All the flavors of fall’s most famous latte come together in this amazing breakfast bake. ‘Tis the season, after all.
So, tell me the truth. Are you onboard this all-pumpkin everything train that the rest of the world is riding?
I am! I am quite possibly the conductor of this train, to be honest. Don’t hate me.
I mean, pumpkin pie is great and I have to bake at least a few of them every fall, but I can’t stop there. I want to pumpkin-ify every last recipe I’ve ever seen. It might be a problem.
Of course, like any true pumpkin lover, pumpkin spice lattes are a go-to for me and no one can turn down a bowl of hot oatmeal on a chilly morning, so hey. Let’s go ahead and marry those two, shall we? You’re going to love this recipe!
Real quick, before I give you the lowdown on how to make this, I want you to envision something. A dollop of whipped cream. A dusting of pumpkin pie spice. Right on top of your oatmeal. Doesn’t that sound heavenly?
You’ll need oats, pumpkin, milk, melted butter, vanilla, brown sugar, an egg and a few spices. Those spices include cinnamon, nutmeg, ginger and espresso powder. (This is a latte oatmeal, after all. Gotta bring the espresso powder to the game.)
Add the oats, brown sugar and spices to a medium mixing bowl and give them a quick stir. You know this going to be good already, don’t you?
In a small mixing bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, milk, melted butter, vanilla and egg.
Dump the wet ingredients into the dry and give it a give stir. No need to beat it to death, just get everything combined. Pour that right into a greased 8x8-inch baking dish.
This will bake up in just about 30 minutes.
If you’re not dying to dig into this hearty breakfast, then we can’t be friends anymore. #sorrynotsorry
