Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal with Walnuts (and Pomegranates)

This Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal is a great way to start your day. It’s loaded with healthy ingredients and baking a batch of it allows you to have a “go-to” breakfast all week long. If you have a sweet tooth, I would recommend increasing the amount of sweetener in the batter. However, I find that using a topping such as maple syrup or peanut butter adds enough “sweet”.

  • 1/4 cup of Chopped Walnuts (30 grams) *or the nut of your choice
  • Pomegranates to sprinkle on top *OPTIONAL

  1. Preheat oven to 375 degrees
