pumpkin and maple baked oatmeal

Each year when autumn rolls around it puts me in a mood for warm comforting spices like ginger, nutmeg and cinnamon. It also puts me in a mood for pumpkin recipes. Pumpkin pie, pumpkin bars, pumpkin curry, pumpkin soup...pumpkin everything!

My sister-in-law let me borrow a cookbook called Deceptively Delicious. It's written by Jessica Seinfield (Jerry Seinfield's wife). She uses vegetable purees in her recipes to make sure that their kids are getting enough veggies in their diet. I think this is a brilliant idea! So instead of baking up a pumpkin pie, I decided to mix my pumpkin into some yummy baked oatmeal.

Another great thing about this baked oatmeal is the fact that it calls for maple syrup instead of sugar. It also has a bit of apple and cranberry. If autumn had a flavor, I think this would be it!

I love all those fall flavors. I just bookmarked this and plan to make next week! This is the perfect excuse for me to buy ramekins, which I've been wanting :)

Joanne said...

Haha I actually own this cookbook even though I don't have kids AND love veggies. But I figure, the more veggies I can stuff into food...the better! I'm craving pumpkin also. So need to try this.

Kim said...

I loved your last baked oatmeal, but this one takes the cake! Love all the flavors and will definitely be making this.

Did you buy your pumpkin whole? I've looked for both the pie pumpkins and the canned pumpkin and can't find either at the market yet.

I must admit that I'm failing at the button. I'm sure it's really easy but I a technology immunity. I was waiting for my husband to return from sea so he could help. Sad, I know! :)

I don't bake much with pumpkins, but this baked oatmeal sounds exactly how I imagine autumn flavour, too.
Lovely and delicious (maple syrup is exaggaretedly expensive here, though), and those red ramekins... be careful, they might disappear in the dark :)))

The oatmeal sounds delicious! I checked that book out at the library and had every intention of adding purees to my cooking. But alas, I'm too lazy :)

Hey Kim, these baked oatmeal ramekins are beautiful. And what a healthful snack. I bet this would be super delicious with some whipped cream on top (smile)!

Hmmmm. . . pumkins, cinnamon, that's my kind of thing. Since moving to Canada autumn has becoem one of my favourite seasons next to spring. The warm colours remind me of the comforts of home and the comforts of food.
