Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

Smalls is obsessed, and I do mean OBSESSED with oatmeal lately.

In fact, in the past month, the first words out of his mouth in the mornings haven’t been “good morning, mom” but “did you start my oatmeal?”

Yeah, I know. We’re working on that.

And usually, I’ve absolutely started his oatmeal. Except for this past weekend when I decided to get all fancy and try my hand at a baked oatmeal.

Why baked oatmeal?

I wanted a different texture, and I thought the leftovers could be made for an easy-to-reheat-type breakfast for the coming week.

Because that makes total sense.

Turns out he wasn’t a big fan of me messing with his oatmeal, and for a bit he totally refused to even taste the “wrong kind of oatmeal.”

His words, not mine, Y’all.

I get it. He doesn’t like change. He doesn’t even like oatmeal from a packet. Even if it’s all sugared up and not organic.

He wants his old-fashioned rolled oats or nothing apparently.

Fast forward to lunch on Sunday when everyone was enjoying seconds of my baked pumpkin pie oatmeal.

…and loved it.

And now he wants me to make it every day.

I assured him we could totally make a version of this, but explained that baked oatmeal was really more of a weekend thing.

But it may have to be an early morning-pre-workout thing, too, because y’all…this is good. Give this pumpkin pie baked oatmeal a try, and see how you like it.
