Pumpkin Maple Baked Oatmeal

The weather is finally changing a bit here in Houston and I am still enjoying some variation of my baked oatmeal each weekday morning. If you’ve been reading this blog for a little while, 1. Thank you! ๐Ÿ™‚ 2. you’ve probably picked up on my affinity for all-in-one dishes. I like to get different flavors, nutritional value, and multiple textures into each mealย and dirty as few dishes as possible. So, in transitioning this dish to a more “Fall” flavor palette, I did just that. This baked oatmeal has berries, nuts, apples, and of course a lightย orange color from pumpkin. I hope you’ll try it and let me know what you think.

Slide03

Ingredients

1 honey-crisp apple, chopped

4 cups whole oats

3 rounded teaspoons canned pumpkin

1.5 tablespoons brown sugar

1 tablespoon maple syrup

1 palmful dried cranberries

About six walnuts, broken into pieces

1 large egg

1 2/3 cups milk (I used unsweetened almond)

4 tablespoons butter, melted and cooled

Dash of cinnamon

Dash of sea salt

Makes six servings.

Slide02

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Thoroughly mix all dry ingredients (oats, sugar, apple, walnuts, cranberries, cinnamon, and sea salt) together in a large bowl.

Slide05
Slide06

In a smaller bowl, mix together melted butter and pumpkin.

Slide07

Add egg and whisk until mixed, then mix in milk and syrup (make sure syrup doesn’t just sink to bottom of bowl).

Slide09

Pour dry mixture into a square baking pan and shake lightly to level it, if necessary.

Slide10

Pour wet mixture over pan, covering all the dry. Use a fork to fully incorporate the two, ensuring there are no dry “pockets” in the pan.

Slide11

Bake for 28 minutes or until top of oatmeal is firm (but not hard) to pressure. Refrigerate if using for a meal-prep. Keeps for about a week.
