❤️ pumpkin maple baked oatmeal ❤️

dessert, mains, recipes


this hearty baked oatmeal is great for meal prep! the combination of oats, pumpkin, applesauce and seeds makes for a filling breakfast or snack.

makes 8-12 servings



  • 1 1/2c vanilla sweetened plant milk (you can use plain here as well, this is just my preference)
  • 1/4c maple syrup, plus about 1 tablespoon for drizzling
  • 1c pumpkin puree
  • 1 tablespoon natural applesauce
  • 1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • ~1 tablespoon vegan butter, for greasing (can sub with non-stick spray or hail mary it by lining the baking dish with parchment)


  • 2c oats (i used instant – both instant and rolled work, but instant gives it a puffier, softer texture)
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon, plus more for sprinkling
  • 1 tablespoon ground flax seed
  • 1 tablespoon of sugar, for sprinkling (optional)
  • mix-ins of choice – i used 1/4c pumpkin seeds (reserved some for sprinkling) and 2 tablespoons hemp seeds. walnuts would be beautiful here!


  1. preheat the oven to 375F
  2. combine all of the wet ingredients and dry ingredients separately, then mix together until all ingredients are well-blended and evenly distributed.
  3. pour mixture into a prepared baking dish – i used a standard 9×13 glass pan. please feel free to use a smaller pan, and just add baking time in five minute increments.
  4. sprinkle the top with cinnamon and any toppings of choice.
  5. bake for 20-25 minutes, or until the top begins to crack. the cracking top is your best indicator for when it’s ready – this is especially important if you’re using a different pan size!
  6. while cooling, sprinkle with sugar, if using, and maple syrup. i know this sounds very over-sweet, but the mixture itself is quite savory! the sweetness comes predominantly from the topping.
  7. let cool for about 10-15 minutes before serving. enjoy with a glass of cold plant milk or coffee!
  8. to reheat leftovers, simply place in a pre-heated oven at 350F for 5-7 minutes.
