Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal: Method 

This is a really simple recipe with nothing exceptional to note about the making of it!

Simply mix together your dry & wet ingredients separately and then stir them together! Pop in your greased pan and bake! When it’s done, the top will spring back when pressed and the sides will be slightly brown.

Note: You will have extra cream cheese glaze. However I never consider that a problem! 😉 My kids love adding extra “frosting” {and let’s be honest, I do too}!

Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal: Substitutions

This recipe is absolutely delicious as-is, but here are a few possible substitutions!

Quick-cooking oats. Old-fashioned oats Taste delicious innyuiscrecipe. You will have to increase the bake time and the end result will be chewier! Steel cut oats will not work in this recipe.

Almond meal. If you are allergic to nuts there are are few possible substitutions: oat flour, all-purpose gluten-free flour, tapioca flour/starch, all-purpose or whole wheat flour (not gluten-free).

Maple syrup. Honey is a delicious substitute for maple syrup.

Egg. For a vegan version substitute a chia/flax egg. To make: Mix 1 TBS ground chia or flax seeds with 2 1/2 TBS warm water and let stand for 5 minutes.

Almond milk. Any variety of dairy or non-dairy milk works well in this recipe!

Cream cheese. For a vegan version either omit the glaze or use a vegan cream cheese! This Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal with a Maple Cinnamon Cream Cheese Glaze is the perfect healthy fall breakfast recipe.
