Wake up to a fun, seasonal breakfast with this hearty and healthy pumpkin butterscotch baked oatmeal!
Pumpkin Butterscotch Baked Oatmeal
I eat an outrageous amount of oatmeal. It is one of my favorite breakfasts– and honestly, one of my favorite foods, period. Quick, versatile, filling, and good for you… what’s not to love?
Of all the ways to eat oatmeal, I have a soft spot for baking it, especially during the colder months. I really like the way the texture changes when it’s baked– you can almost imagine that you’re eating a big breakfast cookie! 🙂
I tend to make my baked oatmeal in big batches so I can freeze some for later. It’s an ideal breakfast to have on hand for hectic mornings, when you need something filling but are short on time. Of course, baked oatmeal is lovely for slower mornings, too– you can’t beat the deliciousness of breakfast straight from the oven.
The pumpkin here is subtle and light, but perfectly complemented by the butterscotch chips. A bit more under-represented (but just as delicious!) as the pumpkin-chocolate chip pairing, pumpkin and butterscotch is a combination I love, and it makes a sweet and delightful start to the morning!
- ½ cup oats
- ¼ cup almond milk
