Baked Pumpkin Chocolate Chip Oatmeal

Perfect Pairing:  Your morning coffee
IMG_8310-1

If you have never tried baked oatmeal, you should give it a shot.  It is like a mix between an oatmeal bar and your typical breakfast oatmeal. It can be modified a hundred different ways to incorporate your favorite flavors.  This version is one I whipped up with things I had on hand.  It has a decidedly fall feel to it but would be good all year long.  It is great leftover, just warm it up a bit and you have breakfast.  I like to make it during the weekend and enjoy it for breakfast the rest of the week.  It is a nice change from my usual instant oatmeal at work!
The Perfect Pairing for this baked pumpkin chocolate chip oatmeal is a cup of your morning coffee.  I just started drinking coffee a few years ago and now it is something I look forward to in the mornings.    The slightly sweet flavor of the baked oatmeal is perfect with your morning cup of joe.

  2. This is wonderful! Can't wait to try it out this weekend. I have a feeling it's going to become a fall staple and I'm going to add it to the brunch table on Thanksgiving weekend.
