How To Make Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
If you’ve made baked oatmeal before you know just how easy it is. It’s as easy as Prep + Mix + Pour + Bake.
Prep: First you’ll want to get your flax egg mixed so it can set up in the fridge. Next preheat the oven and grease your baking dish.
Mix: In a large mixing bowl mix together the wet ingredients then add in the dry and combine together.
Pour: Pour your oatmeal batter into the prepared baking dish.
Bake: Bake your pumpkin oatmeal for 30-35 minutes and done!
Substitutions and Additives:
Flax egg – In place of the flax egg you can either use Bob’s Red Mill Egg Replacer or use a chicken egg if that suits you better however the recipe will then no long be vegan.
Almond milk – any nut milk can be used in it’s place however if you use coconut milk which tends to be thicker I’d recommend using 1 1/4 cups coconut milk + 1/4 cup water in place of the 1 1/2 cups almond milk that is called for.
Maple syrup – Honey can be used in place of maple syrup but will make the recipe no longer vegan.
Additions – After pouring into the baking dish you can top the unbaked oatmeal with either walnuts, pecans or chocolate chips if you desire.

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal is perfect for a cozy healthy fall breakfast. This perfectly baked oatmeal recipe is awesome for a make-ahead breakfast or meal prep. Full of pumpkin puree, pumpkin pie spice and a touch of maple syrup, this easy pumpkin oatmeal bake will be a new family favorite! It’s also gluten free, dairy free and vegan.
Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal:
- 1 flax egg (1 Tbsp ground flax seed + 2 Tbsp water)
- 1.5 cups unsweetened almond milk
- 1 can pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie filling)
- 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
- 2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
- 2 cups gluten free rolled oats
- 1.5 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
- 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1/2 teaspoon unrefined sea salt
- Optional but recommended: coconut cream, pumpkin pie spice and pure maple syrup
- Combine the 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed with 2 Tablespoons water in a small bowl. Mix and place in the fridge for 15 minutes to set. (*If grinding your own you’ll need about 1/2 Tablespoon of seeds to achieve 1 Tablespoon of ground.)
- Preheat your oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 9×9 inch square baking dish with oil – I like using this avocado oil spray.
- In a large mixing bowl combine the flax egg, almond milk, pumpkin puree, maple syrup and vanilla and whisk it together.
- To the wet ingredients add the rolled oats, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon, baking powder and salt. Using a rubber spatula, stir the wet and dry ingredients together until combined.
- Pour the batter from the mixing bowl into your greased baking dish and bake for 30-35 minutes until the oatmeal is set.
- Once cooked, remove the baked oatmeal and allow it to cool completely if you desire perfectly cut squares that do not fall apart, if not allow to cool as long as you can and serve while warm topped with coconut cream, a drizzle of maple syrup and dash of pumpkin pie spice. Enjoy!
*Store all leftover oatmeal in the baking dish, covered in the fridge for up to 1 week.
*To reheat, bake the oatmeal squares on a parchment lined baking sheet for 10 minutes in a 350 degree preheated oven.

Question: in this recipe is says to make the flax egg it’s 1T ground flax seeds + 2T water, but in the linked page on how to make a flax egg, it says 1T ground flax seed+3T water. Which is correct please? Thanks!! 😊
Hi Holly, thank you for pointing this out! In this recipe I used 1 Tablespoon of ground flax seed mixed with 2 Tablespoons of water. I don’t expect that using 3 Tablespoons of water would cause an issue but thank you for addressing that. Enjoy!
