Starting the day off with Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal sounds a little bit like dessert, doesn’t it?
Turns out that it does sort of taste like dessert, but it’s actually a really nutritious way to start the day! Why? Well pumpkin has plenty of health benefits, and then I’ve combined it with other nutritious ingredients for a pumpkin pie oatmeal bake that packs a nutritious punch, while also tasting great.
Now, I reeeeeeally hesitated to title this as PUMPKIN PIE oatmeal, because I get a little annoyed when I see recipes that claim to be something they so clearly are not. Many years ago I tried overnight oats that claimed to taste just like cookie dough….but um, oats, almond butter, and almond milk actually DON’T taste like cookie dough.
Then there was the time that I made a delicious Pizza Quinoa Casserole, but I made the mistake of telling my (then) two-year-old that we were having pizza…but then it wasn’t ACTUAL pizza, and needless to say, she wasn’t happy about it.
But this baked pumpkin pie oatmeal actually tastes like pumpkin pie…with a bunch of oatmeal mixed in. It’s so good! So I’m hoping that it’s ok that I leave pumpkin pie in the title.
And as always, this breakfast is easy to make. We mix everything together. Then we top the mixture with some pats of butter, a sprinkle of brown sugar, and some chopped nuts for a decadent top.

What are the Benefits of Pumpkin?
Pumpkin is so nutritious! There are quite a few health benefits of pumpkin, so I’d definitely add it to as many dishes as you can this time of year. What makes it so healthy? This fruit is usually considered a vegetable (culinarily speaking) but it’s actually a fruit. Now you know! No matter what the classification is, 100 grams (about 1 cup cubed) pumpkin is an excellent source of vitamin A and beta-carotene and contains about 10% of the recommended daily value.
Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal Recipe Substitutions
You know me, I love it when everyone can add their own toppings to food. It’s just fun! Here are some of my ideas for baked pumpkin pie oatmeal. It doesn’t need much, but if you decide to omit the brown sugar, it will definitely need some sort of sweetener like maple syrup or honey or sugar.
- Whipped cream: yes, even for breakfast! Whipped cream actually has a lot less sugar than maple syrup! Plus your kids will think it’s so fun.
- Maple syrup: because it’s obviously delicious with oatmeal and pumpkin flavors.
- Butter: never a bad idea.
- Vanilla greek yogurt: if you want a little extra staying power.
Obviously you can see what topping my toddler loves on her baked pumpkin pie oatmeal! 😉
