Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal For Two {with gluten-free/dairy-free friendly substitution options}

Soft-baked oatmeal flavored with pumpkin puree and pumpkin pie spice, drizzled with pure maple syrup. It's a dessert in breakfast form, only healthier! Serve warm topped with pumpkin-pie-spiced candied pecans and a heaping spoonful of sweetened whipped cream.

If you've never tried baked oatmeal before, this recipe is a great one to try for the first time. I've made it four times in the past three weeks, because I just LOVE it!

Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal For Two

Recipe Source: © Amanda Jenks

1 cup old-fashioned oats *buy gluten-free oats for gluten-free
1/2 cup pumpkin puree
1/2 tablespoon salted butter, melted *substitute melted coconut oil for dairy free
1 egg, lightly beaten
2 tablespoons light agave, honey, or pure maple syrup *or 3 tablespoons light brown sugar
1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon baking powder
1/8 teaspoon baking soda
1/8 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon vanilla
3/4 cup milk *substitute almond, rice, soy, or coconut milk for dairy free

Pre-heat the oven to 350˚F. Grease two (2-cup) ramekins with non-stick cooking spray. Mix all of the above ingredients in a medium sized mixing bowl. Divide oatmeal mixture evenly between the prepared ramekins. Cover with aluminum foil and bake covered for 20 minutes. Uncover and bake for 12-15 additional minutes or until a toothpick inserted in the center comes out clean. Serve warm with spiced candied pecans (recipe below) and pure maple syrup. We also like to top ours with a little whipped cream.

This recipe can easily be doubled and baked in four ramekins, as directed above. Or it can be doubled and baked in a greased 8x8" pan. If baking in an 8x8" pan bake for 25 minutes covered and 17-20 minutes uncovered.

For candied spiced pecans:

1/4 cup coarsely chopped pecans
1 teaspoon 100% pure maple syrup
1 teaspoon dark brown sugar
1/4 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice

Heat a small non-stick skillet over medium high heat. Combine all of the candied pecan ingredients in a small bowl. Pour into skillet and spread into an even layer. Cook for 3-4 minutes or until nuts smell warm, toasted, and fragrant (but not burnt). Cool on a piece of parchment paper.

  1. Wow, this looks like just the thing for a chilly fall morning!

  2. Visiting from Somewhat Simple's link on I Heart Naptime (for your Ghoul-ash) and wanted to hope over to your blog to visit! I love how you made this recipe for 2, since it is so much easier to scale up than scale down (for me). =D I'm looking forward to seeing more great recipe ideas to come. :)


Speak your mind! I'd love to answer any questions you might have.
