How to bake pumpkin oatmeal
Prepare the oven at 350 degrees Fahrenheit.
Mix all ingredients in a large bowl or, if you prefer, add them directly to a blender and blend until smooth.
Pour the oatmeal batter into a dish that can be baked. Choose a deep dish if you want the inside to be gooey. Choose a shallow and wide dish if you prefer oatmeal with a cakey texture and evenly cooked.
Bake in the middle rack for 20 minutes.
Top with Coconut Whipped Cream, almond butter, chocolate, maple syrup, blueberries, or strawberries.
You can make the oatmeal cakes the night before if you wish. After baking, let it cool down and then cover it loosely with a cloth. Refrigerate overnight. The following day, reheat in the oven or microwave for a quick breakfast.
