Baked Pumpkin Oatmeal

Eating oatmeal for breakfast is one of the best ways to add more fiber to your diet, and can keep you full until lunchtime.

Baked oatmeal is a great alternative to cooked oatmeal because it can be prepared ahead of time and reheated in the microwave. The uncooked oatmeal "batter" can also be stored overnight to bake the next day - just stir before baking.
