Pumpkin Spice Baked Oats
Pumpkin spice season is here!! And I have the perfect breakfast recipe for you filled with all your favourite fall flavours! What better way to start the morning than with a cozy sweet breakfast treat! I love everything oatmeal and usually eat hot oatmeal or overnight oats in the mornings for breakfast! I always love trying new flavours and ways to eat my oatmeal so today I tried something new and made some baked oats! These oats have a cake/muffin consistency, and who doesn't love an excuse to eat dessert for breakfast?? These oats are refined sugar, gluten and dairy free. You can also makes these vegan as well by swapping the egg for a flax egg.
I used sugar and dairy free chocolate chips for this recipe to make this recipe dairy free, however you can use whatever chocolate chips you prefer or leave out the chocolate chips if desired! I personally love the combination of pumpkin and chocolate! YUM!
This recipe makes approximately 3 servings, however you can double it and use a larger casserole dish if you are making it for the family or a group! It also works great to make extra and keep it in the fridge and heat it up the next day for leftovers! I will be working on a individual portion sized mug cake version of this recipe so stay tuned!
Even though I know fall means that winter is just around the corner (and I do not like snow), I still love fall especially all of the fall flavours! My favourite thing to do in the fall is to go to the farmer's market to get fresh apples and other fresh produce like squash and pumpkins! I find that fall flavours are all so comforting and with the weather getting cooler I love making warm, comfort food! Roasted veggies are one of my favourites in the fall.
I want to know some of your favourite fall recipes! I would love to hear some of your favourite recipes! Please feel free to make any suggestions for recipes that you would like me to make in the comments below!
