Oatmeal is such a staple breakfast in so many households! In this recipe, instead of cooking it on the stove, we baked it so it has a more compact feel and you can have several portions in one go! A sweet and perfectly spiced baked oatmeal!
Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Gently grease a loaf pan with coconut oil or line it with parchment paper. Set aside.
In a large bowl, add the oats, chia seeds, spices, baking powder, and salt.
In a medium bowl, whisk together the milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup, and vanilla extract.
Add the liquid to the dry ingredients and mix to combine.
Pour the oatmeal into the loaf pan. Sprinkle the pecans and pumpkin seeds on top of the oats. Bake for 15 minutes.
Remove the oats from the oven and serve it immediately while it’s hot. Use a large spoon to scoop a serving into a bowl. Drizzle with maple syrup and enjoy!
