Hello lovelies! I’m just popping into blog world today with a yummilicious Vegan Single Serve Pumpkin Oatmeal Bake recipe that I might have made back in, um, October, and am posting today! in DECEMBER. still not quite sure how that happened. but really, the lake is already mostly frozen over and I’ve already had two snow days!
Winter is definitely here to stay.
This breakfast is perfect for after a long run or just to warm you up on a chilly morning! I refrigerated one of the bakes and reheated it in the microwave the next morning and it was just as good. It’s based off of my pumpkin oatmeal bake with the changes being a flax egg in place of a real one and coconut sugar for brown sugar!
In some real life talk, today is my first basketball game!! From now until the end of February I’ll have two games a week which means not very much time for cooking/posting/blog reading (I still read, just lack on commenting). It’s a bummer, but I have plenty of time for those things in the future.. I only have high school to play basketball!
Back to the recipe… I recommend topping it with maple syrup and/or nut butter 😀 Pictured below is crunchy Nuttzo <– OBSESSED and rationing my jar.
Some funs news.. this is my 300th post! It’s not, however, my 300th recipe… I would rather not read many of those old posts 🙂
Enjoy! Hopefully you’re not sick of pumpkin yet!
- 1 cup oats
- 1/8 cup coconut sugar (can sub brown sugar)
- 1 tsp cinnamon
- 1 tsp chia seeds
- 1/2 tsp baking powder
- 1/4 tsp salt
- 1/4 cup walnut or pecans
- 1/8 cup cacao nibs
- 1 banana
- 1/4 cup pumpkin puree
- 1 tsp vanilla
- 1/2 cup almond milk
- Preheat oven to 350F and spray two ramekins. In a little bowl make the flax egg by combining 1 tbsp flax meal with 3 tbsp water and letting it sit until thickened.
- In a bowl, mix the oats, sugar, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, chia seeds, nuts, and cacao nibs. In a separate bowl, mix the mashed banana, 1/4 cup pumpkin puree (not pumpkin pie mix), 1 tsp vanilla, and 1/2 cup almond milk.
- Evenly distribute the oat mixture into the two dishes. Pour the liquid mixture over them and mix to make all of the oats saturated. Top with a few more cacao nibs, walnuts or pecans, or a few banana slices and bake until the liquid is set, from 35-45 minutes.
