Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Bake

In the last two weeks have consisted off of breakfast bakes and energy balls. Life has just been so busy that I really have not had time to sit down for a meal other than breakfast. I've been keeping snacks in the car to eat while on the go (it also prevents hanger which prevents road rage #truestory). 

I know its technically spring, even though it still feels like winter, but mentally I'm still in fall. I've been on a pumpkin kick recently and one of my favorite pumpkin go-to's has been this pumpkin pie breakfast bake. It's modified from my chocolate breakfast bake and it tastes like dessert. Pumpkin pie for breakfast! It's super easy to make, takes less than 5 minutes to throw together, let the oven do it's thin, and you've got a healthy and delicious breakfast in under 30 minutes! 

Pumpkin Pie Breakfast Bake
  • 1/3 cup gluten free oats
  • 2 Tablespoons gluten free all purpose flour
  • heaping 1/4 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1/2-1 teaspoon cinnamon (more or less to taste)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ginger
  • 1/4 teaspoon nutmeg
  • pinch pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 Tablespoon honey or maple syrup
  • 1/4 cup unsweetened vanilla almond milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • tiny splash vanilla extract

Preheat oven to 350F degrees and spray a ramekin with nonstick cook spray or coconut oil.

In ramekin combine oats, flour, baking powder, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and pumpkin pie spice.

When the dry ingredients are combined add in honey/maple syrup, almond milk, pumpkin puree, and vanilla. Be sure to stir very well and scrap sides and bottom of ramekin so no clumps of dry ingredients remain.

Bake at 350F degrees for 20-25 minutes, or until the center is set.

Allow to cool for a few minutes, then add any toppings of choice. I added a small handful of fresh raspberries, 1/2 Tablespoon Purely Elizabeth pumpkin fig granola, and 1/2 Squarebar cut into chunks.
