Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Now that the weather is getting cooler and will be downright cold before we know it we’re switching from cold cereal to warmer breakfasts like oatmeal. Besides being REALLY good for you you can add just about any flavor to it you like. Right now I have pumpkin on the brain. Pumpkin + Oatmeal = a wicked good baked pumpkin pie oatmeal. Happy kids. Happy me. I blame Thanksgiving and fall for my pumpkin obsession. I’m not quite sure why I save my pumpkin binge solely for this time of year. But that’s a conversation for another day.

You can make oatmeal stove top in the microwave or in the oven. I happen to prefer the later. Baked oatmeal is like a warm blanket on a cold day and happens to be SO much easier to make in my opinion. You could even make this the night before and pop it into the oven while you’re getting dressed the next morning.
