Baked Pumpkin & Maple Oatmeal

Until this recipe I had NEVER baked oatmeal. Now that I've made this, I think I have been missing out! I know that maple and pumpkin are a little "out of season" but meh! They are always in season in my books! I love pumpkin! Haha. I also made 2 pumpkin loafs and a dozen pumpkin muffins this week. The pumpkin was frozen leftovers from the fall, taken out for this recipe of course! This recipe is a keeper. Fo sho! Of course the recipe was stolen from someone else! The recipe idea credit goes out to:

Here is what you need to make this yourself! This recipe serves one. When we made it we doubled the recipe. I shall let you decide how much to make :)

  • 1/2 cup oats (50g)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon 
  •  1/8 tsp nutmeg,
  • 1-2 tbsp maple syrup (depending on how sweet you like your oatmeal)
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup milk
  • 1/8 tsp salt
Step one:
In a baking dish mix together the oats, spices, pumpkin, salt, maple syrup, vanilla & milk. Basically mix everything together :)

Step two:
Bake for 20 minutes in a preheated oven at 380F. (Or until it gets firm)

Step three:
Set your oven to broil, and broil the oatmeal for about 3 minutes.
It will give it a nice crispy top!
...And yes, that is icecream you see with my oatmeal ;)

xo have a great night guys!


  1. Looks soooooooo GOOD!

  2. haha.. welcome to the oatmeal world. i was like that as well and then once I started, I couldn't stop eating oatmeal. You'll come up with all these new concoctions. I love pumpkin oatmeal.

    1. Basically since I made this recipe, I've been making oatmeal for breakfast everyday! I'm totally hooked ;)

  3. This looks so tasty! I'm going to have to try it. I've gotten addicted to oatmeal again, with the local maple syrup! Pumpkin would be awesome!

    1. It is really yummy! If you like it more sweet, add more's worth it ;)
