  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups unsweeteend almond milk , or any other milk of your choice
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree , homemade or canned (NOT pumpkin pie filling)
  • 1/2 cup maple syrup or other liquid sweetener of your choice, plus more depending on how sweet you like it - you can always serve with more maple syrup once baked
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pure vanilla extract
  • 1 teaspoon pumpkin pie spice , or sub with 1/2 tsp ground cinnamon, 1/4 tsp ground ginger + 1/8 tsp ground mace + 1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
  • 1 teaspoon ground flax seeds , optional
  • 1/2 teaspoon baking powder , optional - helps oatmeal rise a bit but can leave out if desired
  • 3 1/4 cups rolled oats , for grain-free: sub with roughly chopped or pulsed 2 cups coconut flakes, 1 cup sliced almonds and 1/4 cup almond flour
  • 3/4 cup chopped pecans plus 1/4 cup
  • 1/3 cup chocolate chunks or chocolate chips optional
  • Serving options: maple syrup, milk + more chopped nuts


  1. Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease the inside of a 2 quart (10 cup) casserole dish or baking pan. Set aside. (For oatmeal cups - spray a 12 cup muffin tin baking spray or use silicone muffin liners)
  2. In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until combined. Stir in pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, flax seeds, and baking powder. Gently fold in oats and then 3/4 cup of chopped nuts and chocolate.
  3. Spread batter evenly into pan (or muffin tins if using) and top with remaining nuts and chocolate.
  4. Bake in preheated oven for 35-40 minutes (25-30 for oatmeal cups), or until the oatmeal is set and the center is no longer jiggly or a toothpick comes out clean.
  5. Remove from the oven and serve with maple syrup and any other desired toppings.
