1 3/4 cups old-fashioned oats
2 teaspoons pumpkin pie spice
1/4 teaspoon salt
1 1/2 teaspoon baking powder
1/4 cup raisins (optional) (I didn't use!)
1 cup canned pumpkin (not pumpkin pie mix)
1/2 cup maple syrup
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 1/2 cups milk (I used 1%)
2 large eggs
1/4 cup pecans, chopped

Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Place 8 (1/2 cup) ramekins on a baking sheet. Spray lightly with cooking spray,

In a large bowl, combine the oats, pumpkin pie spice, salt, baking powder and raisins (if using.)

In another bowl whisk together the pumpkin, maple syrup, butter, milk and eggs.

Add the wet ingredients to the dry ingredients and combine well. Pour into prepared ramekins and top each with 1/2 TBSP of chopped pecans.

Bake for 25-28 minutes. Alternately, you could bake this in a one quart baking dish and adjust baking time accordingly.
