Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

Thanksgiving is over. You have a little bit of pumpkin left over because it wouldn’t fit in the pie. What to do? Here’s what I did this morning. It was so good I just had to blog about it. There is white chocolate and freshly whipped cream involved. Yes, for breakfast. Don’t judge.

Update: I’ve been making this recipe with a 15 oz can of pumpkin puree and 4 cups of oats the last few times we had it. It is more moist that way, and makes more food for bigger families. You can’t go wrong doing it either way. I also omit the white chocolate chips most of the time.

Serves: 6
  • 2 eggs, lightly beaten
  • 1¼ cups milk
  • ⅓ cup butter, melted
  • ½ cup brown sugar
  • 2 T. molasses
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1 cup pureed pumpkin
  • 3½ cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1½ tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • ¼ tsp. allspice
  • ¼ tsp. nutmeg
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • ⅓ cup white chocolate morsels
  • ⅓ cup sliced almonds
  • ⅓ cup dried cranberries
  1. Heat oven to 350.
  2. Beat together the eggs, milk, butter, brown sugar, molasses, vanilla, and pumpkin.
  3. Mix in the rest of the ingredients.
  4. Pour into a 9x9 glass baking dish and bake, uncovered, for 40 minutes.
Adjust sugar amount down and use more molasses to make it less sweet. Mix-ins are optional and flexible. Use your imagination! We topped ours with freshly whipped cream. You should, too.

    I never judge people who bring fresh whipped cream to breakfast. I just ask for an invite 🙂 Sounds yummy! I might have to try it this weekend.
