Y’all this is a happy first day of autumn but about two weeks late post! I love autumn: the colorful leaves, cool temperatures, vivid blue skies, pumpkin treats, cozy evenings, and beautiful walks.
This pumpkin baked oatmeal recipe is easy, inexpensive, and delicious! Following the pictures, you’ll find the recipe.
Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
3 cups rolled oats
3/4 c. brown sugar (packed)
1 tsp. salt
2 tsp. baking powder
1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice (you can Google pumpkin pie spice recipe and it’s just a combination of some spices: you can also purchase it ready made in the spices section)
1 can (15 oz.) pumpkin
1/2 c. oil or butter (I often use oil)
2 cups milk
1 tsp. vanilla
1/2 – 3/4 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Combine oats, brown sugar, salt, baking powder, and pumpkin pie spice. Then, add pumpkin, oil (or butter), milk, and vanilla. Whip the eggs just a bit in a small bowl, and then pour into the rest of the mixture. Chocolate chips add the perfect touch, but you don’t have to use them unless you like. If you do want to, add them here. Pour into a greased 9×13 pan and bake for about 25-30 minutes. If you’re using a glass pan, bake time will be longer. Enjoy!
