Given the pumpkin kick we’re on, when I saw this recipe for pumpkin baked oatmeal, I knew I had to try it. So, in Kelly-fashion, I took it and turned it into a soaked recipe, for improved nutrition. It did not disappoint.
Soaked Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal
The night before, mix into a large bowl and cover with a towel on the counter:
6 c rolled oats
2 c cultured milk
1/2 c melted butter
In the morning, preheat the oven to 350 degrees and grease a 9×13 baking dish. Then, add the following ingredients and mixing well. I always add all ingredients except my leavening at first. I mix well and then add baking powder so that I don’t over mix.
4 tsp vanilla
1 1/2 c Sucanat
1 1/2 c pumpkin
1 1/2 tsp salt
2 tsp cinnamon
2 tsp ground cloves
1/4 tsp nutmeg (this is all I had, but I’m sure more would be wonderful)
4 tsp baking powder
Mix well and pour into baking dish. Bake for 45 minutes.
This is wonderful served with a little milk poured over the top. It was a huge hit with the kids (my husband was actually served breakfast at work this morning, so he hasn’t had any yet).
