Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal for One

It’s no secret that I loved my boatmeal (baked oatmeal –  coined by chocolatecoveredkatie) yesterday. So today for my snack I obviously had to try another. I’d say it turned out wonderfully, this would be a great after school snack for any kid. It’s definitely a way to introduce oatmeal/less refined grains into a diet.
Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal for One (serves 1, obviously!)
Ingredients:
  • 1/2 cup oats (50g)
  • 1/4 tsp vanilla extract
  • 1/2 tsp cinnamon (and 1/8 tsp nutmeg, if making pumpkin version)
  • sweetener, such as 1 1/2 to 2T maple syrup or 1 to 1 1/2 packs stevia
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup milk or creamer or water
  • 1/8 tsp salt
  • Optional: 1 to 2T oil or favorite nut butter (if oil, scale the milk back a tiny bit)
  • Optional: raisins, walnuts, brown sugar for the top (I didn’t use any optional ingredients)
Directions:

Preheat oven to 380 degrees. Combine raw oats, spices, pumpkin, and milk. Pour into a small baking pan, 1-cup ramekin, or mini-loaf pan. Cook for 20 minutes, or more until it gets firm. Finally, set your oven to “high broil” for 3 more minutes, or until it reaches desired crispy-ness (or simply just bake longer, but broiling gives it a nice crust).
