Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal
Recipe type: Breakfast
Total time: 
Serves: 8
Baked oatmeal is so easy to throw together, so healthy, and can be made ahead, perfect for a busy morning!
  • 3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats (not instant or quick cooking oats)
  • ⅓ cup brown sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • 1½ teaspoon cinnamon
  • ½ teaspoon ginger
  • 3 eggs
  • ½ cup pumpkin puree
  • ¼ cup olive oil
  • 1½ cups milk
  • ½ teaspoon vanilla
  1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together all ingredients in a large bowl and pour into a well greased 9x13" baking dish. Bake for 25 minutes or until knife inserted in center comes out mostly clean.
To freeze: Let the oatmeal cool completely and then cut or scoop into portions. Store the oatmeal in airtight freezer bags or containers. Reheat in the microwave for 30-45 seconds when needed with a tablespoon of water.

Make ahead: Combine all ingredients as directed. When ready to bake, give mixture a quick stir, dump into greased pan, and bake as directed, adding an extra 5-10 minutes to baking time.

Gluten free: make sure your oats are labelled as certified gluten free.
