What is baked oatmeal?
Baked oatmeal is a recipe that went crazy on TikTok earlier this year.
It turns your traditional stovetop oatmeal into a convenient baked (or microwaved) dish that that has all the nutritional value of fruit and oatmeal but in a tasty cake-like form.
In the case of this pumpkin spice baked oatmeal, it has a consistency that’s like a cross between cake and pumpkin pie.
Once you have the basic ratio of oats to fruit to liquid down, it’s so easy to adapt it to all kind of crazy flavors!
Ingredients needed for pumpkin spice baked oatmeal
To make this baked oatmeal recipe, you’ll need:
- Old Fashioned Oats or Rolled Oats. For this recipe, stay away from steel cut oats, which are too gritty, and instant oats, which will be gummy.
- Canned Pumpkin Puree. Yes, these pumpkin spice latte oats use ral pumpkin!
- Cold Brew Coffee. You can’t have a latte without coffee! Using cold brew or iced coffee gives this breakfast all the flavor you’d expect from your favorite coffeeshop drink. If you don’t like coffee, you can use unsweetened almond milk instead.
- Pumpkin Pie Spice. This blend of warm spices is such a classic fall flavor! I mix some into the batter and then dust more on top. You can buy it premixed or raid your spice rack and make your own DIY pumpkin pie spice.
- Maple Syrup For the perfect touch of natural sweetness.
- Egg. Egg helps the mixture bind together as well as helping it rise.
- Baking Powder.
How to make tiktok baked oatmeal
Making this baked oatmeal recipe is as easy as blending all of the ingredients together (I used my Nutri bullet), pouring it into a ramekin, and baking it until it’s cooked through.
If you’re using the microwave, it will take 2-3 minutes to “bake.”
You can also make these oats in the oven by baking at 350 degrees for 25 minutes. Since this cooking method takes longer, I recommend making a bigger batch to enjoy throughout the week.
You’ll know it’s done when the sides of the oatmeal pulls away from the dish and the top looks dry.
How to serve this baked oatmeal
This baked oatmeal is super delicious as is but for a little extra decadence, sprinkle some pumpkin spice or cinnamon sugar on top together with a dollop of freshly whipped cream!
If that’s too rich for your taste, you can also top it off with a little bit of vanilla yogurt.
How long does baked oatmeal last?
Allow the oatmeal to cool, then cover the ramekin tightly with plastic wrap. It will keep well in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days.
You can also freeze your baked oatmeal for up to 3 months.
To reheat from frozen, first thaw overnight in the refrigerator and then warm through in the oven at 350℉ for 10-15 minutes, in the microwave for 15-20 seconds or in a toaster oven.
This baked oatmeal can also be enjoyed chilled but I tend to love mine warmed through as a comforting breakfast, especially during the cooler months of the year!
Is this pumpkin spice latte baked oatmeal gluten-free?
Yes, it is! With that said, it’s important to take note of a few things:
- Oats are naturally gluten-free although they do often get processed in facilities that also prepare and package wheat-based products. I suggest that you purchase a brand that’s certified as being gluten-free such as Bakery on Main, which is also grown in dedicated glutenpfree fields and process on dedicated equiptment.
- . If you have a severe intolerance or have celiac, talk to your doctor about if oats are right for you.
- Some canned pumpkin brands can include small trace elements of starch. If you want peace of mind, Libby’s Canned Pumpkin is 100% pumpkin without hidden starch.
