Baked Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal

I found this recipe on IT IS WONDERFUL!

(4 servings)

1 cup oats - old fashioned or quick
3/4 cup pumpkin puree
3/4 cup milk
1/4 cup brown sugar
1 Tablespoon butter - softened
1 teaspoon vanilla
1/2 teaspoon orange zest
1/2 teaspoon cinnamon
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon ground ginger
1/8 teaspoon ground cloves
1/8 teaspoon ground nutmeg

For The Topping:
1/4 cup chopped pecans or walnuts
2 Tablespoons white sugar
2 Tablespoon softened butter

Preheat oven to 375 degrees.

Prepare 4 individual 1-cup ramekins by coating the inside generously with cooking spray.

Prepare the topping mixture by combining the three ingredients together in a small bowl. Set aside.

Mix all dry spices together in a small bowl.

Combine all other ingredients together in a large mixing bowl. Mix well and slowly sprinkle in the spice mixture at the end so it's distributed evenly through the mix.

Divide the mixture among the four ramekins.

Bake for 10 minutes. Carefully sprinkle equal parts of the topping mixture over each serving. Bake for an additional 7 minutes.

Allow oatmeal to cool at least 5 minutes before serving. Enjoy!

To make this dish extra special, serve with a cool heaping Tablespoon of reduced-fat vanilla ice cream or whipping cream on top.
