If you’re into sweet potato pie, you may want to try this baked sweet potato pie oatmeal out. Because it’s a totally legit way to eat pie for breakfast. It’s as easy as my other baked oatmeal recipes, though you do need to use cooked sweet potato. But baking a sweet potato is simple, so no worries. Just enjoy this (pie) for breakfast. Mmm!
All you need to do is mix some basic ingredients together, bake, and voila! You have a warm, delicious breakfast on your hands. It’s perfect for cooler mornings, but I’m still making baked oatmeals on occasion here in Phoenix right now. And it’s over 100F every day, so… No excuses if you want some scrumptious sweet potato pie for breakfast. 😉
And with how customizable it is, you can make it to your liking. Add more spice if you want some. Top it with walnuts or no nuts at all. Maybe spread a cream cheese frosting on top. The choice is yours, friend. Do it however you’d like.
Baked oatmeal is clearly one of my favorite things everrr, so try some of the other flavors we have on the blog! For pie flavors, try Apple Pie and Blueberry Pie. How about Blueberry French Toast, Fudgy Brownie, Carrot Cake, or Cookie Dough? Or what about PB&J With Zucchini or Chocolate/Peanut Butter Pecan? They’re all sooooo good, so give ’em a shot!

A delicious, perfectly spiced baked sweet potato pie oatmeal that tastes like dessert but fits the breakfast bill. Enjoy any time of day!
- 1/2 cup sweet potato (previously baked and cooled)
- 1-2 tbsp peanut butter*
- 2-3 tsp maple syrup (to taste)
- 1/4 cup water
- 1/4 heaping tsp cinnamon
- 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
- (optional) 1/8 tsp turmeric
- 1/4 tsp molasses
- 1/4 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup oats
- 5-6 Pecan halves for topping
Preheat oven to 350 degrees F (176 C) and ready your ramekin (either with parchment paper or nonstick spray - I choose to bake this oatmeal without either).
In a mixing bowl, mash sweet potato. Then add peanut butter, maple syrup, and water. Stir to combine.
Add cinnamon, flax/chia, (optional) turmeric, molasses, and vanilla and stir well. Then add oats and stir once more.
Place mixture in ramekin, top with pecans, and bake for 20-25 minutes, more if you want it more solid. Then let cool slightly and enjoy!
*You can use powdered or regular. Up to you!
