Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Ingredients

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

  • 3 cups old-fashioned oats
  • 1/2 cup 1/2 cup brown sugar plus 1/4 cup for topping
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1 cup chopped pecans plus 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup Hiland Dairy Milk
  • 1/2 cup Hiland Dairy plain yogurt

Whipped Cream

  • 1 cup Hiland Dairy heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon sugar

Instructions

  • In a medium-size bowl, whisk together the eggs, Hiland Dairy milk and Hiland Dairy yogurt. Add the pumpkin puree and whisk again until smooth.
  • Now add the oats, 1/2 cup brown sugar, flour, 1 cup pecan pieces, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice and stir together until everything is incorporated. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just incorporated.
  • Pour the oats mixture into a 9×13 baking dish sprayed with nonstick spray. Spread out evenly. Cover the baking dish and refrigerate overnight or at least a few hours until ready to bake.
  • Once ready to bake, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Take the baking dish out of the fridge and then sprinkle the top of the oatmeal the remaining 1/4 cup brown sugar and 1/4 cup pecan pieces.
  • Bake uncovered for 25 minutes then turn the oven to low broil and cook another 5 minutes. This caramelizes the brown sugar a bit. Just watch it carefully while under the broiler as not to burn.
  • Remove from the oven and let cool for about 5 minutes to set. In the meantime, you can make some whipped cream.
  • Whipped Cream – In a medium bowl, add the Hiland Dairy heavy cream and sugar. With a handheld mixer or stand mixer, whip on medium speed until you reach soft peaks.
  • Cut the oatmeal like a cake into pieces, serve with whipped cream! Enjoy!
  • Cover baking dish and place in the fridge to enjoy the next day. To reheat, either place in the microwave for 30-second increments until warm or reheat in the oven at 325 degrees for about 15 minutes until warm.
