Hi guys!

It seems like pumpkin mania is hitting the world earlier and earlier each year, so I decided to not add to the chaos and hold out on sharing new fall recipes this year until the season actually changed.  Your welcome :-).  Since fall officially started this past weekend though, (which I celebrated by going to the beach – haha!) I decided I couldn’t wait any longer and it was finally the perfect time to bust out my first pumpkin themed recipe of the year.  I love pumpkin flavors as much as anyone BUT I really need to wait until I’ve squeaked out every last bit of summer and the weather starts to cool a bit before it feels right to me.

I’ve been to the beach one last time AND our high temp is only 68 today in the mountains so it’s TIME and I dare say this Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe was worth the wait!

This Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe is too easy and tasty!  It’s basically like a baked oatmeal but in a muffin form making it easier to portion and totally portable.  I love that you can make these on Sunday and Monday and enjoy them all week long.  They are such a fabulous make ahead breakfast.

This Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal Cups recipe is not a sweet dessert but more of a healthy breakfast with just enough sweetness to satisfy that pumpkin spice craving.  It’s made with oats, egg, real pumpkin puree, and spices.

The sweetness comes from a small amount of maple syrup and of course the chocolate chips!  They are overly sweet or sugary, which is what I’m looking for in a healthy breakfast or snack.  If you want a more indulgent version you could add some coconut or brown sugar to the mix. 🙂 I promise not to judge.

The cinnamon and pumpkin pie spice smell amazing when they are baking too.  The whole house smells blissfully like fall.

The only problem is you’re probably going to want to eat the whole batch!  I enjoyed two at a time though with a side of eggs for extra protein.  It’s the perfect breakfast.

    These looks yummy! I am a bit pumpkin crazed right now like everyone and would love to make some of these for a quick breakfast. Literally going to make some today!

    They look so very good… I can’t believe how quickly the change of seasons happened here this year, it was literally overnight, it went from shorts and flip flops to long troosies and shoes from one day to the next. Such an incredibly exciting time to be cooking though, so much great new produce to play around with, I must make these!

    I’m going to visit my son at college this weekend and I’m thinking I should make these to bring to him!

    The pumpkin takeover does seem to happen earlier and earlier! These are a good way to start though!

    I’m so with you on wanting to wait until the last second to enjoy summer flavors before digging into anything pumpkin. I will definitely be trying these and it looks very simple to make which is even better.

    So far I haven’t eaten anything pumpkin but I may whip up pumpkin bread soon.

    These look delicious! I just made my pumpkin applesauce muffins and have been enjoying them with eggs, too. I can’t wait to hear about your last little vaca as just the 2 of you!
