I have always loved how versatile oats are! They are the perfect whole grain for lots of great foods. Plus, with baked oatmeal there are so many things that you can mix into it to give it a completely different taste.
For fall, I decided to make a spiced oatmeal and add pumpkin spice syrup on top. Because you are adding syrup on top, you can always use less maple syrup within the oatmeal when baking.
To prepare the oatmeal, preheat the oven to 375˚F. Grease the baking dish.
In a bowl, combine the buttermilk, maple syrup, eggs and vanilla. Whisk until the eggs are light and everything is well-blended.
In the baking dish combine the oats, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, baking powder and salt. Toss. gently to make sure the spices are well-distributed.

Drizzle the wet ingredients over the oat mixture and stir until combined.
Bake for 40-45 minutes, until the top is crispy and golden.
While the oatmeal is baking, make the syrup.
In a medium saucepan, combine all of the ingredients for the syrup. Stirring often, bring the mixture to a boil. Continue boiling until it reaches a syrup consistency.
Remove your baked oatmeal from the oven and let it cool for a few minutes before drizzling the pumpkin spice syrup on the top before serving.
Refrain from eating the entire pan in one sitting.
