This post is sponsored by The Quaker Oats Company but all opinions are my own.

Nothing seems more fitting as a breakfast option on a cool fall morning than pumpkin pie baked oatmeal! Made with pantry staples like Quaker Old Fashioned Oats, pumpkin puree, fall spices and maple syrup, it will fill your whole house with the scent of fall as it bakes in your oven. 

As the fall is a super busy time for me (especially this one with the wedding coming up so soon!) I appreciate having a nourishing make ahead breakfast time option like pumpkin baked oatmeal as one of my go-tos when my days are busy. Baking this oatmeal recipe on a Sunday and having it for the next few days as a breakfast option is convenient and nourishing. 

I’ve been a fan of using Quaker Oats with breakfast and in my recipes for as long as I can remember and I’m excited to share this recipe with you and tell you more about a cause Quaker is committed to this year and how you can get involved!

Quaker Good Call Challenge

For more than 140 years, Quaker has stood by its belief that life’s circumstances should never be a barrier to good nutrition and that one small act can have a big impact on people facing food insecurity. As a dietitian I’m proud to partner with a company that is committed to helping tackle hunger and contributing to a solution to the food insecurity issues facing our country. 

Quaker, the official oatmeal sponsor of the NFL, is acting on this purpose by teaming up with Feeding America® and a few fan favorites – Drew Brees, Jerry Rice and Jerome Bettis – to encourage people to make a good call for themselves and others and help tackle hunger

As we enter the giving season, Quaker has committed to donating $125,000 to Feeding America – which can help secure at least 1.25 million meals* – and is asking others to join through the Quaker Good Call Challenge. Today, Feeding America is the nation’s largest domestic hunger-relief organization and a powerful and efficient network of 200 food banks and 60,000 food pantries and meal programs across the country.

To join in, from now until Dec. 31, simply look for spare change around your home, collect it in an empty canister or container (like after you’ve enjoyed your Quaker Oats!), and take it to participating Coinstar locations (excludes NY, SD, and VT) and selecting Feeding America to submit your donation. 

*The monetary equivalent of meals will be donated. $1 helps provide at least 10 meals secured by Feeding America on behalf of local member food banks. Quaker has committed $125,000.00. Valid: October 20 – December 31, 2021

Pumpkin Apple Baked Oatmeal

Wake up with a slice of this cozy pumpkin apple baked oatmeal made with pumpkin, apples and warm fall spices! It makes for the perfect nutrient dense breakfast on a chilly fall morning!

Pumpkin apple baked oatmeal is packed with all of the warm fall spices as well as good nutrition, making it the perfect way to start your day in the fall!

One of my favorite things to do in the fall is to go apple picking — the taste of a perfectly ripe, crispy apple, the smell of an apple orchard, and the chill in the air, I love it all! Apple slices with nut butter and pumpkin pie spice are the perfect fall snack and this baked oatmeal recipe is a perfect way to use up fresh apples too!

To me, fall and oatmeal are basically synonymous. Warm baked oatmeal makes for a delicious breakfast on a chilly morning and fall flavors and spices like apples, pumpkin, cinnamon, and ginger complement oats so well! What I love about this pumpkin apple baked oatmeal recipe is that you can make it ahead of time for breakfast all week — and don’t forget the nut butter drizzle on top!

I used honeycrisp apples in this recipe, but feel free to use whichever you like best or have on hand from apple picking. I don’t think you can go wrong! I like the little pieces of apple baked into the oatmeal because they balance out the chewy oats with a little bit of tart sweetness.

Why Pumpkin Apple Baked Oatmeal is a Great Breakfast

This oatmeal recipe is a a great breakfast because it starts your day with a lot of important nutrition that some of us don’t get enough of. Fiber, I’m looking at you!

Both oats, pumpkin and apples are a great source of fiber. Oats contain a soluble fiber called beta-glucan which helps to lower cholesterol. They also give this baked oatmeal more protein per bite.

Pumpkin, pumpkin seeds and apples also contribute to the fiber content of this recipe, that will help fuel your morning and keep you fuller for longer. I love topping a slice with creamy, unsweetened almond butter or peanut butter, which gives it some healthy fat that helps with satiety too!

This pumpkin apple baked oatmeal is great one to prep ahead of time for the week. The fall brings back schedules and routines that we may have neglected during the summer and having this ready to go for breakfast during the week is one less thing you have to think about. Instead, it’s something you can feel good about eating!
