What are your feelings about leftovers? Me? I’m a big fan. I’m happy to eat the same thing three days in a row if it means I get a break from cooking. I love to cook – you wouldn’t be reading this if I didn’t – but it’s not like cooking is the only thing I have to do, you know? When dinner time is near and my kids are hungry and asking for attention I’d rather focus my energy on them. Especially on weeknights when we get home from work and school and head straight into homework, dinner, bath, books, and bed.

Usually when I think of leftovers I think of lunch or dinner. But I’ve realized lately how convenient it is to have breakfast leftovers ready to go! That’s where this pumpkin baked oatmeal comes in. I like to make this oatmeal on the weekend or for an easy weeknight dinner, and then we have a healthy breakfast ready and waiting for the next couple of days.  The recipe makes a lot, which is perfect for my family and for having a make-ahead breakfast on hand.

I first made baked oatmeal when I made this Cinnamon Maple Baked Oatmeal, which is still one of our very favorite breakfast recipes. But this time of year? I’m cooking and baking with pumpkin every chance I get. Pumpkin makes great desserts, but I really love to get my pumpkin fix at breakfast time.

This Pumpkin Pecan Baked Oatmeal is so easy to make! You can even prepare this when you’re half asleep – trust me, I’ve done it. 🙂 You mix everything up in one big bowl, pour it into a baking dish, and then pop it in your oven. You could even stir everything together in the baking dish if you want and avoid washing a second bowl all together.

Made with pure maple syrup, this Pumpkin Pecan Baked Oatmeal is refined sugar free. The toasted pecans on top add a delicious crunch.
