Pumpkin Apple Oat Bake

Can’t choose between pumpkin and apple as your favorite fall flavor? With this pumpkin apple baked oatmeal you don’t have to! This oat bake works best in muffin tins or small ramekins. The cook time may vary depending on the size of the baking container you choose. 

This oatmeal is supposed to be gooey, even after it’s fully cooked. It’s the consistency of a pumpkin-y porridge. Don’t expect them to set like baked goods. The result is warm, creamy, and subtly sweet. It will also make your kitchen smell heavenly.

Servings 4



  • 1 cup oats, 4 oz

Fruit & Veggies

  • 1 apple, small dice
  • 1/2 cup pumpkin puree, 4 oz



  • 1/2 tsp vanilla
  • 1 Tbsp pumpkin pie spice, or make your own, see notes
  • 2 Tbsp maple syrup, optional
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt

To Garnish

  • pecans, or pumpkin seeds to garnish
  • yogurt of choice, to garnish (optional)

Useful Equipment


  • Preheat the oven to 350°F.
  • In a bowl, stir together the pumpkin, milk, apples, flax seed, and vanilla. Let this sit for a few minutes to hydrate and activate the binding properties of the flax seeds.
  • Stir in the oats and the rest of the seasonings. Lightly grease muffin tins or baking dish.
  • Bake for 30-40 minutes, until firm on the top. This dish is not intended to be the texture of muffins or bread, but rather firm on the top and gooey on the inside like a bread pudding.
  • Allow to cool and rest for 10 min before serving.


DIY Pumpkin Pie Spice:
  • 1-1/2 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/4 tsp ginger
  • 1/4 tsp allspice
  • 1/8 tsp ground cloves

  1. These looks delicious! We’re on a pumpkin/apple kick too so this is a perfect recipe for us!

    Do you use rolled oats not quick cook? And does this freeze well?

  3. I haven’t tried it with rolled oats, and I haven’t tried freezing it. If you try, let us know how it goes! I‘m sure it would work fine, it would just change the texture a bit. This recipe is supposed to be gooey so it isn’t important for the oats to be absorbent like in my flourless baked goods. Hope that helps

    Hi Katie – I love your recipes! I may not be doing the math quite right, but if this recipe is four servings, I don’t think it adds up to a full protein or full fruit serving if folliowing the BLE program, correct?

    • Hi! That’s correct, you’ll need to complete the protein serving with nuts or yogurt as a topping. To complete the fruit serving, you can top with some diced apples or eat some extra fruit on the side.

  11. These are wonderful! Has anyone tried it with unsweetened applesauce instead of pumpkin? I don’t always have pumpkin on hand, but applesauce (fresh when possible) is a staple.
