Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

How do you eat baked oatmeal?

Homemade baked oatmeal is a cross between a bowl of oatmeal and a breakfast bar.  Firm enough to eat out of your hand but just as nice on a plate warmed in the microwave with a dollop of yogurt or whipped cream.  It has a chewy texture when cooked so skip the spoon if you are in a hurry!

Make this Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal the night before!

The great thing about this pumpkin spice oatmeal recipe is that you can keep it overnight in the fridge before baking.  There are no eggs in it and no leavening agents to worry about. 

So, if you know you want to have a healthy breakfast but your mornings are chaotic, mix the batter the night before.  Then, just spread it into your greased pan, bake, and serve!

As it bakes, the cinnamon, cloves, and nutmeg just make the kitchen smell like heaven!  When your kids smell this baking, they will get THEMSELVES out of bed just to come down and eat it!

Do you have to refrigerate baked oatmeal?

You will end up with an 8-inch by 8-inch pan of homemade baked oatmeal.  That will be plenty for several days so how you do store leftovers?  Leftover baked oatmeal keeps for several days in the refrigerator.   

Just put foil over your baking pan and put it in the fridge when it is cool.  Or, you can cut your baked pumpkin oatmeal recipe into bars and store it in a plastic container with a lid.

To warm up your leftovers, put a square of it on your plate and microwave for about 30 seconds or so.  If it isn’t warm enough, put it in for another 30 seconds.  Then, top with whipped cream or vanilla yogurt, and enjoy! 

If you want to enjoy your healthy baked oatmeal on the go, just grab a bar and run.  It will be a little bit denser when it is cold but still delicious! You can also store pieces in the freezer if you want to make up a double batch.

Tips for making baked oatmeal

Baked oatmeal is a delicious, easy, and healthy breakfast. It’s also very versatile. Here are some tips to get you started on making the most delicious baked oatmeal.

Use Rolled Oats Instead of Instant Oats

Rolled oats are more nutrient-dense than instant oats, so they are a better choice for baking. They will also give your baked oatmeal a heartier texture and better flavor. 

Add Some Protein

Adding protein to your baked oatmeal will not only boost its nutritional value but also help keep you full longer. Try adding additional nuts, chia seeds, flaxseeds, hemp hearts, or protein powder for extra protein. 

Get Creative with Toppings

Toppings are the best part of baked oatmeal! Get creative with adding toppings such as fresh fruit (berries or sliced banana), coconut flakes, chopped nuts, nut butter drizzle, honey, or maple syrup. The possibilities are endless! Just be sure not to overdo it since toppings can add up quickly calorie-wise if you’re not careful.
