Rose shares a new fall recipe.

Pumpkin Apple Baked Oatmeal

Ingredients

  • 3/4 – 1 cup brown sugar or maple syrup
  • 3 cups quick or large flake oats
  • 1/3 cup coconut
  • 1/2 cup raisins or dried cranberries
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 2 eggs
  • 1/2 cup melted butter
  • 1/2 cup milk
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup peeled and chopped apples

Directions

Preheat oven to 350°F (177°C). Combine brown sugar (if using maple syrup add it to the liquid ingredients), oats, coconut, raisins, baking powder, salt and cinnamon in a large bowl. Whisk eggs, then whisk in melted butter, milk, and pumpkin puree. Stir everything together, adding the chopped apples last. The texture should be sort of like a wet oatmeal cookie. Grease a 9″x 13″ pan and pour the oatmeal into it, smoothing out the top. Bake in preheated oven for 30 – 35 minutes until the edges look brown. Remove from oven and run a large spoon through it to crumble the mix. Let cool before storing in an airtight container. I like to make it the day before, then pour milk over my serving and heat it all up together in the microwave the next day. It’s perfect for those crisp fall mornings!
