Baked Pumpkin Pie Oats

pumpkinpieoatsCreamy baked pumpkin oats with hints of maple and cinnamon. The perfect breakfast to feed a crowd or have on reserve to quickly heat up during the week. A nourishing breakfast packed with fiber, protein and flavor.

pumpkinpieoats2I prepared this the morning of Thanksgiving and it was definitely a crowd-pleaser!  What better way to start the holiday than with something pumpkin flavored?? Trick question ;).

This dish is super quick and easy to throw together. First, slice up two ripe bananas and arrange the slices on the bottom of a lightly greased glass or ceramic baking dish (pictured below). Drizzle 1/8 cup of pure maple syrup or honey over the banana slices and top with ~1 tsp of pumpkin pie spice. You could also use cinnamon if you don’t have the pumpkin pie spice on hand. Pop in the oven for ~10 minutes at 350 degrees F to allow the bananas to slightly caramelize.

Combine all wet ingredients (pumpkin puree, liquid egg whites, vanilla and milk) and mix with an electric mixer until well combined. Spoon in dry ingredients (oats, baking powder and pumpkin pie spice) and stir until well combined.

After allowing the bananas to bake for 10 minutes, take them out of the oven and pour the oat mixture right on top. Place back in the oven and bake uncovered for an additional 35 minutes.

Remove from the oven and pour remaining 1/8 cup maple syrup right on top of the baked oats, spreading evenly with a spoon.

Allow the oats to sit for about 10 minutes to let the maple syrup seep in.. this is where your patience may be tested.

I topped my first serving with a dollop of plain Greek yogurt, a little homemade vanilla granola and a pinch of cinnamon.

My second serving I took a walk on the wild side and topped it with a spoonful of Justin’s Maple Almond Butter, another drizzle of maple syrup and more sliced bananas (not pictured, unfortunately). I inhaled the second slice too fast to snag a photo, but take my word.. AAh-mazing.

Between the maple syrup and the bananas, this had the perfect dose of sweetness for me. However, if you prefer your oats on the sweeter side, you can easily adjust the sweetness-factor by adding a little brown sugar, Stevia or extra maple syrup before baking.  As far as the toppings, you can just be as liberal as your heart desires ;).
