Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal (w/ Apples & Pecans)

Fall is nearing an end, and here you have my favorite breakfast for this time of year! It's healthy, hearty, and by far the most delicious oatmeal preparation out there (in my humble opinion). Read more on why I love baked oatmeal & another great recipe here. If you haven't tried it yet, I promise, you will never go stove top/microwave again. For those of you who have, you feel me, right??


Dry Ingredients
* 2 cups old fashioned oats
* 1 1/2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
* 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger
* 1/4 teaspoon fresh ground nutmeg
* 1/2 teaspoon salt
* 1 1/2 teaspoons baking powder
Wet Ingredients
* 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
* 1 egg
* 1/3 cup maple syrup (the real stuff)
* 1 teaspoon vanilla
* 3/4 cup milk
* 1/2 cup pecans or walnuts, chopped 
* 1 apple, diced
* Preheat oven to 350 F.
* Butter/grease an 8 x 8 baking dish.
* In a large bowl, combine the dry ingredients (except the pecans and apples).
* In a medium bowl, combine the wet ingredients.
* Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients, and stir to combine.
 * Pour the oatmeal mixture into the dish and spread evenly.
* Top with apples and pecans, and press slightly into top of mixture. (Optional: dot the top with a little butter.)
 * Bake for 30-35 minutes until golden brown.

* And EAT FRESH!! I like to serve mine with a little milk (vanilla almond milk is perfect!) and a touch of brown sugar...
