Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal Tarts

November 26, 2012

Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

When I ordered pureed pumpkin a couple of weeks ago I had every intention of creating everything from pumpkin doughnuts to pumpkin pie. With free-time being very limited these past few weeks the cans are still in my “pantry” {a cupboard in my room} just the way I left them there when they first arrived. I still have 3 cans left and I honestly don’t know how I will incorporate pumpkin into my Christmas cookies….

If you too are left of a few cans of pumpkin and need the pantry space for chocolate, candy canes and Christmas sprinkles then make Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal for breakfast.

I made a few portions on Saturday morning and froze what was leftover for quick breakfasts on the go. Since I made them into individual “tarts” I ate them directly out of there with spoons of natural yoghurt. But the oatmeal would also taste wonderful in a bowl of fresh milk or Greek yoghurt topped with nut butter and all kinds of fruit.

To spruce things up a bit I added pomegranate seeds onto my oatmeal and to complete the Christmassy look I added mint leaves. To round the winter wonderland off I added desiccated coconut for the ultimate snow effect. No matter if you choose to transform this dish into a Christmas-inspired creation or let the fall flavors come through, it will add lots of flavor to your breakfast!

    This looks so good! This would be the perfect breakfast for a cold morning. Where did you find the pumpkin puree? I cant seem to find it anywhere.
