What is baked oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal can be compared to an oat casserole. You mix the oats with the necessary ingredients and then bake them in the oven. The perfect baked oatmeal is cooked to perfection and has a delicious taste when it comes out of the oven. You can serve the baked oatmeal with yogurt or top it off with homemade cashew or coconut cream.

Typically, this mixture consists of puréed fruit or vegetables, nuts, a sweetener, and diced fruit. Baked apple or banana oatmeal is a popular variant.

Rolled oats. Use whole oats; instant oats are not suitable for this recipe. The whole old-fashioned style oats give a hearty and satisfying texture. If you are looking for this breakfast to be GLUTEN-FREE, look for gluten-free oats. Although oats are naturally gluten-free, these days, due to cross-contamination, they can contain gluten. It is essential always to check the package.

Pumpkin puree. You can use homemade or canned pumpkin puree. If you use canned, do not forget to read the ingredients and check that it doesn’t contain sugar or other ingredients. You could substitute it with butternut puree.

Pumpkin pie spice mix. You can use a store-bought mix or make your own with cinnamon, cloves, nutmeg, and ginger.

Nuts. I love using walnuts in this recipe, but you can feel free to use any type, like pecans, slivered almonds, or even peanut butter would work great here.

Nuts and seeds not only add flavor but also provide texture and boost the dish’s nutritional value. They contain good fats, vitamins, and minerals that are beneficial for our health.

Other ingredients: This baked oat recipe also calls for almond milk (or other non-dairy milk), chia seeds, baking powder, and salt, among others.

how to make this baked pumpkin oatmeal recipe

  • Preheat the oven to 350ºF.
  • Mix your dry ingredients in a large bowl: oats, sugar, baking powder, chia seeds, salt, and spices.
  • Mix the pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and vegetable milk in a separate bowl. When mixed, pour over the oats and mix well.
  • Pour the mixture into a baking pan and bake for 20 minutes or until firm.
  • Serve warm with yogurt or coconut whipped cream.

You might think that the amount of liquid is excessive, but do not worry, it is necessary to cook the oats properly and make them smooth and delicious. The liquid will be absorbed, resulting in a delectable breakfast dish.


If you don’t like pumpkin or can’t get pumpkin puree, you can make it with applesauce or mashed banana.

If you make it with apples, you can add raisins, cranberries, or diced apples. If you add bananas, you can add dark chocolate chips or nuts and change the pumpkin pie spice mix for cinnamon or not use spices.

Add a dash of vanilla extract to the wet ingredients mix, and stir until well incorporated.

To properly store baked pumpkin oatmeal?

Allow the baked pumpkin oatmeal to cool completely before storing it. This helps to prevent condensation build-up, which can lead to a soggy texture. Divide the oatmeal into individual portions, if desired. This makes it easier to grab and reheat as needed.

Transfer the baked pumpkin oatmeal into airtight containers or resealable bags. Make sure the containers are suitable for the refrigerator or freezer. Label the containers with the date to keep track of freshness.

If refrigerating, store the baked pumpkin oatmeal in the refrigerator for up to 4-5 days—reheat individual servings in the microwave or oven before enjoying.

If freezing, place the containers in the freezer. The baked pumpkin oatmeal can be stored in the freezer for up to 2-3 months. When ready to eat, thaw overnight in the refrigerator and reheat before serving.
