We’re entering the season of cozy. Who’s excited? I know I am! I love all things pumpkin and pumpkin spice and have been looking forward to fall all year long and have been coming up with many seasonal oatmeal recipes for you! After kicking off the cozy season with this cinnamon roll baked oatmeal let’s move on to this simple pumpkin pie baked oatmeal for one.

This healthy pumpkin baked oatmeal is great for a filling and warming breakfast. Perfectly spiced with pumpkin spice and topped with a creamy dreamy Greek yogurt topping – divine!

Sprinkle it with some chopped nuts or pepitas and you have a gorgeous fall-inspired breakfast that comes together easily and I guarantee that the whole family will love it!

If you love pumpkin spice, then you are going to be all over this oatmeal recipe. It is packed with the flavors of the season and will make your kitchen smell amazing all day long.

As with all of my high protein baked oats recipes, I add some protein powder. I went with vanilla-flavored protein but plain would also work. If you’re making baked protein oats with unflavored protein powder I would maybe add some more vanilla extract. 


  • glutenfree oats 
  • baking powder gives the baked oatmeal that perfect rise
  • pumpkin spice – storebought or homemade 
  • vanilla protein powder –  
  • pumpkin puree – I make my baked oatmeal with pumpkin puree from the grocery store but you can make your own. When using store-bought make sure the ingredient list says just pumpkin, no additives, no sugar, no pumpkin pie filling.
  • almond milk or any other plant-based milk
  • egg is used as a binding agent 
  • maple syrup for some nutty sweetness
  • vanilla – add a bit more if using plain protein powder

This recipe is for single-serve baked oats but you could probably double the recipe and bake it in a loaf pan or triple it and make it in a square brownie pan and turn this into pumpkin oatmeal bars. 

This oatmeal bake is healthy as is but if you want to cut down on the calories, skip the Greek Yogurt Cream Cheese Frosting.

You can make your baked oatmeal ahead of time! 

  1. Follow the recipe. Once the oatmeal is prepped, cover the baking dish and place it in the fridge. You can make this pumpkin-baked oatmeal 1-2 days in advance.
  2. When you want to eat it, cover the dish with foil and pop it in a 350°F oven for about 20 minutes. For oatmeal for one you could also use a toaster oven to 350°F and bake for 5-10 minutes or even reheat the dish in the microwave for 1-minute max.
