Studded with pecans and laced with the perfect blend of warm spices, this cozy pumpkin baked oatmeal hits all the right notes! Whether you’re making a batch for a school morning, or a cozy weekend in, it’s sure to be a family favorite. (Gluten free, vegan-friendly)




  • 2 cups rolled oats (sometimes called old-fashioned). Use certified gluten-free as needed!
  • 1 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 tsp salt
  • 1 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • 1/4 tsp cardamom
  • 3/41 cup pecans


  • 1 1/2 cups milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1 cup pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup (plus more, for drizzling)
  • 1 Tbsp. chia seeds + 3 Tbsp water (or 1 egg, if not vegan)
  • 1/2 tsp vanilla


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F.
  2. In a large bowl, whisk together the oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, nutmeg, and cardamom. Add 1/2-3/4 cup of the pecans (and save the rest for sprinkling on top).
  3. In a medium bow, whisk together the wet ingredients–milk, pumpkin, syrup, chia egg/egg, and vanilla. Whisk until well combined.
  4. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry oatmeal mixture. Stir to combine well. Pour into a greased 8×8 (or 2 quart) baking dish. Sprinkle with additional pecans if you like.
  5. Bake at 350 degrees 25-30 minutes, or until the liquid has soaked in, the center is just set, and the edges are starting to turn golden.
  6. Serve with a drizzle of milk and a little syrup if you like!
  7. Oatmeal will keep 3-5 days in the refrigerator. To reheat, simply add a little extra milk and warm in the oven or microwave.


To make a chia “egg,” mix together 3 Tbsp water and 1 Tbsp chia seeds. Let it sit for 3-5 minutes and you’re ready to use it!
