Preheat oven to 350 F and lightly grease the inside of a 2 quart (10 cup) casserole dish or baking pan. Set aside. (For oatmeal cups - spray a 12 cup muffin tin baking spray or use silicone muffin liners)
In a large bowl, whisk the eggs and milk until combined. Stir in pumpkin, maple syrup, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, flax seeds and baking powder. Gently fold in in oats and and then 3/4 cup of chopped nuts and chocolate.
Spread batter evenly into pan (or muffin tins if using) and top with remaining nuts and chocolate.
