If you love all things pumpkin, you will love this oatmeal!
Prep Time10 minutes
Cook Time40 minutes


  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup applesauce
  • 1/2 cup oil
  • 3/4 cup canned pumpkin (1/2 of 15 oz. can)
  • 2 1/4 cups milk
  • 1/4 cup maple syrup or syrup
  • 1/2 cup brown sugar
  • 2 1/2 tsp homemade pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 tbsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 cup wheat flour
  • 4 cups quick cooking oats


  • Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9x13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
  • In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, applesauce, oil, canned pumpkin, milk, syrup and brown sugar until smooth.
  • Add in the pie spice, baking powder, salt, flour and oats. Beat on low until "loose" batter forms. (It will seem runny, that's OK!)
  • Pour batter into the greased baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until cooked through in the center of the dish.
  • Let cool slightly before serving. Serve with milk, yogurt, Greek yogurt, or as is.
  • Note: If you prefer it a little sweeter, add a little brown sugar or maple syrup. Enjoy!

Freeze/Thaw Instructions

  • To Freeze: Let the oatmeal cool completely, cut into single serving sizes (I usually do squares), and freeze individual portions in plastic baggies.
  • To Thaw: Drop the frozen oatmeal square into a bowl, and defrost it in the microwave for a minute, then warm it at regular temp for a minute, then add milk or yogurt and any other toppings and gobble it up!

Gluten Free Notes

  • Gluten Free Version: Equal substitutions of all-purpose GF baking mix or brown rice flour for flour, certified GF quick cooking oats for quick cooking oats.
