Pumpkin baked oatmeal
If you like oatmeal, then you have probably done overnight oats, quick oats, boiled oats, baked oats, but have you tried pumpkin baked oats?
This is not really a recipe, since all you need is a half a small pumpkin that you will first bake and then fill with oats and bake again. What goes in the pumpkin is up to you.
Here is my suggestion for 4 servings:
2 cups oats
1/2 cup dried coconut flakes
2 tbsp pumpkin spice (or cinnamon, cloves and nutmeg, mixed)
1 cup milk
Mix all ingredients and place in the pumpkin. Bake for 20 minutes and let cool off before you cut and serve. I like to make this dish in the evening and have it cold in the morning. The milk adds nice moisture to the oats and the coconut flakes and walnuts provide a wonderful source of fat.
p.s. for all the specific temperature geeks, I bake everything above in convection oven at 390'F
