- 1/2 cup pecan pieces (or chopped pecans)
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 2 teaspoons Pumpkin Pie Spice (or 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon, 1/2 teaspoon ground ginger, 1/4 teaspoon ground cloves and 1/4 teaspoon ground nutmeg)

- 1 tablespoon pure vanilla extract
- For serving: 1 tablespoon coconut oil melted with 1 tablespoon maple syrup or maple Greek yogurt*
- Preheat the oven to 375 degrees Fahrenheit.*
- Butter an 8 x 8″ or 9 x 9″ pan. In a medium bowl, mix together the rolled oats, pecan pieces, baking powder, pumpkin spice, and kosher salt.
- Dump the dries into the prepared pan.
- In the same bowl, whisk together the pumpkin puree, milk, maple syrup, melted cooled coconut oil, and vanilla. Drizzle the milk mixture over the oats. Stir lightly with a fork to make everything gets evenly incorporated.
