Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

Regular oatmeal is fine, but I know most people don’t like it because of the texture. THis recipe fixes all of those problems. Baked oatmeal is a cross between a soft baked granola bar and an oatmeal cookie. So delicious!

This recipe calls for old fashioned oats because they withstand the baking process and hold together a little bit better than quick oats. If you want to use quick oats you can, but quick oats lend a more delicate texture to baked goods, the old-fashioned oats hold the recipe together better.

Ingredients Needed

  • Eggs: Help give structure and moisture to the baked oatmeal.
  • Applesauce: Unsweetened applesauce adds a natural sweetness.
  • Pumpkin Pie Spice: It wouldn’t be a fall baked oatmeal recipe without it!
  • Old Fashioned Oats: You may substitute for quick oats but it will change the texture.
  • Milk: Any kind of milk (dairy or nondairy) can be used.

How to make Baked Oatmeal

  • Preheat oven to 350°F. Spray an 11×7 or a 9×13 pan with nonstick cooking spray.
  • Whisk eggs, applesauce, brown sugar, and vanilla until smooth. Stir in pumpkin spice, salt, and baking powder. Stir in oats and milk. Gently fold in pecans. Spread in prepared pan.
  • Bake for 28-34 minutes until oatmeal is browned and not jiggly in the center. Cool slightly before serving. Serve with syrup and/or fruit or vanilla yogurt.
  • Store in refrigerator up to 2 days. You can also portion and freeze for quick morning breakfasts!

  1. Haven’t made this. Would like too increase ingredients by half to serve more, for homeless shelter breakfast. I’d use a disposable aluminum pan, like a “lasagna pan” from the dollar store. Probably need to bake longer. Any advice or suggestions you could offer would be appreciated! Thanks 💖

  2. Actually, I had to eat overnight oatmeal according to the PT diet but it was hard to swallow. Thanks to you I know more of this delicious oatmeal baked pumpkin spice recipe.
