Pumpkin pie is my favorite dessert, and I could eat it twelve months a year. I love pumpkin. Everything pumpkin. Yet, I don’t like oatmeal. At least, not the mushy bowl of oatmeal most people eat in the morning. To be honest, this Yankee girl would take grits over mushy oatmeal any day! So, I went on a quest to find an oatmeal breakfast recipe that wasn’t mushy, and I found Crunchy-Top Apple Cinnamon Baked Oatmeal. It was so good, I decided to find a way to modify it so I could have my pumpkin and eat my oatmeal, too. And Pumpkin Oatmeal Breakfast Bake was born. Recipe!
