Pumpkin Pecan Baked Oatmeal
I’ve never eaten a lot of oatmeal. Growing up, grits was the breakfast staple in our household. It wasn’t that I didn’t like oatmeal. It was more about the fact that my mom didn’t really make oatmeal much. As a result, I’ve never been a big oatmeal eater as an adult. I guess it’s all about what you’re used to. That all changed once I tried baked oatmeal.
I was working on my first cookbook when I wanted to include a breakfast supplemental e-book to offer as an incentive for preorders. Scanning through some old recipe cards, I found a recipe for baked oatmeal. And hour later I was in love. Baked oatmeal gives you all the great flavor and nuttiness of granola. It’s nothing like the gummy, sticky instant oatmeal I remember as a child. This stuff is amazing. I like it so much, I took that basic recipe and adapted it into several other recipes varying the flavors a bit.
This Pumpkin Pecan Baked Oatmeal is my new favorite. It almost comes out cake like with an even nuttier flavor than the original recipe. Combined with the classic pumpkin spice and pecan flavors of fall, it’s a real treat. Even my mom, who really doesn’t care for oatmeal, loves this stuff.
It reheats well too. So much so, that I often make a batch of this on the weekend just to have it as a quick and easy breakfast during the week.
You guys are going to love this not only because of the amazing flavor, but also because of how ridiculously easy it is to make. It’s oen fo thsoe dump and stir recipes that wil amke your morning a breeze.
