  • 3 cups old-fashion oats
  • 3/4 cup brown sugar divided*
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour**
  • 1 1/4 cup pecan pieces divided
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 tsp pumpkin pie spice
  • 1 cup pumpkin puree
  • 2 eggs
  • 1 cup milk of your choice
  • 1/3 cup plain yogurt


  • In a medium bowl, whisked together the eggs, milk and yogurt. Add in pumpkin puree and whisk until all ingredients are incorporated.
  • Add in a large bowl, stir together the oats, 1/2 cup sugar, flour, 1 cup pecan pieces, baking powder, salt and pumpkin pie spice until all ingredients are incorporated. Stir the wet ingredients into the dry ingredients until just incorporated. **If you don't want to wash 2 bowls, you can also just add and stir the dry ingredients together in the medium bowl with the egg mixture**
  • Pour the oats into a 9x13 inch baking dish, cover and place in refrigerator for at least 3 hours but ideally overnight.
  • Preheat oven to 350 degree F.5. Take baking dish out of the fridge, uncover and sprinkle with remaining pecan pieces and brown sugar.
  • Place the baking dish in oven and bake for 25 minutes. Turn oven to boil, leave dish where it is at in the oven, and boil for 5 minutes to get sugar topping nice and gooey.
  • Let cool for 5 minutes and cut into cake like slices.
  • I served this in small slices for Parker (1 year) and with a little cream drizzled on it for Ellie (3 years).


Yield - 12 large pieces
Storage - 5 days in fridge, 1 month in freezer
*using a 1/2 cup brown sugar in oatmeal doesn't make this dish sweet. If you prefer your oats on the sweeter side I suggest you adjust this amount to 1 cup.
** If you want this oatmeal to be more of a traditional oatmeal and not cake like, I would omit the flour altogether.
