Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal

Pumpkin Pie Baked Oatmeal

We love my blueberry baked oatmeal so much that I thought I'd give it a fun fall twist.  Most recipes on the internet for baked oatmeal call for oil or butter, but my versions come out so great without it that I just don't see a need for the added fat, although I'm sure it adds some great flavor and moisture.  You could also add chopped nuts, raisins, dried cranberries, or chopped apple to this dish.

-3 cups oats (whole or quick, NOT instant)
-3/4 c sugar
-1 1/2 cups milk
-2 eggs
-1 Tbsp baking powder
-1 tsp salt
-2 tsp vanilla
-2 tsp cinnamon
-1/2 tsp ginger
-1/4 tsp nutmeg
-1/4 tsp cloves
-1 c canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
-2 Tbsp brown sugar

In a medium bowl, whisk together sugar, milk, vanilla, eggs, and pumpkin.  Stir in oats, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, ginger, nutmeg, and cloves.  Spread into a greased 13x9 dish.  Bake at 350 for 30 minutes.  Let cool 5 minutes before serving.
