     Have you been searching for a fabulous warm and filling breakfast? Look no further! Baked oatmeal loaded with pumpkin and a hint of spice is a good start. Add a swirl of maple sweetened cream cheese to make it a pumpkin roll inspired masterpiece.

     Ask and you shall receive! One of you suggested a pumpkin roll version of baked oatmeal would be a good idea.

     Of course I instantly agreed!  I couldn’t wait to give it a whirl.

     Luckily I had the building blocks ready. With my pumpkin pie baked oatmeal, I knew I had a good starting point.

     I have done a cream cheese swirl in oatmeal before in the strawberry cheesecake baked oatmeal. So I combined the two with a few twists to come up with this delectable option.

       If you didn’t know, I am a huge baked oatmeal fan. Especially when it results in a healthy breakfast inspired by desserts.

       That is why you’ll find recipes like brownie baked oatmeal and pineapple right side up baked oatmeal here on my site. So a pumpkin roll baked oatmeal seemed like a fabulous addition to the collection.

     After I made it I wished I had made it in a round pan and piped the cream cheese swirl in a spiral. That would have made it look more like the cake that inspired it.

     As it was, it turned out delicious.  It tastes like fall and dessert all in one.

      The recipe as written is not super sweet. It is meant to be a relatively healthy breakfast after all.

     If you would like it to be a bit sweeter, feel free to add a couple of extra tablespoons of syrup to both the oatmeal mixture and the cream cheese.

    Or you can just drizzle a bit of syrup over the finished baked oatmeal.  Or dust it with powdered sugar. Or a dollop of maple whipped cream!

     Do you have a favorite baked oatmeal recipe? I’d love to hear about it!

We are going camping next weekend. Can this be prepared the night before?

Yes! It is really good leftover, just keep it chilled so the cream cheese doesn't go bad. It's good served warm or at room temperature, so it will be great for camping!
