    Default "Baked oatmeal" pumpkin muffins - finally a baked oatmeal my kids will eat

    I'm so excited that my kids will eat this... and it's portable too!

    I made a few great changes -
    Skipped the applesauce and added the whole can of pumpkin
    Used coconut oil, for the oil
    Added 1 cup unsweetened coconut
    Added 1 cup chopped pecans
    Added a little vanilla
    Sprinkled TJ's maple sugar on top of some, couldn't tell the difference

    Next time, I'll might add some ground flax seed, an extra egg, dried cranberries or chocolate chips, and maybe some protein powder.

    I baked them for about 15 minutes, in muffin cups.


    Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

    2 eggs
    1/2 cup applesauce
    1/2 cup oil
    3/4 cup canned pumpkin (1/2 of 15 oz. can)
    2 1/4 cups milk
    1/4 cup maple syrup or syrup
    1/2 cup brown sugar
    2 1/2 teaspoon homemade pumpkin pie spice
    1 Tablespoon baking powder
    1 teaspoon salt
    1/2 cup wheat flour
    4 cups quick cooking oats
    *
    Directions
    Preheat oven to 350. Lightly grease a 9×13 inch baking dish with non-stick cooking spray.
    In a stand mixer or large mixing bowl, beat together the eggs, applesauce, oil, canned pumpkin, milk, syrup and brown sugar until smooth.
    Add in the pie spice, baking powder, salt, flour and oats. Beat on low until “loose” batter forms. (It will seem runny, that’s OK!)
    Pour batter into the greased baking dish and bake in the preheated oven for 30-35 minutes, or until cooked through in the center of the dish.
    Let cool slightly before serving. Serve with milk, yogurt, Greek yogurt, or as is.
    Note: If you prefer it a little sweeter, add a little brown sugar or maple syrup. Enjoy!

    ETA: I reduced the milk, to 2 cups

    Baking them in muffin tins is brilliant. Way less mess from cutting. I am making a pumpkin batch this week too, I will have to try the muffin tin idea.
