Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I've posted so many oatmeal recipes here; I've been attempting to restrain myself from posting new ones more frequently than once a month. When Jo-Anna shared this pumpkin spiced version of my Cinnamon Spice Baked Oatmeal a couple months ago, I could hardly wait to try it.

This would be an excellent Thanksgiving breakfast. I'm in favor of anything that makes my holiday kitchen work easier. This dish can also be assembled the night before and then put straight into a cold oven the next morning!

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal
recipe adapted from A Pretty Life In The Suburbs
(printable recipe)

3 cups old-fashioned rolled oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 teaspoons baking powder
1/4 teaspoons kosher salt
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
1/4 teaspoon cloves
1/2 teaspoon ginger
1/2 cup raisins
3 eggs
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/4 cup olive oil
1 1/2 cup milk
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
Optional: whipped cream for topping

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Stir together all ingredients and then pour into a well-greased 8" square or 8x10 baking dish. Bake for 30-40 minutes (or 40-45 minutes if cold from the fridge in a cold oven - if cooking this cold from the fridge, give the oatmeal a quick stir first), or until knife inserted in center comes out mostly clean.  Enjoy!

FREEZER MEAL: Let the oatmeal cool completely and then cut or scoop into portions. Store the oatmeal in airtight freezer bags or containers. Reheat in the microwave with a tablespoon of water.

{edited to update photo 10/3/2013 ~ This is still one of my favorite baked oatmeal recipes. My boys would happily eat this every single morning all fall long if I let them!}

Baileys Irish Cream Mousse Pie
I absolutely love pies and this is my favorite time of year for baking them. I want you to be every bit as inspired to bake this year as I am! I was sad for a brief moment when I realized that I don't have a single pie photo and recipe of my own to show you this Thanksgiving.


Sticky Toffee Pudding Apple Pie

That is a good thing for you though, because I realized that I could introduce you to my friend, Tricia. I'm going to share with you just a few of my favorites from her blog, Saving Room for Dessert.

Chocolate Pecan Pie


Tricia is my hero when it comes to pie-making. She has posted a brand new pie recipe every single week for a year! You can click on the link underneath any of the pictures here and be taken straight to her recipe for that pie. I am making two of her pies today and I can hardly wait to taste them. I had so many of her pies bookmarked to try; it was hard to choose just a few to show you today!

Lemon Chess Pie - I've been drooling over this one for way too long!

  7. Pumpkin and oatmeal are two of my favorite things and I don't think it's humanly possible to have too many recipes that involve them both!

  10. I've often thought it's a good thing I'm not great at making pie crusts, or I'd be making them once a week too! I'm off to check off her blog. Thanks for all the great links, and the oatmeal recipe.

  12. I just made this today, after my family staged a protest against steel cut oats in the crockpot ( I was so sad, it was cheap and easy). This was so yummy! Even I ate it, and I don't like sweet breakfasts. Finally, an easy oatmeal dish we can all enjoy! Thanks.
