Healthy Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Fall has got to be my favorite season. That crisp, clean air and the colorful pallete of falling leaves just make me want to cozy up to a warm cup of apple cider. But even more than the weather, I love the fall bounty. With fruits like cranberries, apples and pears and vegetables like pumpkin, parsnips and kale – there’s so much to choose from! I can’t wait to get started on healthy comfort foods to keep my family warm all winter long. This delicious baked pumpkin oatmeal is the perfect way to get started!

Baked oatmeal is all the rage right now, with flavors like apple pie, mixed berry, banana bread, and peanut butter cup, to name just a few! But fragrant pumpkin oatmeal just takes the cake for me. It’s rich and creamy with spices of autumn – the perfect treat for any time of day, even dessert! I’ve created a healthy version with no added fat and only a small about of sugar, so it fills you up without filling you out :) You can even prepare individual portions in cupcake pans for the perfect healthy snack on the go!

  1. Would appreciate knowing the size of canned pumpkin puree. Also, if allspice could replace nutmeg. Thank you for a great grab and go healthy breakfast idea & plan. Thinking of adding dried blueberries instead ….

    1. Hi Carla, thanks for your questions! As per the recipe, the oatmeal uses only 1 cup of pumpkin puree, so the size of the can doesn’t make a difference (the smallest can will have more than 1 cup in it). In this recipe, it would be acceptable to substitute allspice for the nutmeg. I prefer dried cranberries because it’s reminiscent of fall and thanksgiving cranberry sauce (the perfect accompaniment to pumpkin pie!), but blueberries or raisins can work too.
