Baked Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal

I LOVE putting a pumpkin twist on my favorite baked oatmeal!  This recipe is full of pumpkin, warm spices, sweetened with maple syrup, and the pecans give it a crunch.  It’s a great make-ahead meal that reheats very well.  Oh, and your house will smell heavenly!

Garnish as desired.  I love this So Delicious Coco Whip!  It makes it taste even more like pumpkin pie!

Ingredients:

1 cup pecans, chopped (plus additional for garnish, if desired)
1 (15oz) can pumpkin puree (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
1.5 cup almond milk (OR milk of your choosing), at room temperature
4 eggs, at room temperature
1/2 cup coconut oil, melted and slightly cooled
1/2 cup pure maple syrup
2 teaspoon pure vanilla extract
4 cups rolled oats
4 teaspoons ground cinnamon
1 teaspoon ground nutmeg
1 teaspoon ground ginger
1/2 teaspoon ground allspice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder

Optional garnishes: brown sugar, toasted pecans, maple syrup, milk, whipped cream, toasted coconut, fresh fruit, dried fruit

Instructions:

Preheat oven to 350°F. Lightly grease or spray with nonstick cooking spray a 9×13-inch baking dish.

Spread chopped pecans on an ungreased baking sheet and toast for 4 to 6 minutes or until fragrant and light golden brown. Cool on baking sheet.

In a large bowl, mix together pumpkin, milk, eggs, coconut oil, maple syrup, and vanilla; beat until smooth. Blend in oats, toasted pecans, cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger, allspice, salt, and baking powder; stir until mixture is well-combined.

Spread oatmeal into prepared baking dish and bake for 30 minutes or until set and light golden brown on top. Allow to cool in the baking dish for at least 5 minutes before slicing. Serve warm with optional garnishes.

Tips:

The reason the milk and eggs should be at room temperate is because if they are cold, they will cause the coconut oil to resolidify. To quickly warm everything up, I usually just put the whole eggs in a bowl of warm water for a few minutes and zap the milk in the microwave for 20 to 30 seconds.

Reheat oatmeal by placing an individual serving on a plate, drizzling with a little milk, and then heating in the microwave for about 30 seconds.
