Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal with Streusel Topping
Mornings can be rushed, so I’m all for make-ahead recipes I can cook once and then eat for days. This pumpkin baked oatmeal fits the bill. You can eat it warm right out of the oven, or stick it in the fridge and eat it cold in the morning. The pumpkin puree helps keep the oatmeal moist; you can substitute applesauce if you have that on hand instead.
With just two steps, this recipe couldn’t be easier. Most of the ingredients are standard pantry staples, which means you can make up a batch whenever a craving strikes. The streusel topping isn’t mandatory, but I highly recommend it to add a sweet crunch alongside the creamy oats. If you want to take it a step further, peanut or almond butter and fresh fruit make a perfect finishing touch.
