If you’re the type to love anything and everything pumpkin pie flavored, you’re going to LOVE this Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal. It’s got all the goodies of pumpkin pie baked right into your breakfast oats. …But with a lot less sugar so you won’t get a sugar crash at 10am. ;)

What is Baked Oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal is just oats that have been baked into a custard-like mixture. So think of bread pudding but made with oats instead of chunks of bread. They’re soft (not crunchy like the photos sometimes appear), warm, and very moist. Baked oats are more firm than traditionally cooked oats because they contain eggs and less liquid, but they still remain soft.


I find that old-fashioned rolled oats work best for baked oatmeal recipes. Quick oats are a bit too small and delicate, and will create a pretty mushy end texture. Steel-cut oats require more moisture and a longer cooking time, so they will not work in this recipe. Old-fashioned rolled oats are the perfect mix between good texture and quick cooking!

How to Serve Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I absolutely love eating this pumpkin pie oatmeal cold every morning, but you can also reheat it in the microwave and eat it warm. Try drizzling a little maple syrup over top, sprinkling on a few chopped nuts, or even adding a dollop of whipped cream for an extra dessert-like finish.

How to Store Baked Oatmeal

This is a bake once, eat all week type of meal. After baking I divide the pumpkin pie baked oatmeal into single portions, then store them in the refrigerator for 4-5 days or freeze them for up to a few months. If you plan to freeze some of your baked oatmeal, chill it completely in the refrigerator first, then transfer it to the freezer.

  1. Great texture, very moist. Needs a little sweetness, maybe some golden raisins or chocolate chips if you’re planning to eat it by itself

  2. I love this recipe and sub with unsweetened almond milk and egg whites since I am someone who really has to watch what I eat. We have gallons of homemade frozen pumpkin purée since we were gifted many pumpkins after Halloween. Do you think it could work to leave out the oatmeal and essentially make a pan of pumpkin pie custard breakfast filling? I could really use up a lot of pumpkin this way.

    1. Hi Christie! I think you could try it and I feel like it might work. But, just know we haven’t tried it ourselves so I can’t tell you with certainty how it will turn out. I do worry that it will be too watery without the oats.

  3. I’ve made this twice now as I am trying to eat healthier and lose some weight. This satisfies my sugar craving and has helped me to reduce my sugar intake.I have mad this with coconut milk, skim milk and a combo of the two. Turns out great every time! Highly recommend!

  4. I’ve been making this for years, but returned to comment with the changes that I’ve made to it recently. I make it in a 9×13. I peel and shred three organic zucchini and add them to the first step of the recipe. I also substitute 4 tablespoons of Chia seeds, mixed with 10 tablespoons of water(let them sit for about five minutes to gel before adding them to the first step also.tablespoons of Chia seeds, mixed with 10 tablespoons of water… Let them sit for about five minutes to gel before adding them to the first step also.) I use these in place of eggs to make this recipe vegan.

  5. Great treat at breakfast! I love pumpkin bread. This oatmeal fills my pumpkin craving and it’s more nutritious. I saw your recipe oatmeal with cauliflower, I might add 1/4 c to this recipe. If all goes well, I’ll add a little more in the next batch.
    I love cutting this into single servings and freezing it. It’s nice to have variety for breakfast when you are rushing to get to work. Is your heritage Slovak? I’ve never seen the Slovak sauerkraut soup recipe anywhere. I love it, especially at the Christmas Eve dinner. I will be trying your soup recipe and your cabbage roll recipe. Keep up the great work!!!

  6. I’ve made this recipe dozens of times since it was first published a few years ago. There is scarcely another online recipe I’ve returned to so much.

    It turns out absolutely perfect every single time. Best ever make ahead breakfast.

    I love that you can mix it all in one bowl. I’m a busy mom and i dont have time for all those dishes.

    I love that is uses a whole can of pumpkin puree and not just 1/2 cup which other recipes do, leaving you to figure out what to do with the rest.
    Ive made it with many different types of milk, it always turns out great.

    Go make this right now, you will thank me later.
