Description

Inspired by my favorite fall casserole, this sweet potato baked oatmeal is loaded with sweet potato goodness and topped with a crispy pecan topping. It’s also vegan and gluten-free.


Ingredients

  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1 teaspoon baking powder
  • 1 1/2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
  • 1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon sea salt
  • 2 cups unsweetened almond milk
  • 1 cup mashed sweet potato
  • 1/4 cup pure maple syrup, plus more for serving
  • 1 Tablespoon ground flaxseed*
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

Topping

  • 1/4 cup brown sugar or coconut sugar
  • ¼ cup chopped pecans (or walnuts)
  • 2 Tablespoons rolled oats
  • 1 Tablespoon coconut oil, melted

Instructions

  1. Preheat oven to 375°F.
  2. Spray an 8-inch square baking dish with cooking spray.
  3. In a large bowl, mix together the oats, baking powder, pumpkin pie spice, cinnamon and salt. Stir to combine.
  4. Add in the milk, sweet potato, maple syrup, flaxseed, coconut oil and vanilla to the bowl. Stir well to combine.
  5. Carefully pour oatmeal mixture into the prepared baking dish.
  6. Mix together topping ingredients in a small bowl and sprinkle over oatmeal mixture. 
  7. Bake for 30 to 35 minutes, until the top is golden and center is set. Remove from the oven and let cool for a few minutes. Portion and serve. 
  8. Store cooled leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge. This baked oatmeal will keep well in the refrigerator for 4 to 5 days or in the freezer for 1 to 2 months.

Notes

  • You can use 1 large egg instead of the ground flaxseed if you’re not worried about the oatmeal being vegan or egg free.
