Baked oatmeal with ripe bananas, pumpkin and pecans is the perfect way to start your morning! It almost tastes like a banana-pumpkin nut bread.

Baked Oatmeal is my favorite breakfast!! When this pumpkin version first came out of the oven, I wasn’t so sure…but after my first bite I knew I had a winner! Other baked oatmeal recipes I love are Pear, Banana and Walnut and Blueberries and Banana.

Ever think about how perfect a banana is? My favorite way to eat them is when they are bright yellow, with no brown spots. I always throw a banana in my bag for a quick snack on the go, or after a work-out, but does that mean when they get all dark brown they are bad?

No way! I never throw bananas out… ever! Once they go start to get brown spots, I use them for smoothies, baked oatmeal, banana nut pancakes, banana nut cookies, muffins, banana bread and more. The riper they are, the sweeter they become and if I know I don’t plan on using them right away, I freeze them for banana ice cream (recipe coming tomorrow).

If you have ripe bananas laying around, give this baked oatmeal a try. It’s so good, it almost tastes like a banana-pumpkin nut bread. In fact, I told my toddler it was cake, and she ate it (cold).

Baked oatmeal with ripe bananas, pumpkin and pecans is the perfect way to start your morning! When this first came out of the oven, I wasn't so sure...but after my first bite I knew I had a winner!

Ingredients

  • 3 medium ripe bananas, (the riper the better) sliced into 1/2" pieces
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 tbsp honey
  • 3 tbsp brown sugar
  • 1 cup uncooked quick oats*
  • 1/4 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/2 tsp baking powder
  • 3/4 tsp cinnamon
  • 1 1/2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/4 tsp nutmeg
  • pinch of salt
  • 1 cup fat free milk, or any milk you desire
  • 1 egg
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract

Instructions

  • Preheat the oven to 375° F.  Lightly spray a 8 x 8" or 9 x 9" ceramic baking dish with cooking spray; set aside.
  • Arrange the banana slices in a single layer on the bottom of the ceramic dish.
  • Sprinkle 1/4 tsp of the cinnamon, honey and cover with foil. Bake 15 minutes, until the bananas get soft.
  • Meanwhile, in a medium bowl, combine the oats, half of nuts, baking powder, remaining cinnamon, pumpkin pie spice, nutmeg and salt; stir together.
  • In a separate bowl, whisk together the pumpkin, brown sugar, milk, egg, and vanilla extract.
  • Remove the bananas from the oven, then pour the oat mixture over the bananas.
  • Pour the pumpkin mixture over the oats, making sure to distribute the mixture as evenly as possible.  Sprinkle the remaining nuts over the the top.
  • Bake the oatmeal for about 30-35 minutes, or until the top is golden brown and the oatmeal has set. Serve warm from the oven.

  1. I think the pumpkin could have been a little thicker and sweeter but overall it was pretty good. I think I might try it again just with a little less milk

  2. I was given this from a co-worker.
    I got to the end of the recipe and it said oat mixture instead of pumpkin. Gave it till 35 minutes and still looked under baked. The picture present a much darker pumpkin bake and it was pulling away from the sides. Mine was quite bright and the edge were set but not pulling away nor was the middle set. We tried it but it was not baked properly. So I ended up putting it back in the oven at 400 and I am in the process of baking it longer. 

  3. Well I,m just in love with this Baked Pumpkin Banana Oatmeal recipe. I,ve been making it all winter long. It’s so good you could have it as a snack but I leave it for 4-5 mornings. Most times I’ll top it off with goji berries for the last minute in the oven along with the chopped pecans. I also like to add some blueberries breakfast!
    o top it off. It’s a keeper. In the warmer weather I make granola! I love

  4. I used Swerve brown sugar, unsweetened almond milk and Log Cabin sugar-free maple syrup instead of honey and it turned out perfectly! Love this recipe.
