It’s super simple, you guys. I wouldn’t have it any other way. Simply mashed a banana in a bowl, add water, pumpkin, maple syrup, and spices, and then soak the bread. After you’ve added your oats and nuts, you pop it into the oven and wait (im)patiently for it to bake. Ta-da! Easy peasy fall-breakfast squeezy.

Try this pumpkin french toast oatmeal topped with pecans for a scrumptious fall breakfast that's easy to make! Totally vegan and can be GF!

Course: Breakfast
Cuisine: Gluten-Free, Vegan
Keyword: Baked Oatmeal, Pumpkin
Servings: 1
What you'll need:
  • 1 ripe banana, mashed
  • 3 tbsp water/nondairy milk
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  • 1/8 tsp cinnamon
  • 1/8 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/8 tsp turmeric
  • 1 dash black pepper
  • 1 tbsp ground flax/chia
  • 1 slice bread (use GF if GF / I like whole-wheat hot dog or hamburger buns for their thickness)
  • 1/4 cup oats
  • 1-2 tbsp pecan pieces
What you'll do:
  1. Preheat oven at 375 degrees F (190 C) and ready your ramekin (either with parchment paper or nonstick spray - I choose to bake this oatmeal without either).

  2. In a medium bowl, mix mashed banana, water/milk, pumpkin maple syrup, cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, turmeric, black pepper, and flax well.

  3. Add chunks of bread and mix them so they soak the mixture up. Add oats and mix to combine. Then add pecan pieces and mix (or leave some to sprinkle on top).

  4. Pour mixture into your ramekin and bake for 20-24 minutes. Let cool slightly before enjoying!

Baked Apple Cider Oatmeal

Let’s pretend it’s fall, okay? This baked apple cider oatmeal tastes like fall, and we could all probably use a touch of autumn in the dead of summer. It’s intensely hot out there, but if it’s cool enough in the morning, you won’t regret making this dish for breakfast. You can also save this recipe for the fall though. Or…just do both. That’s what I’m gonna do! So let’s do this!

Baked Banana Coconut Zucchini Bread Oatmeal

This recipe was kind of an oops recipe. I had no idea what new flavor to try, but I definitely wanted banana and zucchini in there (because zucchini is my favorite thing to put in my baked oats!). So I thought I’d add some coconut (because why not?) and DUDE. It came out amazing!! It tastes like banana bread AND zucchini bread, and that hint of coconut is the perfect way to bring it all together. Sure, it’s getting hot this summer, but it’s always a good time for something THIS good.

Gluten-Free Chocolate Donuts

We’ve made baked chocolate donuts on the blog before. They’ve even been gluten-free before. But this version utilizes the base of my favorite banana bread muffins without making these taste like banana bread donuts. They taste like chocolaty goodness instead, so they’re a delicious dessert. Yet they’re made with healthy, simple ingredients, so they’re perfect as breakfast or a snack. So take your pick on when you eat them. They’re easily anything you want them to be!
