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
