Do you love the flavors of pumpkin pie but wish it were a wee bit healthier? I have always wanted a better for you pumpkin treat that would leave me feeling energized, and satisfied.
After processing my own sugar pumpkins, I roasted the meat with just a little kosher salt. After it was cooled, I scraped off the soft pumpkin, and placed it into my blender to puree it. The process was easy, and produced close to 6 pounds of pumpkin puree for pies, and other desserts.
I wanted to use the fresh pumpkin puree in a abundance of ways, and that is when Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal came into play. This delicious, custardy oatmeal tastes very similar to pumpkin pie but without all the extra crust calories.
The flavors of fresh pumpkin, hearty oats, and the typical spices were so delicious either straight from the oven or cold.
What a delicious breakfast treat this Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal Recipe produces! My picky kids loved it, and we even have enough for like 3 days worth of energizing breakfasts.
I suppose if I enjoyed this straight out of the oven, I could have paired it with some fresh whipped cream or vanilla ice cream, but I was “good’ and ate it in the morning.
Baked pumpkin oatmeal ingredients
- pumpkin Puree (I used fresh, but canned would work)

Baked Oatmeal Tips
Always grease your pan so the oatmeal doesn’t stick.
Cooled oatmeal will be easier to serve.
You can enjoy this hot or cold.
Canned or freshly processed pumpkin can be used.
This does taste nice with some syrup over the top of it.
Walnuts, pecans, or chopped almonds would make a lovely addition to this oatmeal.
You can make your own spice blend with 1/2 tsp cinnamon, 1/4 tsp nutmeg, and a 1/8 tsp of ground cloves, and 1/8 tsp of ginger if you cannot find pumpkin spice. However, Trader Joe’s makes the best blend that is so fresh and inexpensive.
This keeps for 3 days in the fridge when stored in an airtight container.
