Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Pumpkin Oatmeal with Cranberries in a blue bowl

The recipe for Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal originally appeared in my very first blog post. The post was a long list of wonderful ways to elevate oats from plain to party. Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is one of my favorites and I have been wanting to give  its very own little spot for some time. This Thanksgiving weekend feels like the right time to dust it off and let it shine.

The beautiful crumble topping is sure to make holiday houseguests feel really special. It is a warm cozy treat for shoppers who braved the chilly early morning sales. Or, enjoy a bowl while lounging in your pjs and catching up on your favorite t.v. movies. Impressive looking while simple to make and it doesn’t use very many dishes. Now that’s something to be thankful for!

Every time I make this recipe I tweak it a little to suit my mood or pantry. The original recipe calls for individual ramekins but I prefer serving family style from a casserole dish. Try it, play with it, and adapt it to suit your life. Thank you Rainy Day Gal for pointing me to this great recipe.
Prep time: 10 minutes Cook time: 17 minutes Serves 3 – 4.
  • 1 cup old fashioned oats
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 3/4 cup 1% milk (or milk of your choice)
  • 1/4 cup water
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice (or 1/4 tsp all spice, 1/4 tsp ground ginger)
  • 1/2 tsp lemon or orange zest
  • optional – 1 cup fresh cranberries, 1 tsp Stevia
  • 1/4 cup pecan halves, minced
  • 2 tsp unsalted butter, softened
  • 1 Tbs brown sugar
  • a dash of cinnamon
  • a dash of zest


  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees F
  2. In an oven-safe pot or small casserole dish, combine the pumpkin, milk and butter then mix in the dry ingredients. (the topping comes later) Place the oatmeal in the oven and bake for 10 minutes.
  3. While the oatmeal is baking make the topping. Use a fork to mash together the butter and brown sugar then stir in remaining ingredients. After 10 minutes sprinkle the topping over the oatmeal and return to the oven for an additional 7 minutes.
  4. Let cool for 5 minutes before serving.
Suggested variations:
  • Use maple syrup in place of the brown sugar in the oatmeal
  • Toss a few dried cranberries or raisins on top for some added texture and sweetness.
  • Use a variety of nuts, walnuts, almonds, hazelnuts and sunflower seeds are all great in this recipe.
  • Top each serving with plain fat free Greek yogurt – boosts the protein.
  • mix in slices of apple or pears, fresh or frozen berries, or top with orange segments
