Apple Pumpkin Pie. Doesn’t that sound like a delectable combination? The best two fall flavors around, in my opinion. This oatmeal combines them both. Apple pumpkin pie oatmeal is so cozy and comforting and perfect for fall.

Speaking of, fall is in the air, can you feel it? It was in the low to mid 70s this weekend, such a nice change of pace. I woke up yesterday morning craving a fall breakfast. Lucky for me, I had some of this Apple Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal to reheat.

Although it’s supposed to get back into the 80s this week, I’m hopping on the pumpkin train. I’ve been on the apple train for quite a while (since we went apple picking), but now that the weather has cooled down, it seems more appropriate to indulge in pumpkin things. And that’s how I came up with the wonderful combination of them both:  apple + pumpkin, apple pumpkin pie!

 

Why Apple Pumpkin Pie 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, it has really come 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. Convenience is huge when it comes to breakfast.

And obviously, breakfasts that have staying power win me over. 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.

So, nothing you need to think or worry about, but know you’re nourishing your body really well with this fall breakfast option.

Furthermore, I love recipes that come together quickly. From start to finish, this Apple Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal is ready in under an hour. 

What Do You Need For An Apple Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal?

The key ingredients you’ll need are:

  • apples
  • pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix)
  • oats
  • eggs
  • maple syrup
  • brown sugar

We’ve added a little bit of brown sugar too for that caramelization taste, but if you prefer, you can just add more maple syrup.

We’re getting additional fiber from whole grain oats, and natural sugar from maple syrup.

Finished Apple Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal

I don’t think I realized how well apple and pumpkin go together. They combine to give a mild sweetness with some spice that is just reminiscent of fall. The result is a soft and chewy oatmeal bake.

It tastes best warm, in my opinion.

Plus, there’s the fact that the oven smell makes your kitchen smell like an apple orchard and pumpkin pie together. It’s delicious. 

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 a good homemade trail mix. 

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

  2. 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! 🙂

  3. 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!

    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).
