Apple Pumpkin Pie. Doesn’t that sound like a delectable combination? The best two fall flavors around, in my opinion.

These pumpkin pie baked oats will have your whole kitchen smelling like fresh fall, with flavors of apple pie added in.

Apple pumpkin pie oatmeal is so cozy and comforting and perfect for fall. We tend to enjoy seasonal produce, and apple and pumpkin recipes can be stellar.

We love chocolate baked oats year round, and baked strawberry oatmeal and peach baked oatmeal in summer. And in the cold winter months to boost immunity, I’ll make this turmeric oatmeal.

Anyway, I’ve been on the apple train and apple pie overnight oats have been a constant here for quite a while. I’ve even made this apple potato bread for the toddlers and they loved it.

But, now that the weather has cooled down, it seems more appropriate to indulge in pumpkin things as well, or maybe just the combination of an apple pumpkin recipe.

And that’s how I came up with the wonderful combination of them both:  apple + pumpkin, apple pumpkin pie!

Have you ever tried baked apples with oats? So good. This is kind of like that – just better.

Another worthy recipe are these apple sweet potato muffins – try those next!

Ingredients For Pumpkin Apple Baked Oats

To make this pumpkin apple baked oatmeal, gather:

  • Apples – You can use your choice here! I personally love gala or honeycrisp. I’d avoid green apples for this recipe.
  • Pumpkin puree – Make sure not to use pumpkin pie mix, they are different. You want canned pumpkin puree.
  • Oats – We use rolled often. Quick cooking oats will also work.
  • Eggs
  • maple syrup
  • Brown sugar – This is another sweetener option. You can easily cut down on the added sugars by reducing the amount of maple sugar and/or brown sugar, but I find it provides a nice fall flavor and smell as well as a caramelization.
  • Spices – We used cinnamon, nutmeg, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract. Everything fall.
Making apple pumpkin pie baked oatmeal

This apple baked oatmeal is an easy breakfast option.

I go through phases of the year with baked oatmeal. It really speaks to me in the fall, especially. I love heating it up and putting a blob of peanut butter, yogurt and fruit on it.

Plus, any form of meal prep oatmeal really comes in handy for those busy days and weeks.

I started putting it in single serving containers so I just grab it on my way out the door before my early clients.

Nutrition Content of Pumpkin Apple Baked Oatmeal

Apples are full of fiber, Vitamin C, and polyphenols (which act like antioxidants in our bodies).

Pumpkin also boasts fiber and Vitamin C, but is also high in Vitamin A, iron and magnesium, micronutrients that are often overlooked in our diets.

So, nothing you need to think or worry about, but know you’re nourishing your body really well with this fall breakfast option. Apple baked oats in the morning can start your day and provide you with essential nutrients!

Furthermore, I love recipes that come together quickly. From start to finish, these pumpkin apple baked oats are ready in under an hour.

How to Make Apple Pumpkin Oatmeal

For your pumpkin apple baked oats, you’ll mix your eggs, pumpkin, vanilla, maple syrup, spices, salt and baking powder in a bowl.

Then, add in the almond milk and whisk.

Lastly, you’ll add in the oats and chopped apples and throw it in the oven. And, 40-45 minutes later, you’re done!

Let the smell of apple pumpkin pie take over your kitchen – hands down, the best part of these apple baked oats. Apples do some magic caramelization in the oven, and the pumpkin sweetens too, and it’s just so magical.

Mixed ingredients for apple pumpkin pie baked oatmeal

I don’t think I realized how well apple and pumpkin go together until combining pumpkin into these apple baked oats.

They give a mild sweetness with some spice that is just reminiscent of fall. The result is a soft and chewy oatmeal bake that tastes best warmed, with melted butter or nut butter.

These are also good as “bars” for weekday snack options.

Some of my favorite meal prep snacks include these bars, my chocolate fudge bites and easy trail mix bars.

Meal prep is essential, especially now with Camryn in daycare, so I’m thankful for quick, easy meal prep breakfast recipes.

Can You Freeze Baked Oatmeal?

If you want to prepare this for later (or to freeze), simply complete steps 1-5 but don’t bake the baked oatmeal. Instead, prep it and cover it with a few layers of plastic wrap and aluminum foil and place in the freezer.

When ready to prepare, I would recommend letting it thaw for 18-24 hours in the fridge before baking.

If baking straight from the freezer, know that it may take a little longer to cook, since the ingredients are frozen, and you want to ensure the middle is cooked through.

You can put some extra layers of foil on top before baking to prevent overcooking and burning. 

For a list of other easy freezer meals, this post is very inclusive!

    1. Hi Eleanor, I didn’t test with canned milk. I would think it should work, however it is heavier in fat and may be a little thicker and have a nuttier taste. If you give it a try, let us know! 🙂

  1. This looks great! I want to make this for my son and daughter-in-law that just had a baby to freeze so they have it when they want it. I have a question though, can regular milk be used in place of the vanilla almond milk? I have everything else just not the almond milk and was hoping to save another trip to the store.

    1. Hi Danielle – If you want to prep this to freeze, complete through step 5 (do not bake). Instead, wrap baking dish in a few layers of plastic wrap and one of foil and place in freezer. When ready to prepare, I’d recommend thawing it in the fridge for 24 hours before baking. If you want to bake from frozen, just make sure to cover the oatmeal with foil (you may have to bake a little longer to ensure middle is cooked through).

  2. Mmmm it’s like having fall for breakfast! 🙂
    The weather here is still pretty warm but thankfully the mornings are at least cool, which means I’ve been craving all things oatmeal lately! I haven’t done the baked oatmeal thing since LAST fall, so I’m ready to jump back into it!

  3. This looks really yummy! I’ve been on such a big baked oatmeal kick, lately, and was planning to share a pumpkin baked oatmeal recipe later this week sooo great minds think alike! 🙂

  4. I’m sure this smells amazing while baking! I just stocked up on pumpkin from Trader Joe’s. This looks like a great recipe!

  5. Mmmm. I love all pumpkin baking but baked oats are my favorite thing to make with it, by far. I like all baked oats but mostly I just wait until I feel allowed to make it with pumpkin…haha. Great recipe!!
