How To Make Pumpkin Oatmeal in the Oven

I love making baked oatmeal almost even more than the instant you can just throw in the microwave. That’s because, with this recipe and the easy instructions, I can whip up a batch in no time, throw it in the oven and have a reheatable breakfast I can enjoy all week long. 

You just have to prepare your oven, and baking dish, then mix all ingredients together in a large bowl and stir until well combined.

Spread the mixture into prepared dish, sprinkle top with chopped pecans, and bake until the edges are starting to turn golden brown. Serve with a drizzle of milk and enjoy!

Ways To Serve Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

My favorite way to serve up baked oatmeal is when we are having a lazy weekend, and need a good comforting breakfast everyone can eat that doesn’t involve a million craked eggs and a stovetop full of skillets and cracking bacon grease. One batch of this makes 6 servings, so you can easily serve the whole family. 

If you want to make your morning as lazy as possible (because why not enjoy a few extra minutes of sleep? , then try prepping it all the night before. You can prepare the oats up until the baking stage, refrigerate overnight and just leave the baking for the morning. 

Another great way to serve this baked oatmeal is to meal prep a whole batch to last the week. That way you can just grab and go and still have a delicious filling breakfast, even when you’re short on time. When eating the leftovers, you can reheat it in the microwave for about 30 seconds, or you can even eat it cold.

How Long Does Baked Oatmeal Keep?

Thankfully baked oatmeal keeps for quite some time, which is why it’s such a great breakfast to meal prep for the week. You don’t have to worry about eating up every last bit the day you make it, because it will last you up to the whole week. 

As long as the Leftovers are stored properly in a covered container in the refrigerator, they will stay fresh for 5-7 days.

Can I Freeze Pumpkin Oatmeal?

Yes! Any type of cooked oatmeal can be frozen, and this baked pumpkin oatmeal is no exception. When frozen, and stored in an airtight container, it will last for up to six months. 

The best part about freezing oatmeal is that you can reheat it straight from the freezer. Just pop the oatmeal in the microwave for about one to two minutes.

Tools used to make this Pumpkin Oatmeal

Glass Mixing Bowl Set: Everyone should have a good set of mixing bowls in their kitchen. This set is my favorite because the variety of sizes means I always have exactly what I need available. 

Nut Chopper: Chopping nuts by hand can be quite a chore. A good nut chopper will save you time and can ensure that your nuts are not only finely ground, but also free of the irregular chunks. 

Oblong Casserole Dish:  Sometimes I want to switch things up from just a normal square or rectangle casserole dish, and this oblong one does just the trick! 

Homemade Vanilla:  With the prices vanilla skyrocketing, I like to make my own vanilla, because it’s so easy and just as good!
