Vegan pumpkin baked oatmeal is a simple, make-ahead breakfast that is delicious when paired with a cup of coffee on a crisp fall day. All you need to create this recipe at home is a few simple pantry ingredients like oats, canned pumpkin, pumpkin pie spice, and pecans.


  • 2 tablespoons ground flax seed
  • 5 tablespoons water
  • 1 1/2 cups plant-based milk
  • 1/3 cup maple syrup
  • 2 tablespoons oil or vegan butter
  • 1 cup canned pumpkin
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 2 cups oats (not quick cooking)
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup chopped pecans
  • 1/4 cup pumpkin seeds


  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees Fahrenheit. Grease an 8″x8″ baking dish.
  2. Add ground flax seed and warm water to a large mixing bowl and stir. Set aside for 2-3 minutes until it forms a gel.
  3. Stir in the rest of the wet ingredients (milk, maple syrup, pumpkin, oil, and vanilla).
  4. Add dry ingredients to a small mixing bowl and stir to combine. Add to he large bowl with the wet ingredients and stir well.
  5. Transfer to prepared baking dish and top with pecans and pumpkin seeds. 
  6. Bake for 40-45 minutes or until edges are darkened and middle is set. Allow to cool for ~8-10 minutes before cutting.
  7. Serve with extra milk and a drizzle of maple syrup.


Store leftovers in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Leftovers can also be frozen as well. Just slice the baked oatmeal into individual servings and freeze in an airtight container with parchment paper between slices if stacked.
