This Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal is made with gluten-free oats, filled with pumpkin pie spice and naturally sweetened dates. The perfect breakfast for a chilly fall morning!

As the mornings are starting to getting chillier, the desire for a cozy, warm bowl of oatmeal and a cup of steaming hot coffee become greater. This Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal (for two) is perfect for a fall morning🍂 Made with gluten-free oats, fresh pumpkin, and naturally sweetened with Joolies Cinnamon Date Syrup for a cozy vegan breakfast (or snack)!

We topped ours with Cocojune Coconut yogurt, fresh blueberries, Kween and Co. Granola Butter, pumpkin seeds, and more cinnamon date syrup (duh)👅

Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients in these oats:

    1. Gluten-Free Oats
      • We recommend using quick or rolled oats to create the creamy texture. Some of our favorite gluten-free oat brands are Thrive Market and Bob's Red Mill
    2. Joolies Cinnamon Date Syrup 
    3. Joolies Pitted Dates 
      • Medjool dates add lil sweet caramel-y bites, while packing in good nutrients like magnesium, potassium, antioxidants and more.
    4. Pumpkin Puree
    5. Chia Seeds
      • These help to thicken the oats while also being a great source of healthy fats, fiber, and protein. 
    6. Dairy-Free Milk
      • To keep it vegan, we went with an almond milk, but any dairy-free milk will work perfectly. If you're out of milk, you can substitute with water, it just won't be as creamy. 
    7. Pumpkin Pie Spice and Cinnamon 
      • These add that "pumpkin spice" favor we all love!  

 

Optional Add-ins:

    1. Protein Powder
      • If you're wanting a bit more protein in the morning, just add in your favorite protein powder (or collagen peptides). Note: you may need to add in a bit more liquid. 
    2. Fresh Fruit
      • Throw some blueberries, banana slices, or fresh figs for a little something extra. 
    3. Pepitas
      • Aka, pumpkin seeds! Pepitas are a great source of magnesium, iron, antioxidants and much more. You can read more about the benefits of pepitas here.
