Pecan Pie Baked Oatmeal – This cozy pecan baked oatmeal recipe has notes of cinnamon, vanilla, maple, and pecans to make a delicious meal-prep breakfast your whole family will fall in love with. (Gluten-Free, Vegan-Friendly) 



For the Baked Oatmeal:

  • 2 cups rolled oats (certified gluten-free, if needed)
  • 1 tsp. baking powder
  • 1 tsp. cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp. salt
  • 2 cups milk (I use unsweetened almond milk)
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 egg (or 1 chia or flax egg* for vegan)
  • 2 Tbsp. butter, vegan butter, or coconut oil, melted
  • 1 1/2 tsp. vanilla extract

For the Pecan Topping:

  • 2 Tbsp. butter or vegan butter
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup
  • 1 cup pecans (roughly chopped or whole)


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Grease a 2-quart baking dish (like an 8×8 or 9×9″ pan).
  2. In a large bowl, combine oats, baking powder, cinnamon, and salt. Stir to combine.
  3. Pour in milk, syrup, egg or chia egg, melted butter/oil, and vanilla. Stir to combine.
  4. Pour oatmeal mixture into your prepared baking dish.
  5. In a small saucepan on the stovetop (or in a microwave-safe bowl), melt together 2 Tbsp. butter and 1/4 cup syrup. Add the pecans and stir to coat.
  6. Pour the pecan mixture over the oatmeal mixture and smooth out with your spatula.
  7. Bake at 350 degrees for 35-40 minutes, or until the oatmeal has plumped and the top is golden.
  8. Remove from the oven and let stand about 5 minutes before scooping or slicing.


*To make a chia egg, combine 1 Tbsp. chia egg + 3 Tbsp. water. Whisk together and let it sit a few minutes to gel and thicken. Whisk again once before adding to the recipe.
