Baked oatmeal makes a warm, filling weekend breakfast, but can also be made ahead, making it great for weekly meal prep sessions. This vegan Autumn Baked Oatmeal is like fall in a bowl - warm spices, applesauce, nuts, cranberries, and pear come together in this tender baked oatmeal that’s almost more like a cake.
Oatmeal provides the perfect blank canvas on which to build flavors and textures. I love playing with different combinations of nuts, seeds, and fresh and dried fruits in baked oatmeal. Pecans and pepitas have been my go-to combination this fall, and I just can’t get enough pears this year, either.
Baked oatmeal is delicious hot from the oven, drizzled with cold milk or cream. It’s also great as leftovers, cold from the refrigerator or reheated again. Any way you like it, this Autumn Baked Oatmeal is a nutritious breakfast full of fiber, vitamins and minerals, and healthy fats!
