This pumpkin pie baked oatmeal is a hearty, comforting breakfast casserole that’s excellent served cold, although I prefer to eat my slice warmed up and served with milk or yogurt. It’s also nice when eaten with some fresh fruit on the side. When I feel like being a little extra (which is mostly all the time), I’ll top mine with a generous dollop of sweetened whipped cream and a sprinkle of extra cinnamon and sugar.

It’s seriously like having dessert for breakfast! 

In general, I think baked oatmeal is a fantastic choice for a make-ahead breakfast to get you through hectic weekday mornings. This pumpkin pie baked oatmeal recipe makes a large pan of this sweet breakfast casserole and depending on how you slice it, it makes 8 or more servings. It will keep in the refrigerator for up to 5 days, but this probably won’t be an issue because it probably won’t even last that long!!

The large serving size is also perfect for feeding a crowd. This is a fantastic menu choice for breakfast in a bustling kitchen on a holiday morning or to bring to an office pot luck party.


How to make pumpkin pie baked oatmeal. 

This recipe is essentially a serving of hearty oats baked into a traditional pumpkin custard filling! The simple pumpkin pie custard is made with pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice, eggs, milk, maple syrup, and vanilla extract. To the oats, you will add a few common baking ingredients such as baking powder, salt, and brown sugar.

Generally, I use quick-cooking and old-fashioned oats interchangeably when I make any recipe for baked oats. My kids have a preference for the soft texture that results from using quick-cooking oats in recipes like this one, and I have a preference for the more firm texture of the old-fashioned oats. So, we take turns on which type of oats we add into morning casseroles like this one when we make them.  However, we all enjoy the end result no matter what sort of oats are chosen.
