  • HOW TO SERVE BAKED OATMEAL WITH PECAN PIE. In comparison to stovetop oatmeal, baked oatmeal is a little more set, if you’ve never tried it. It will maintain its shape whether you slice it or scoop it. My preferred method is to place my slice or scoop into a bowl, add a small amount of milk, and then pour maple syrup on top. Some people use a fork and plate to eat theirs. You are in charge! Here are some more delectable topping ideas and serving recommendations.
  • INCLUDING A DOSE OF YOGURT Sometimes it’s great to top your warm pecan pie oatmeal with a dollop of cold plain or vanilla yogurt for a little hot/cold action.
  • A LITTLE MORE SYRUP, PLEASE. I frequently add an additional little drizzle of syrup just before serving to create a little glossy effect and play up those delicious flavours of maple, pecan, and vanilla.
  • OR NEW BERRIES OR SLICED BANANAS. Feel free to top your baked oatmeal with sliced bananas, fresh blueberries or strawberries, etc. since pecans pair well with all kinds of fruit. (It reminds me somewhat of berry crisp or banana nut pancakes!)
