Bake up this quick & cozy Gluten-Free Maple Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal recipe for a delicious autumn breakfast! Vegan, top-8 allergy-free, & baked right in a cast iron skillet with a crisp maple sugar top!
It’s beginning to look (smell) a lot like PUMPKIN season! You all know I’m a summer girl, but the only redeemable thing about Fall is the fact that we can go pumpkin crazy and it being 100% socially acceptable. With all the pumpkin comes the cozy hot breakfasts, warming spices, and piping hot cups of coffee (okay, and those big comfy sweaters top my “redeemable list” too!)
Grabbing some seasonal novelty goodness, I was able to brew up some pumpkin spice coffee right at home, bringing those cozy feelings of Fall, pumpkin, warming spices, and coffee all together in one delicious sip! I’m thinking this will be my way to pep myself up on a slow, chilly autumn morning for the rest of the season. But, a cozy cup of coffee in hand needs a little nourishment to go along with it, don’t you think?
Ah, yes, why not get out that mini cast iron skillet (the epitome of cozy comfort) and bake up a delicious gluten-free maple pumpkin baked oatmeal for breakfast! I’m pretty sure this combination of home-brewed pumpkin spice coffee and baked maple pumpkin oatmeal is guaranteed to get everyone (even me) a bit more excited for Fall 😉
While your coffee is brewing you can whip up this oatmeal so fast! Gluten-free quick oats, pumpkin, spices, maple syrup, pumpkin seed butter, all mixed together and spread in the skillet, then topped with some pure maple sugar to create a delicious crisp top! It’s vegan, allergy-free, and just the right amount to share with a loved one. I guess that makes this an even more perfectly cozy breakfast set up. Grab your coffee, your baked oatmeal, and someone who makes you feel warm and fuzzy inside!
Gluten-Free Maple Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
- Preheat the oven to 400°F.

If this doesn’t get you ready to celebrate Fall, I don’t know what will! Go stock up on some pumpkin spice coffee, turn on those ovens, and cook up one delicious autumn breakfast that will warm the soul inside and out! Your kitchen is going to be smelling like one upscale coffee house and bakery combined!
