Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal w/ Crunchy Cinnamon Crumbles

Yield: 9 servings

Prep Time: 10 min

Cook Time: 60 min

If your family is a fan of oatmeal, they might enjoy this baked breakfast treat... perfect for a chilly, fall weekend morning. The oatmeal bakes up into slightly sweet, sliceable portions, then they're topped with a crunchy Cinnamon Toast Crunch crust and drizzled with maple syrup.

Ingredients:

2 3/4 cups old-fashioned oats
1/2 cup brown sugar, packed
1/2 cup raisins
1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice
1/2 teaspoon salt
1 cup unsweetened pumpkin puree
3 cups milk
2 large eggs, lightly beaten
1 Tablespoon vanilla extract
1 1/2 cups crumbled Cinnamon Toast Crunch cereal
syrup

Directions:

1. Preheat oven to 350 degrees F. Spray 8x8 baking dish with nonstick spray.

2. In a medium bowl, combine oats, sugar, raisins, spices, and salt. In a separate bowl, whisk together pumpkin puree, milk, eggs and vanilla extract. Add liquid ingredients to dry ingredients; whisk until combined. Pour into prepared dish.

3. Bake 30 minutes, then sprinkle the crumbled cereal on top, pressing gently into the baking oatmeal. Return to oven and bake an additional 20 to 30 minutes, until the oatmeal feels set and firm.

4. Serve warm with plenty of warmed syrup.

Tips:

*This recipe is gluten-free adaptable. Make sure that the following ingredients are gluten free versions of: oats, vanilla extract and syrup, and leave off the cereal topping.
*This recipe is best when eaten the day it’s made. You can save leftovers overnight in the refrigerator. The crumbles won’t stay crunchy overnight, but you can sprinkle some more on, heat it up and drizzle with warm syrup.

    This sounds phenomenal! Whole Foods & Cascadian Farms both sell a healthier cinnamon toast crunch knock-off, and I’m totally using one of those to make this :).

    I have this in the oven right now and the house smells amazing! The sugar on the crunchies is melting to make that beautiful browned topping. How will I ever wait for it to cool before diving in? Thanks you for this recipe. It makes a wonderful lazy Saturday morning treat!

    I made this on Halloween morning for my family of four and it was a hit. I got thumbs up and hugs from everyone. It made so much, we are still reheating it and eating it three days later.

    I made it last night and ate it right out of the oven (burned the roof of my mouth…not smart!) with whipping cream on top…yummy! More tonight for dessert with the hubby…yummy times 2!

    It wasn’t real sweet :) , enjoyed the raisins, I did make a flour, brown sugar, cinnamon & butter topping and I will make again…thanks for reposting!

    AMAZING! I cannot stop eating this! I used dried cranberries instead of raisins and made a crumb topping (like in apple crisp but less sugar) instead of the cereal. Thank you!

    chex has both cinnamon chex and apple cinnamon chex that are both gluten free that could be used as a substitute for the cinnamon toast crunch. i am trying this one!
