Harvest Baked Oatmeal

Going back to the baked oatmeal I was making often this past spring and summer I decided to try out a new version using pumpkin. This oatmeal is vegetarian but not vegan as I used egg substitute (eg. Egg Beaters®). I had considered doing a swap out with flax-seed meal but in this recipe it really benefits from the eggs. Kirk always enjoys the baked oatmeal, they are bar like and can be munched with fingers even while driving. It also bakes up well the night before and you can cut a slab off and go.
