Pumpkin Spice Baked Oatmeal

  • The perfect Fall breakfast for a crowd! This pumpkin spice baked oatmeal has just the right amount of pumpkin, oats. and warm spices to give your breakfast that Fall flair!

    Getting a puppy is like having a baby. OBVIOUSLY I know it’s nothing like that in comparison but I’m saying in regards to buying all this stuff for your newest arrival. We literally just found out that we get to bring our puppy home in three weeks. We thought that we were going to have to wait until January or February for one so we haven’t even been thinking about anything puppy related. Well, turns out our breeder had a last-minute snafu with one of her customers and since we were next on the list, she asked if we wanted to take our pup in a few weeks. Um, yes!

    We went to the pet store last night and I felt like I was buying stuff for a new baby. Everything in sight I wanted to get even if it was totally unnecessary. By the way, the laser engraving of the name tag is like the coolest thing I’ve ever seen, haha…we were so intrigued. Also, I had to call the vet’s office yesterday and I felt like I was talking about my brand new baby from all the questions they were asking me: “how many weeks old is it?” “what’s its name?” Haha, too funny! We are so so excited!! Gimme your best puppy training tips and the best things to buy! OH, do you dremel or clip your dog’s nails? I think we’re going the dremel route but I’m terrified it’s going to freak the dog out because that thing is so dang loud!

    So every year, it’s the same deal for me. If it’s not October, you won’t see a new pumpkin recipe because there are FAR too many establishments out there that jump the gun on the pumpkin and by October (the real pumpkin month) we’re already gagging and wanting peppermint or something.

    WELL. Since today is the first day of October, you get blessed with a pumpkin recipe. One that makes a whole ton of breakfast goodness that will last you all week. So you know, you can get your Fall on all week. Grab those plaid scarfs, button up shirts, UGGS, leggings, and North Face jackets and please, skip that Starbucks PSL crap for this pumpkin spice baked oatmeal ;)

    Totally agree on the whole pumpkin thing. It’s like bringing out Christmas in July! Ridiculous. This looks like the perfect way to kick off October. Can’t wait to see that cute puppy!

  • dixya | food, pleasure, and health says:

    oopss i started pumpkin recipes 2 weeks ago but im trying to pace myself.. on a different note, im so excited that you guys will get your baby sooner!!! Bailey loves something called “Himayalan Chews” they are basically hard cheese so instead of a hyde or bones, i give her that and she loves it. Also, when you buy a leash, make sure to get the one with harness. im not a dog expert but if you have any questions, i m here…

  • Jenny Flake says:

    Love this fun festive oatmeal!!

  • Betsy says:

    Puppies throw your world upside down just as much as a baby! My advice, kennel train and it will make potty training much easier and faster. Yes, use a dremel! Our dog only tolerates that and it reduces the chance of clipping the quick.

  • marla says:

    This is my favorite fall flavored oatmeal!! Congrats on your upcoming bundle of love!!

  • Rachel @ Baked by Rachel says:

    I’m SO freaking excited for all of the pending puppy pictures :)

  • nicole @ I am a Honey Bee says:

    I’ve never had baked oatmeal.
    Sounds awesome.

  • Heather Christo says:

    It actually is a lot like having a new baby to be honest! A lot. very exciting! and great looking oatmeal!

  • Maria says:

    I could eat oatmeal everyday! This looks great!

  • Brianna T. says:

    That pumpkin oatmeal looks amazing! I highly suggest crate training your puppy. It gives them a safe place, makes house raining easier, and you won’t have to worry about your puppy destroying your house while you are gone. Lupine collars, leashes, & harnesses have a lifetime warranty even if it is chewed, Blue Buffalo dog food is excellent (no fillers), and I would recommend staying away from rawhide bones- they make many dogs sick and sometimes can lead to choking if a large piece brakes off. I’ve trained my dogs using hand signals and short phrases and would suggest looking into it. In order to get them to sit, I hold up one finger. If I drop a piece of food, I tell them to “leave it” and “drop it” if they do pick it up. It has worked really well for my family. Clicker training is also very popular (Petsmart training does this). I can’t wait to see pictures of your new puppy!

    Congrats on the puppy! I got my Ike (a tri-colored Corgi) almost 8 years ago and have been so in love since then. The best advice I received was from my dad who has always had the most well-trained blue heelers. He told me to never call Ike unless I could make him come to me. So if he’s in the back yard or running at the dog park, don’t call him, go get him. He also gave me this long, long leash so Ike could wander off and forget he was on a leash. Then I would take up the slack and call him and give him lots of praise and treats when he came. I did this with Ike for the first two years and now he always comes when I call. I don’t think he knows it’s optional. People are amazed.. We’ll be hiking and Ike will be a ways off or after a chipmunk. I’ll call him and he always comes running back. Good luck with your puppy. I can’t wait til I get your cookbook, which I’ve pre-ordered!

    • Julie says:

      Thanks for the tips! We’re getting a tri-head corgi too!!! :) how was crate-training and potty-training the little one? I can’t wait until you can get the cookbook, either!!
