Warm up this fall with a bowl of pumpkin baked oats! They are comforting yet healthy and filling breakfast. They are also packed with nutrients and fiber to keep you full until lunchtime.

And, they are easy to make – ready in less than 30 minutes. You’ll have a warm, comforting breakfast that will make your whole house smell like fall.

Perfect Breakfast for Fall

One of my favorite things to eat in the morning is oatmeal, especially when the weather is cooler in the fall and winter.

Baked oats, though, are a healthy, hands-off breakfast which means no standing over the stove stirring the oatmeal. Just set it and forget it!

Plus, using the oven helps warm the house up, which is a nice bonus on chilly mornings.

These pumpkin baked oatmeal are soft and fluffy, with the perfect mix of earthy pumpkin flavor, sweet maple syrup, and warm spice.

You can enjoy them as is or customize them with your favorite add-ins! They’re a great recipe for a quick breakfast, snack, or meal prep!

How to Make Pumpkin Baked Oats

Oven Preparation. Preheat the oven to 350°F and put some nonstick cooking spray in four 6-ounce ramekins.

Blend them until it is smooth.

You can also do this with an immersion blender if your box blender is too big or you don’t have one, though it will take several minutes to puree. I recommend using a food processor over an immersion belnder.

Recipe Variations

  • Make it crunch: for added flavor and texture, add chopped nuts (walnuts, pecans, almonds) or chocolate chips to the batter after blending.
  • Creamy Baked Pats – add milk, almond milk, or cream to the oats after baking for more creaminess.
  • Add ¼ cup of shredded carrots to the batter for a fun twist. The carrots will add sweetness and moisture to the oats.
  • If you don’t have pumpkin puree on hand, you can use mashed sweet potato or butternut squash. Both of these ingredients will give the oats a similar flavor and texture.
  • Adjust the spices according to your taste. If you like things spicier, add more cinnamon or pumpkin pie spice. If you prefer things sweeter, add more pure maple syrup or brown sugar.
