This delicious and hearty Make Ahead Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal is a must make this fall! It’s perfect for a meal prep breakfast that’s ready when you are in the morning!
Anyone else feel totally thrown off by the time change?! We lived in Arizona for the past 5 years and didn’t have daylight savings time and it was much easier that way! All I can say is thank goodness for easy breakfasts like this Make Ahead Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal!
I make a lot of baked oatmeal, like a few times a month. I do a lot of Baked Oatmeal Cups because they’re really easy for portioning out, but sometimes I like to mix it up a little and do a big dish of baked oatmeal.
I thought it would be fitting to bake this Make Ahead Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal in a pan, instead of cups, because you can cut slices of it just like you would pumpkin pie! You could actually even bake it in a round dish so it’s been more pumpkin pie like, but I didn’t think of that until just now haha 🙂
I love making baked oatmeal because it’s hearty healthy and really hearty and filling. I really enjoy it and Eli likes it too! I’m pretty sure he thinks it’s dessert since it’s a little sweet and I’m not about to tell him that that isn’t quite the case 🙂 But feel free to eat it as a dessert if you like! A scoop of coconut whipped cream on top really makes it feel special.
This Make Ahead Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal is also really great for an afternoon snack! I’ve been really craving sweets lately but am trying not to overdue it with sugar so this baked oatmeal is a nice healthier snack that isn’t overpacked with sugar.
Recipe Tips for Make Ahead Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal:
- You can bake this oatmeal in a muffin tin for baked oatmeal cups. Just spray the muffin tin with cooking spray and use a 1/4 cup scoop to scoop the batter in. Bake for about 20-25 minutes.
- I’ve made this in a 13×9 baking dish and also in one that was a little smaller. The larger baking dish you use, the quicker it bakes.
- I didn’t add nuts into my baked oatmeal since Eli still can’t chew them very well, but I did add a few on top that I could pick off of his. Feel free to add nuts inside and on top of yours if you like.
- I like to let my baked oatmeal sit for a few minutes after I take it out of the oven and it will firm up a little bit more.
