  • 1 ~ 15 oz can pumpkin puree
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 large eggs
  • 1/2 TBS pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 3/4 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp vanilla
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 2 1/2 cups dry old fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup pecans chopped (optional)
  • 1/2 cup raisins optional


  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees.
  • In a large mixing bowl add pumpkin, brown sugar, eggs, pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder and vanilla. Whisk together. Add milk and whisk until incorporated.
  • Add the oats, pecans and raisins to the pumpkin mixture and stir together.
  • Spray an 8 x 8 inch baking dish with cooking spray and pour the mixture into it.
  • Bake for 45 minutes until done.
  • Serve hot with milk. Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal can be refrigerated and then reheated as needed in the microwave.


Other add ins would work in place of the pecans or raisins like other nuts and dried fruit. Even chocolate chips would be a special treat!

    That looks delicious! I have been fortunate enough to enjoy baked oatmeal in Lancaster County… my favorite being blueberry baked oatmeal at the Family Cupboard back when it was over by the Harvest Drive Inn. It was the most amazing breakfast food I had ever eaten! Your recipe looks so good and really easy….I will definitely give it a try!

  4. We love this and have been making it often. It is like cake without the guilt. I make it with almond milk and coconut sugar. Today I tried mashed bananas, walnuts and chopped apricots…banana bread (ish) ! Next comes applesauce, apples,almonds.

  40. Yvonne,
    This sounds yummy! Is pumpkin puree the same as the Libby’s pumpkin in the can that you use for pumpkin pie? Thanks and I continue to enjoy your blog very much. Happy fall! Nancee

  41. I love baked oatmeal. I have an amish baked oatmeal recipe with cinnamon and nutmeg that I eat every morning. I put pecans or walnuts and dried cranberries. I can’t wait to try this Thank you for the recipe.

  42. I love this recipe. I’d like to try it with apples. Do you have an Apple version? Could I just switch Apple sauce for the pumpkin without changing the texture and moistness?

    1. No, but you might want to try using applesauce instead of pumpkin. Let me now how it turns out.
