baked pumpkin oatmeal


This month of the secret recipe club I was assigned the blog adventures in all things food.  Adventures in all things food is written by Owen's mom.  She is a stay at home mom who explores food from the garden, to the kitchen and then on to the table for her family.  Her blog name really captures her journey well.  You will find recipes ranging from homemade ricotta, raviolis to pitas and tortillas.  These are items I know would taste so much better homemade but, I am scared to take the leap.  I think I would need a few hours in the kitchen without a child at my feet saying "up mommy up"?  I was not brave enough to tackle one of her more complex recipes but, I am a lover of oatmeal and when I saw her baked oatmeal I knew I need to make it.  I make oatmeal in some form every day for breakfast but, I never bake it.  Boy was I missing out.  Baked oatmeal is the BOM.  I am obsessed.  I mean seriously obsessed.  A piece in the afternoon is the perfect snack and the kids enjoy it too.  I changed up the recipe from apple cinnamon to pumpkin banana and if I had seen her recipe for homemade pumpkin puree before I made this I would have tried my hand at that as well.  If you like oatmeal do not wait any longer to make a baked version.  It is so yummy!

Happy Monday and thank you adventures in all things food and Secret Recipe Club for a fun month.

Funny, because I opened a pumpkin can yesterday for the dog and was thinking of having the husband stir it into my oatmeal this morning.

Oooh, looks fantastic. I only eat oatmeal when I feel like I need to be healthy, not a huge fan. However, this looks delish!

I've heard such amazing things about baked oatmeal but I've never tried it either! Shame on me. I think pumpkin is gonna be my gateway drug!
