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!

Let’s talk about overnight oats!

What are overnight oats?

Overnight oats are regular oats (old fashioned) that have been soaked in liquid overnight, absorbing it, and getting nice and spongy in the refrigerator overnight. It’s looks a little like mush, but I promise they’re delicious!

When the oats soak up the liquid (any non dairy milk in this case) their texture becomes creamy and spongy. The added pumpkin puree also soaks into the oats, giving them a hearty texture and that pumpkin flavor that is is quintessential fall.

Pumpkin overnight oats are a great on-the-go breakfast that you can easily make in a jar or throw into a container and top with different fruit, nuts, seeds, and nut butters.

I like to get creative with different flavors and fruit that’s in season when I’m on an overnight oat kick to keep it fun. In the fall though, it’s all about pumpkin oats — hot, cold or baked! Fruit that would be really good on top of this overnight pumpkin oatmeal are:

  • banana slices
  • diced apples
  • blueberries
  • blackberries

Benefits of Adding Pumpkin Puree to Overnight Oats

Pumpkin puree enhances the texture and flavor of these overnight oats and adds nutrition to every bite! Pumpkin is a good source of vitamin A, C, E potassium and fiber. I recommend keeping a can or two in your pantry year round!

I mixed flax seeds in with the oats, pumpkin puree and almond milk because they add to the nice texture of these oats and are a good source of healthy fat, fiber and magnesium.

Sure it’s awesome in sweet treats and pumpkin spice lattes, but pumpkin puree can also be delicious in savory dishes like soups, chilis, and pastas. If you love everything pumpkin as much as I do be sure to check out my cookbook, The Great Big Pumpkin Cookbook too!
