Did you know tomorrow is National Oatmeal Day? I know, it seems like there is a day for everything, but National Oatmeal Day is one you don’t want to miss. Oatmeal is our favorite breakfast so we celebrate every day, but tomorrow I am making one of our all-time favorite oatmeal recipes, Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal, with Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, because it is a special day. I can’t wait to wake up tomorrow, I am already excited for breakfast 🙂

Quaker believes that everyone should begin each morning prepared for the good things that lie ahead. That’s why for National Oatmeal Day, they are giving away up to one million bowls of oatmeal to help give people across the country the best start to their day.

Baked oatmeal is a great breakfast because you make it in a pan and then reheat it throughout the week. It is so easy to make and the entire family loves it, especially my Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal. The pumpkin spice flavor with a hint of maple and brown sugar is delicious! The dried cranberries add a nice pop of color and sweetness too!

Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal Recipe

Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

Baked oatmeal made with pumpkin, brown sugar, maple syrup, pumpkin pie spice, and dried cranberries. This is a great breakfast for fall!

Yield: Serves 6

Prep Time: 10 minutes

Cook Time: 30-35 minutes

Total Time: 45 minutes

Ingredients:

2 cups Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
1/4 cup light brown sugar
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 teaspoon baking powder
1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1 1/2 cups milk (I've used skim and almond, both work great)
1/2 cup pure pumpkin (not pumpkin pie filling)
2 tablespoons pure maple syrup
1 large egg
3 tablespoons melted butter, cooled to room temperature
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/3 cup dried cranberries

Directions:

1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease an 8x8 square baking dish and set aside.

2. In a medium bowl, mix together the oats, brown sugar, baking powder, salt, and pumpkin pie spice.

3. In another medium bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin, maple syrup, egg, butter, and vanilla extract.

4. Pour the milk mixture over the oats and stir until combined. Stir in the dried cranberries. Pour oat mixture into prepared baking dish.

5. Bake for 30-35 minutes, until the top is golden and oatmeal is set. Let cool for 5 minutes. Spoon into bowls and serve warm.

Note-this baked oatmeal is great reheated in the microwave. I always add a splash of milk after reheating to liven it up. This recipe can easily be doubled for a 9x13 pan.
