Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal for One is a delicious and hearty breakfast option, that can also be made in the microwave in less than 5 minutes! This vegan baked oatmeal recipe is also gluten free and clean eating.
1tablespooncoconut sugaror 1/2 tablespoon maple syrup
1/2cupold fashioned rolled oatscertified gluten free, if needed
In a large CorningWare meal mug whisk together pumpkin puree, coconut sugar, pumpkin pie spice, vanilla extract, sea salt and almond milk until smooth and combined.
With a small spatula stir in the old fashioned rolled oats until fully coated. Level the pumpkin oatmeal mixture and scrape down the sides of the meal mug with the small spatula to clean them up.
Place the mug with the pumpkin spice oatmeal in an oven that is preheated to 350° F and bake for 25-30 minutes or until the pumpkin oatmeal bake is set - even in the center.
Carefully remove the meal mug from the oven and let it cool until safe to touch (it will be very hot straight from the oven).
For a quick baked oatmeal, microwave the meal mug with the pumpkin pie oats (without lid) for 3-4 minutes. Since microwaves vary in strength, start checking for doneness at around 2.5 minutes and keep adding 30-second intervals until the microwave baked oatmeal is set.
Let cool for a few minutes before eating.
Add your favorite toppings from chopped pecans, maple syrup or chocolate chips on top of the baked pumpkin oatmeal, add a little more milk (if desired), and enjoy!
