Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal


  • 2 Cups Old Fashioned Rolled Oats or Coach's Oats
  • 1/2 Cup Ground Flaxseed Meal
  • 1 teaspoon Baking Powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon Salt
  • 2/3 Cup Unsweetened Pumpkin Puree
  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I like Unsweetened Vanilla Almond Milk, use your favorite dairy or dairy free milk)
  • 1/2 Cup Egg Whites or 2 Whole Eggs with Yolks
  • Sweetener: Stevia or your favorite natural sweetener to taste (Maple, Honey, Sucanat & Agave great too)
  • 1 tablespoon Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 teaspoon ground Cinnamon
  • 1 teaspoon ground Ginger
  • 1 teaspoon ground Nutmeg
  • 1/4 Tsp Allspice
  • Cooking Spray


  • Pre heat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray pan with oil. Mix oats, spices, salt, baking powder and flaxseed in a bowl. Mix pumpkin, milk, sweetener and eggs in another bowl. If you are using whole eggs, you can whisk them before you add them to the bowl. Combine all ingredients together and stir well.
  • Spread mixture evenly in a 8 x 8 glass baking dish. Bake for about 20 minutes until oatmeal has cooked through. This is best enjoyed straight out of the oven. Top with nuts, dried fruit and some extra milk.
  • Notes
  • This oatmeal can be stored in the fridge in an air tight container for a few days. Thin out with extra milk or water to make creamy.
  • Add a dollop of thick greek yogurt or whipped cream to the top of your oats.

  1. I have had a request for this for breakfast on the first day of school (from a child who hates oatmeal, no less!) and cannot find pumpkin ANYWHERE! (canned, frozen, or fresh, grrr.) Is there any chance of substituting something like sweet potato or butternut squash?

    • Nicole: Yes, sweet potato would be an excellent substitution. The butternut squash could work to, but I would opt for the yams first. The addition of pumpkin pie spice can make those two options taste more like pumpkin pie.

  2. I could eat pumpkin in almost anything. We have a lovely rogue plant in our garden that showed up out of nowhere. So far we have 15 large pumpkings and more are appearing every day. It’s such a gift.

  3. Hi Marla. I just wanted to let you know that this recipe
    continues to be a favorite in our household–my 16 month-old is
    eating it for lunch, topped with a dollop of vanilla yogurt. Happy
    baby! Thanx for such great recipes!

    • Cole: Your comment thrills me. To read that families are trying my recipes and enjoying them so makes everything I do worth it :) How amazing that your little one loves my baked pumpkin oatmeal. Such a healthy meal. That dollop of yogurt on the top adds so much too! I made this the other day with steel cut oats that I soaked overnight & it was amazing. Thanks for sharing your kind words today.

    • Jules: Yes, I do bake a big batch of this either in separate ramekins or in a baking dish. Simply re heat portions in the microwave or oven for a few minutes. Stir in some milk, yogurt, cream or hot water when serving to make creamy. It is even better over the course of a few days because the flavors have a chance to combine.

  4. Curious, if I were to use a stevia sweetener granulated, approx. how much would you recommend? Any help would be appreciated, thanks.

    • Hi Adrienne, that is a touch call because each stevia powder is so different as far as the ratio. I always tell you guys to “sweeten to taste” I hope that works for you. I always taste my batters & such.

  5. Hello!

    Just stumbled upon this recipe a few minutes ago and plan on making it later today. Sounds truly delicious! Wondering if it can be eaten as a bar type ‘cookie’ or does it need some form of liquid (milk option or yogurt) to soften before eaten?

    Thanks for your time! Dona

    • Hi Dona! So glad you found my blog & that you are gonna try this oatmeal. I suggest each time you reheat a portion you add some milk or water. Not really a bar though….

  6. Hello :)
    I am eating this while I type. This is amazing` I love it and it is so moist and delicious. I made it yesterday and reheated adding some milk and topped with orange blossom honey. Thank you so much for this recipe-I am thinking about making another batch tonight and freezing.
    Your blog is awesome and the pictures are amazing.

  7. For those in the middle of no where and who aren’t in need of gluten free items can flour be substituted for the flax meal or maybe if I ground some oats in the blender until it is “meal” like? I’d really like to try this and maybe add some craisins
