Pumpkin pie can sometimes be too sweet; not this recipe. You get all the warmth and depth of a homemade pumpkin pie without all the sugar. The pecans and baked oatmeal add a hearty crunch and you’ll notice when you cut a slice from the pan it pulls out almost like a bread pudding. This Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal is truly one of my favorite options for breakfast! A good cup of coffee and some Healthy Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal, wow!

The rest is just opening a can of pumpkin puree, pouring in some oat milk and syrup, sprinkling some spices and you’re done!

How to Make Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
- Chia eggs. Make your chia eggs first by adding 5 tablespoons of water to 2 tablespoons of chia seeds and mix well until thick.
- Combine liquids. In a large mixing bowl, combine oat milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and chia eggs.
- Mix Dry Ingredients. In a separate mixing bowl, combine oats, pumpkin spice, baking soda, and nuts of choice (we used pecans). Combine until pumpkin spice and baking soda thoroughly coats both oats and nuts.
- Combine all ingredients. Pour dry mixture of oats and spices into mixing bowl of liquids and whisk until all ingredients are evenly mixed.
- Baking pan. Thoroughly coat entire surface (edges included) of baking pan with either Vegan butter or olive oil then pour mixture into baking pan.
- Vegan butter slices on top. Add several slices of Vegan butter to the top of your mixture roughly 2 inches apart from each other so the top of your Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal doesn’t get burned during baking.
- Chopped nuts. Sprinkle chopped nuts over the top of your mixture
- Cover baking pan. Place foil over the top of your baking pan.
- Bake. Preheat your oven to 350 and bake for 25 to 30 minutes until the surface of your baked oatmeal is golden.
- Cool and serve. Let cool for 10 minutes before serving.
Meal Prep Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
This is one of those great recipes which can be included in any meal prep routing. This recipe also taste great cold. So, what you can do is slice the baked oatmeal into squares and place them into individual plastic bags in the fridge; then, in the mornings (during the week) just grab a square, place it in a bowl, pour some oat milk over the top, sprinkle with some fresh berries, and you’re set.
- Pumpkin puree. If you are tempted to use less pumpkin puree, don’t. I initially made this recipe with half a cup of pumpkin puree and I could barely taste the pumpkin. If you really enjoy pumpkin, you may even consider adding more puree or pumpkin spice.
- Slices of Vegan butter. It’s very important that you remember to add small slices of Vegan butter to the top of your baked oatmeal before putting it in the oven. This recipe can get dried out in the oven quickly and begin to burn. You will likely not need more than 6 to 8 thin slices of butter. Just place them roughly 2 inches apart from each other.
- Cover with foil. In similar fashion, the foil will keep your Pumpkin Spice Oatmeal Bake from getting burnt.
- Nuts. You can add any nut you want to your Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal. We love pecans and feel they go great with this recipe. However, experiment. Try some walnuts.
- Cranberries. Add some cranberries. I haven’t tried this myself but cranberries are another one of those Fall accoutrements so it may work well with this recipe. Let us know!
- Vanilla extract. I was half-tempted to add this to the recipe; I think it might be pretty good with some vanilla flavors running around in the background.
