Long time, no recipe! My Baked Banana Oatmeal is one of the top recipes on KERF and I haven’t made it in ages. Years! Now that my baking bug has kicked in, I knew I wanted to make it for breakfast one morning. Put it in after nursing and take it out after my shower!

However, of course this fall had to be a pumpkin version!!

Recipe –> Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Foodblog-7517

This was soooo good! Gooey and pumpkiny and great hot out of the oven. It’s a cinch to make and bakes in 30 minutes flat.

Foodblog-7522

Foodblog-7528

Topped with melty Barney Butter frosting and some Autumn Spice Granola [NOW AVAILABLE online!!]

Foodblog-7530

Served with some delicious coffee! Although I’m drinking mostly decaf (half caf when Matt is home), I’m LOVING coffee again!

Foodblog-7527

Late morning we ventured out to meet my mother’s group!! I’ve been attending since I was just barely pregnant and have enjoyed watching these cute babies grow up! It was fun to introduce Maze and to hear about the sleep training and solid foods that they are now going through. It’s great to be a part of a group with older babies because I can watch, observe and learn!

Foodblog-7546

Alice hosted and made this awesome apple bread, which I had a slice of

Foodblog-7538

Along with some cucumber and hummus (around 1pm)

Foodblog-7540

There was also some vino!! Although it never got opened. Hilarious before noon though.

Foodblog-7539

Maze had a blast and slept on my chest for a good portion of the time.

Foodblog-7541

He was sportin’ a cute outfit for all of the ladies – including Bison Booties which I’m featuring on BERF soon!

Foodblog-2-4

Back at home I had a quick + simple lunch

Foodblog-7553

Leftover chicken fried rice (Hillary posted both recipes in the comments from yesterday’s post!) mixed with chopped carrot and pepper and a bed of baby kale. Topped with spiced pecans!

Foodblog-7552

My afternoon was spent on a crazy “organize the closet” project. I put away all of my maternity clothes (for baby #2 – we are hoping for about 3-4 years apart if we are lucky) and my summer clothes into the attic and unpacked my winter stuff. I am in this very weird stage where maternity clothes are swimming on me but a lot of my old clothes just feel too snug. I have about 3 pairs of pants that fit well and 20 pairs that fit un-well! I don’t want to go shopping, so I guess I need to eat less dessert : )

Foodblog-7554

Afternoon snack: a pumpkin ball!

Foodblog-7555

Matt and I went downtown for dinner tonight at the last minute when we got wind of a fun event at Fellini’s – live music and free beer sponsored by our radio friends at 106.1 The Corner.

Foodblog-7556

We didn’t end up staying too long, but we did run into newlyweds Jess + Mike!

Foodblog-7557

A spontaneous dinner out occurred.

Foodblog-7561

We used to say “we’re about to have a baby better go out to dinner while we can” and now the mindset is “we’re about to have an older, crying, baby/toddler/child better go out while we can!”

FYI, everyone thinks Maze in his mohawk jacket is Matt wearing a puppy!

Foodblog-7570

We found more live music at The Whiskey Jar that pulled us in! <3 Bluegrass!!

Foodblog-7558

We enjoyed peanuts with our peanut. [I had to…]

Foodblog-7563

Shared a mint julep [had to…]

Foodblog--15

I got a salad with spinach, egg, prosciutto and homemade ranch dressing

Foodblog-7571

Matt got this huge BBQ sampler and we both shared bites

Foodblog-7574

Foodblog-7578

I had a bite of Pumpkin Bar when we returned home….what’s a few more days without my old jeans Winking smile

[PSA: My blog server is migrating tonight, 10/17, from 9pm to about 1am EST. Everything will be down during that time and will hopefully come back soon!]

Winter will definitely bring back the baked oatmeal for me! I need to make another batch of my baked oatmeal muffins – they are awesome to take to-go if you are always running late (and I am).

You guys are the coolest parents – love how you take Maze everywhere!

Maze looks so cute in that outfit with the booties! And I love the quilt he’s laying on, I love quilts although don’t have any, no one in my family is much into sewing. I tried to make one in High School but it’s one of those projects you start but never finish…

Hi, I want to try the baked pumpkin oatmeal recipe, but quick question, what is a “scant cup of pumpkin”? Thanks!

The opposite of a heaping cup… Just use a barely full cup

Your pumpkin oatmeal breakfast looks delish…is it a loaf? What a fun evening you had! Enjoy all the stages of Mazen…they will pass by rather quickly…before you know it there will be two and you will wonder where the time went. My boys are in their teens now…a whole different ball game…but I am still loving every minute of it!

Reply

14 KathEats October 17, 2012 at 8:35 am

Yeah since I used a small deeper pan it came out like a loaf. Could also be a pie!

Reply

15 Susan H. @ The Food Allergy Chronicles October 17, 2012 at 10:08 am

Lovely! I think I am going to try adapting it to be dairy and egg free. It only contains sugar on the top…does that mean it is not very sweet? Perhaps I could add a touch of honey? Off to the grocery store for some pumpkin! :)

16 KathEats October 17, 2012 at 11:35 am

Yeah not very sweet at all. I only did a tiny bit of brown sugar and could barely taste it.

Is the baked oatmeal almost like a bar?

Your jeans might not fit well til you stop breast feeding, even if you cut out the extra dessert. Mother nature’s way of making sure that the baby gets fed even if we go in to starvation mode. I remember a friend being very angry at her trainer because he said, “Until you stop breast feeding, those saddle bags will not come off!” BTW-I am not at all inferring that you have saddle bags! ;)

Agreed! The body holds onto about 5 lbs to protect the milk supply (don’t want to run out!). Wish more mothers new about this…

Reply

23 Melissa @ HerGreenLife October 17, 2012 at 1:34 pm

It took me 12-14 weeks to fit [somewhat comfortably] in my pre-pregnancy clothes, which I wasn’t expecting, especially because I was back to my pre-pregnancy weight well before that.

It might be sooner for you, since you’re back to being fairly active — my C-section recovery definitely delayed my activity. I’m amazed just at reading about all of the walking you were doing soon after labor — that was out of the question for me :(

Regardless of weight, I guess it takes things a little while to go back to where they were before. Fortunately, the timing worked well with getting back into work clothes by the end of maternity leave.

Reply

24 Cristal October 17, 2012 at 7:18 pm

I had the opposite happen to me. I lost a ton of weight while I was breast feeding. It was actually coming off really fast. Then after 14 months I stopped, and I have gained back about 5 pounds…

I love your baked oatmeal recipe. I made a double batch on the weekend a couple of weeks ago and froze it in individual portions. I eat one for breakfast almost every morning. It reheats beautifully!

Reply

31 Deirdre @ Oh Well Whatever October 17, 2012 at 8:40 am

Yes get out while you can! My husband and I used to go out a lot and when Ryleigh was a baby it was so easy!! Now she is 21 months and even though she is a super good easy going kid it is not that much fun anymore. Oh and watch out for the waiters that will place beers, wine, hot coffee, and burning hot plates of food right in front of the high chair. Ugh! Had a giant tall glass of beer at Claim Jumper crash, poor and break all over the baby one night – we missed her hand by a split second when we were talking as the waiter placed it in front of her. Luckily everyone was ok and the bottom basket of my stroller is now marinated in beer. Classy.

32 Kimberly @ Healthy Strides October 17, 2012 at 8:45 am

I definitely need to make some baked oatmeal! It’s perfect for my breakfast – and my toddler’s. He wakes up ravenous and can hardly wait for me to make his egg and toast. And, I hate to say it, but you are right about eating out now while Maze is little. It’s SO much easier when they nap a lot or can be soothed by a nursing session in the corner of a booth. M is 15-months-old and though we refuse to not eat out because of him, some restaurant trips are a little less fun when he wants to smash beans and avocado on your white shirt as he whines.

Oh yay!! I’m so glad Hillary posted the recipes!! :)

I’ve never done baked oatmeal but keep meaning to try it…tis the season for pumpkin so I may just have to give it a whirl! Anything that saves time nowadays is A-OK with me!

I am fairly new to your blog, & am enjoying going through, trying new recipes, & reminiscing, when my own were so young & small. Not to discourage you, or maybe to encourage you, depending on how you look at it, but I found after my first that even after I had lost my weight, my body had changed shape & a lot of my bottoms just didn’t fit quite the same. I know it’s fairly early for you, but I would still treat myself to one or two versatile bottoms that you feel good in. I waited a long time, & looking back felt kinda like frumpy mommy for some time. I wish I had just bit the bullet & treated myself to a couple outfits that made me feel good while I was at that in between stage.
Food for thought..

Reply

39 Nicole October 17, 2012 at 9:52 am

Your old jeans may not ever fit the same–even if you get to the same weight you were before Maze. I found I had to go to Old Navy and try a couple different styles after having my third son. Some things just change and never quite go back (like me going from a size 8 shoe pre-kids to a 9-9 1/2 after three!) LOL

Reply

40 Lindsey October 17, 2012 at 9:59 am

I wanted to say really quick that I love the last sentence you threw in there. Your old jeans may never fit the way they used to, but that’s ok. It’s amazing the way my perspective on fitting into those jeans has changed since I had my son. Of course, being healthy is key, but I find that I give myself a little more time to relax about it now :) Enjoy your pumpkin bar, girl!

I have about two pair of pants that fit well too (I’m regretting wearing such tight clothes before I was pregnant- they were pretty slim then) but I can button all of them, but I would NEVER wear them out —– I told my mom yesterday over the phone that ‘I don’t know what I’m going to do!’ I don’t want to wear elastic maternity pants because that will never motivate me to make my clothes fit better. Ugh.
I’m going to have to make the pumpkin balls today! (that is if nap-time allows :) )

Girl you’re such a huge help in my life! Mazen is about a week or so older than my baby boy, Santiago, so I love love love reading all of his milestones and your milestones as a mama – but things like puttin away maternity clothes, organizing baby’s big boy clothes, etc – I never remember that I ought to do these things until I see your blog. Today’s plan? Maternity clothes out! Although, like you most of my maternity wear is big on me and I’m prettyyyy sure my skinny jeans aren’t going to zip up too well yet. I could always give em a try, though.

You’re lovely! Thanks for the pumpkin delight recipe :) it looks fantastic!

I hear you on the not wanting to go shopping for new clothes! I have boxes of clothes that still don’t fit me (the pregnancy weight just isn’t melting off like I’d hoped) so I am still wearing maternity pants. Although I did finally buy one new pair of pants this weekend since I am down to only 2 pairs of maternity pants that fit and one of them are getting a bit big.

I know you weren’t a huge coffee drinker before Mazen but am curious as to whether or not you weaned yourself off caffeine while trying to get pregnant, specifically within the two week wait period…thanks!

Reply

63 KathEats October 17, 2012 at 1:46 pm

I had pretty much switched to decaf, but I drank black tea and a little caffeine throughout pregnant. Just never more than 1 caffeinated thing at a time (so never 2-3 cups of black tea). The research says a small amount is OK.

I’m hoping that being proactive about crib introducing early and doing the shush-pat techniques (which you can do both holding them and while they are lying in the crib when they’re older) will help him learn so we won’t have to do anything drastic. I don’t have any plans to do any Ferbering, but we’ll cross that bridge if we get there.

You are doing great- only 5 weeks out- and look fabulous! Those jeans might take a year to fit “right” even if you lose all the weight before then. It takes 9 months in…will take at least 9 months out. I’m sure you know that.

My advice would be to get some flattering and comfy jeans/pants to get you through the winter. You want to feel good while you wait for your body to get back to “normal”.

Loving pumpkin oatmeal here too- almost every morning lately! YUM!

Hi Kath, I’ve been reading your blog for long, and just so summoned the urge to tell you what an inspiration you are, and I’m happy to witness that there is now a cute addition to your family.

I’ve a question for you: How do you recover from over-eating days? Say you ate too much one day, how you do prevent yourself from not beating yourself down and feel motivated to practice a healthy lifestyle? I’d love to hear your tips and advices!

Your meals are fantastic! No wonder you never get bored of eating healthy (and balanced!).

That would be funny if someone actually carried a puppy or animal in a baby carrier (LOL) But I am sure that there are carriers of the such for animals.

The pumpkin oatmeal is very good but needed way more spice! Did you really use only 1/4 t of pumpkin pie spice? Mine was very bland. I will up the spice next time. The concept is great though and I thank you for the recipe.

Your banana baked oatmeal is a staple recipe for me – I make it every Sunday night and have breakfast ready for most of the week. Don’t even have to read the recipe anymore! I was not a huge fan of oatmeal before reading your blog, but love it everyday now. Cheapest and healthiest breakfast!

Enjoy that dessert while you’re still breastfeeding – the weight will still come off over the next few months and until then, get some interim pants :)

Baked pumpkin oatmeal: My husband served it up à la mode. It was decadent with a side of coffee. Probably best to eat ice cream in the morning anyway, right? So you can work it off for the rest of the day?
