Recipe ReDux- Pumpkin

October 21, 2011

Ahh..pumpkin.  We all know how much I love it.  When I read this month’s Recipe ReDux theme, I knew it was gonna be a good one.


Pumpkin, oh glorious pumpkin!


Not only was I excited to write up my post, but you have to check out these amazing recipes by other ReDuxers.  I can’t wait to get out the pumpkin and start cooking!


My recipe is inspired from Healthy Tipping Point’s pumpkin spiced latte baked oatmeal.  I made a few changes along the way and am happy with the way it turned out.



Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal (inspired from Healthy Tipping Point)


  • 1/2 cup oatmeal
  • 1/4 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1/4 cup fat-free milk
  • 1/2 tablespoon pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 tablespoon instant coffee
  • 1/2 sliced banana
  • 1 teaspoon sugar


  • Preheat oven to 375.
  • Mix all ingredients.
  • Pour batter into mini casserole dish.
  • Top with sliced banana.
  • Bake for 20 minutes.
  • Enjoy!



I love this take on classic oatmeal.  Baking the oatmeal adds a nice touch and, bonus, your kitchen will smell of pumpkin and spices.


I realized something while putting this recipe together.  During the week, many of us don’t take time in the morning to make a “fancy” breakfast, if you will.  We often will save more of those types of meals for weekends. 


Bake the oatmeal in the oven while getting ready.  Hardly any extra time added in your morning and I assure you it’ll still feel like you made something extra special. just. for. you.  #mefirst

My mouth is literally watering right now.

This weekend is Parents’ Weekend at my college, which means that my parents are coming to visit…and that means getting them to take me grocery shopping!! I might just have to pick up some of these ingredients while I’m at Wegmans :)


Nicole, RD October 21, 2011 at 6:57 pm

The redux recipes never cease to amaze me! So creative! The oats look wonderful…love the latte twist with the instant coffee. I always have some of that stuff on hand and am never quite sure what to do with it ;)

Have fun with all the wedding stuff this weekend! Your friends need to space out their weddings some!!!! ;)

I like pumpkin nice and chilled, mixed with Greek yogurt, sprinkled with cloves and cinnamon. A nutritious and delicious protein packed snack!

Your oatmeal looks heavenly!!!

I love pumpkin oatmeal!! I made it for the first time last month and have had it about 100 times since! I’m a big pumpkin person, so you get a gold star for posting links to all those pumpking recipes :)

This pumpkin redux looks awesome! Your photos are so beautiful, too. I bet it would be awesome with coconut palm sugar to replace the white sugar …

Love your site! It is gorgeous :)
