Baked Butternut Squash Oatmeal

Original recipe found on foodgawker

2 cups butternut squash puree (or pumpkin as original recipe calls for)
1/2 cup brown sugar
2 eggs
1 tsp pumpkin pie spice
3/4 tsp baking powder
1/2 tsp vanilla
1-1/2 cups milk
2-1/2 cups multigrain hot cereal

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees.

In a large bowl, whisk together the butternut squash puree, brown sugar, eggs, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, and baking powder until smooth. Whisk in the milk.

Mix the dry oats into the squash mixture. Coat an 8x8 baking dish with non-stick spray. Pour in the squash oat mixture. Cover with foil and bake in the preheated oven for 45 minutes, removing the foil after the first 30 minutes.

Serve hot right out of the oven or refrigerate until ready to serve. Can be eaten cold or reheated. Top with milk, maple syrup, whipped cream, or nuts.
