Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal

Updated: Mar 1, 2023


This simple recipe makes for both an easy breakfast and a delicious dessert!

It is vegan, plant-based, gluten-free, and pumpkin-spice, sooo… Safe for all to enjoy.

Oats are also a whole grain that is rich in fiber, supporting healthy digestion and working to control both blood pressure and blood sugar.


INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 cups rolled oats

  • 2 small baked sweet potatoes (mashed) OR small can of pumpkin puree

  • 1 cup non-dairy milk of choice (I prefer soy milk)

  • 2 flax eggs (aka 2 tbsp ground flaxseed + 6 tbsp warm water)

  • 1/2c walnuts or nuts of choice

  • 2 tbsp maple syrup or raw honey

  • 1tsp vanilla extract

  • 1/2tsp pumpkin pie spice

  • 1/2tsp cinnamon

  • pinch of salt

  • Optionally, I sometimes add 2 scoops of a protein powder, like my favorite plant-based vanilla from KOS –> https://glnk.io/wnyxl/bewellwithsteph

PREPARATION:

  1. Preheat the oven to 350° and lightly oil or spray a baking pan. I use a 9×9.

  2. Whisk flax and water in a large mixing bowl and let stand a few minutes.

  3. Add remaining wet ingredients (milk, potato/pumpkin, syrup/honey, and vanilla).

  4. Mix in dry ingredients (oats and spices).

  5. Press the mixture into your baking pan and bake for about 30 minutes, or until a knife would come out almost clean. Some of the pumpkin will remain moist, but that’s ok!

  6. Cool and cut into bars. I recommend a healthy serving is about 1/6 pan.


I hope you enjoy this yummy and nutritious start to your day!

When it calls for 2 TBSP of flax egg is it 2 TBSP of flax seeds ground, or 2 TBSP of ground flax?

Do you recommend eating these warmed or room temp?

Either is OK, although I prefer warm! Also after a day or so I refrigerate it, so I like to heat it up
