Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal


We love to start our days with baked oatmeal. Since we are celebrating Fall, I adapted the recipe to include pumpkin, of course…Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal. Baked oatmeal is a perfect breakfast on the go or snack, especially if you bake the oatmeal in muffin tins rather than a baking dish.

    1. I made this last week and it’s delicious!! I had a healthy, filling breakfast all week and am about to make it again for this week! I love how toasted the nuts and oats get. So much more flavorful than regular oatmeal. Love the crunchiness!

      I have eaten it in several ways. Took a piece from the refrigerator, microwaved in a bowl for 2 min with some milk, then broken into pieces. Yum. When I didn’t have the opportunity to add milk and microwave, I ate the piece as a bar – equally delicious! Thanks for a great recipe! I love pumpkin and the spices that go with it!! (By the way I used maple syrup in place of honey.)

  1. Started making this (half the ingredients in a bowl) and realized I don’t know how much Sugar, Milk, or Applesauce? Help!

    1. Hi Jessica! I had a crazy mommy-brain moment and published the post without finishing it. Everything is fixed now! 🙂

    2. I don’t see any reference to applesauce or sugar as mentioned in one of the comments. Another says “I’m glad this didn’t call for milk”. I’m confused about the ingredients. Is the recipe for pumpkin spice oatmeal above correct?

    1. Hi Joy! 🙂 Yum! I haven’t made my own pumpkin puree yet! I will have to try it! Thanks for sharing the recipe. 🙂

  2. Looks delicious! And I love that it doesn’t call for milk. Will definitely try making this and freezing some squares for quick breakfasts and snacks for the guys 🙂

    Do you have any idea what would happen if I subbed sugar for the honey? Would I need to add any extra liquid? I’m currently out of honey and can’t get to Earth Fare to get more of the good stuff yet 🙂

      1. Thanks! I went ahead and tried it and added a little extra pumpkin and maybe 1/4 cup coconut milk and it was perfectly yummy and plenty moist 🙂

        (By the way, I read the recipe after you fixed it but before you replied to the “help” comments above. I was so confused why people were asking about applesauce and sugar and milk when there was none listed in the recipe! I got it now 🙂 )

  3. This looks scrumptious! Going to give it a try this weekend. What is the best type of oats to use or does it not really matter?

    1. I don’t think it really matters. I used old fashioned oats, so it’s pretty chewy, but next time I’ll use quick oats just to try the difference. 🙂

      1. I made it this morning for breakfast with the old fashioned oats and I was not disappointed. So yummy!! 😀

  4. Hi Myra — Looks delicious! I noticed in the picture it looks as though you cooked them in a muffin tin. Do you alter the cooking time when you do it that way? Thanks!

  5. These turned out delicious and super filling! They were just a little dry and crunchy on the top, did I bake them too long or do they need more moist ingredients?

  6. Hi! Just wondering if it matters what kind of oats are used. Most of the baked oatmeal recipes I come across call for old-fashioned, but I have the quick oats on hand and was wondering if that would be acceptable. Thanks! 😀

    1. I’ve actually used both with success. You may need to cut the baking time a bit so it doesn’t get over baked. 🙂 I hope that helps!

  7. Found this on a search for baked oatmeal recipes. I made it for my family over Christmas. It was a huge hit. I’ve since made it again and it makes for a wonderful breakfast. I served in bowl with heated milk. Also great heated and then topped with greek yogurt. Thanks for sharing.

  8. Hi!

    I love your recipe and have made it many times! I wrote down the recipe a couple of years ago and noticed a change from 1/4 cup milk to 2 cups milk. I tried with 2 cups milk and the consistency was not correct. Is the 2 cups milk an error?
