeg, ½ teaspoon ground ginger, ¼ teaspoon ground cloves, ¼ teaspoon ground allspice.
  • Lightly grease the baking dish with nonstick cooking spray or a bit of vegetable oil on a paper towel. This will help prevent the oats from sticking too much to the dish.
  • TOPPING IDEAS: Serve with a dollop of whipped cream, plain greek yogurt, vanilla ice cream or whipped coconut cream. Drizzle pure maple syrup overtop, add your favorite jam, fresh butter, melted chocolate, or sprinkle with chopped nuts for added crunch.

Would it be ok to use regular milk instead of buttermilk?
