If you follow me on facebook or twitter, you already know that there is some pumpkin-y goodness going on over here! Starting with this breakfast treat! It all started when I came across a recipe at Barefeet in The Kitchen for Baked Oatmeal, and I couldn’t stop thinking about it. Then my mind started swirling around as always, and I got to thinking, wouldn’t this be amazing with pumpkin and pumpkin spices?! Um yes. It is. You need to try it.
What I love most about this recipe is the fact that you can make it ahead of time, making it great for weekends or when guests are over. Just make it the night before and put it in the oven first thing in the morning! Such a treat!
Here’s the recipe! I hope you make it and love it!

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal
- 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
- 1/2 cup brown sugar
- 2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1/4 tsp nutmeg
- 1/4 tsp cloves
- 1 tsp ground ginger
- 1/2 tsp vanilla
- 1/4 cup oil
- 3 eggs
- 1 1/2 cups milk
- 1/2 cup pure pumpkin puree not pumpkin pie mix
- 1/2 cup raisins
Whisk together eggs, oil, milk and vanilla. Then stir in pumpkin puree.
In a separate bowl, whisk together oats, sugar, baking powder, salt and spices.
Combine egg mixture and oat mixture.
Pour into an 8x8 baking dish. Then cover and refrigerate overnight.
In the morning, give the oatmeal a little stir. I found if you don't do this, the egg mix tends to settle into the bottom. So give it a little stir.
Then put the dish into a cold oven, and bake at 350 degrees for 40 to 45 minutes.
