Baked Oatmeal Makes an Easy Breakfast
Baked oatmeal is a great breakfast because you make it in ONE 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! The flavors scream fall!
To reheat the baked oatmeal, just pop it in the microwave for 20 seconds or so and enjoy. You can also add a splash of milk to your bowl, that is my favorite way to eat it. And if you want to go all out you can even add a little extra brown sugar or maple syrup to your bowl. Then you will think you are eating pumpkin pie for breakfast and that is a very good thing:)
Tips for Making Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
- Make sure you use old fashioned oats. If you need the baked oatmeal to be gluten free, you can use gluten free oats.
- You can use regular milk or almond milk for this recipe. I like to use unsweetened vanilla almond milk.
- Use pure pumpkin puree, not pumpkin pie filling. You can find canned pumpkin at any grocery store in the baking aisle.
- Use pure maple syrup, the good stuff!
- If you don’t want to use melted butter, you can use melted coconut oil. Both work great!
- Dried cranberries add a nice pop of color and sweetness. You can use raisins too or leave them out. You can also stir in chocolate chips if you want an extra special breakfast. Pumpkin and chocolate, always a good idea!
- You can easily double this baked oatmeal recipe if you are feeding a crowd!
