Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal
1/2 cup canned pumpkin puree
1/4 cup maple syrup
2/3 cup non-dairy milk
3 Tbsp Soom Premium or Organic Tahini
1 tsp vanilla
1 cup old fashioned oats
1/2 tsp baking soda
1 1/2 tsp baking powder
1 tsp cinnamon
1/4 tsp nutmeg
pinch of salt
pinch of ginger (optional)
1/4 tsp allspice (optional)
1/4-1/2 cup chocolate chips (optional)
Preheat oven to 350F. Grease a small casserole dish (8" or less) or cast iron skillet (10" or smaller).
Place all ingredients except chocolate chips in a blender and blend until smooth. Gently stir in chocolate chips.
Pour into prepared baking dish and bake for 20 minutes or until a knife comes out clean. (You can undercook a little if you prefer your oatmeal creamier instead of cake-like.)
Scoop into bowl and enjoy! (Top with ice cream or whipped cream to make into a dessert.)
*Note: if using cast iron, your oatmeal will cook more quickly so check for doneness around the 17 minute mark.
