I don’t know if we should be telling you this but…these cookies are inspired by dog biscuits.

It’s true! Allow us to explain.

We recently created a recipe for simple, nutritious peanut butter dog treats (recipe coming soon!), and we of course had to sample them. “Not bad,” we thought. And we wondered what would happen if we sweetened them a bit and turned them into cookies.

Spoiler alert: MAJOR WIN.

Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal is a great make-ahead breakfast option that has all the great flavors of pumpkin pie packed into whole grain oats.

The post Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal appeared first on Budget Bytes.

If you’re the type to love anything and everything pumpkin pie flavored, you’re going to LOVE this Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal. It’s got all the goodies of pumpkin pie baked right into your breakfast oats. …But with a lot less sugar so you won’t get a sugar crash at 10am. ;)

What is Baked Oatmeal?

Baked oatmeal is just oats that have been baked into a custard-like mixture. So think of bread pudding but made with oats instead of chunks of bread. They’re soft (not crunchy like the photos sometimes appear), warm, and very moist. Baked oats are more firm than traditionally cooked oats because they contain eggs and less liquid, but they still remain soft.

WhAT KIND OF OATS TO USE

I find that old-fashioned rolled oats work best for baked oatmeal recipes. Quick oats are a bit too small and delicate, and will create a pretty mushy end texture. Steel-cut oats require more moisture and a longer cooking time, so they will not work in this recipe. Old-fashioned rolled oats are the perfect mix between good texture and quick cooking!

How to Serve Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I absolutely love eating this pumpkin pie oatmeal cold every morning, but you can also reheat it in the microwave and eat it warm. Try drizzling a little maple syrup over top, sprinkling on a few chopped nuts, or even adding a dollop of whipped cream for an extra dessert-like finish.

How to Store Baked Oatmeal

This is a bake once, eat all week type of meal. After baking I divide the pumpkin pie baked oatmeal into single portions, then store them in the refrigerator for 4-5 days or freeze them for up to a few months. If you plan to freeze some of your baked oatmeal, chill it completely in the refrigerator first, then transfer it to the freezer.

As if fall wasn’t already busy enough, we are adding to the madness with a bathroom remodel and some other work around the house.

So my week is spent trying to calm a dog who is anxious about the construction work and trying to figure out if the shipping company really lost our new bathtub on top of all of the normal stuff.

I’m really looking forward to a peaceful weekend morning, ok?

I think this weekend is due for a batch of pumpkin pancakes, a cup of coffee with homemade vanilla coffee syrup, and maybe a trip to the apple orchard. 

Sounds like a pretty perfect weekend to me.

I am all about keeping things simple at this time of year.

Instead of cooking at home, we’re ordering pizza and wings for pre-trick-or-treat dinner and I’m whipping up these super simple semi-homemade Pumpkin Spice Cupcakes for dessert. I just plan on topping them with one of those little pumpkin candies you can find near the candy corn to make them a little more festive.

You all know I love my doctored cake mix recipes, and I couldn’t resist giving it a seasonal twist.

The result is these pumpkin spice cupcakes that are so irresistibly moist you can’t stop at just one!

If you love pumpkin bundt cake, you’ll definitely fall for the combo of spice cake mix and pumpkin. The lightly spiced cream cheese frosting makes the cupcakes so special.
