Baked Cranberry Oatmeal

(6 servings)

  • 1 and 1/2 cups Old Fashioned oats
  • 3 cups of milk
  • 6 tablespoons of brown sugar
  • 1 and 1/2 tablespoons butter or margarine
  • 2 teaspoons ground cinnamon
  • 1 and 1/2 cups finely chopped apples
  • 3/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 3/4 cup coarsely chopped walnuts of pecans (or even peanuts)
Here's a recipe that's received some rave reviews. As of July 2013, everyone who's tried it has given it a perfect rating. This morning, I tried it myself and I have to concur. It was easy to make and really tasty. I liked how the top had a bit of crust while the inside was soft and moist. I used pecans for my version. It certainly didn't hurt that I topped each serving with dab of whipped cream. I wholeheartedly recommend this oatmeal.

How To Make Baked Cranberry Oatmeal

Preheat the oven to 350F degrees.

Coat square pan (9 inch) with nonstick spray.

In a large saucepan, bring the milk, brown sugar, margarine, and cinnamon to a boil.

Concurrently, in a large mixing bowl, mix together the oats, chopped apple, cranberries, and nuts; spread evenly into the prepared pan.

When the milk mixture begins to boil, pour out evenly over the oatmeal mixture.

Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes, or until the liquid has been absorbed and the oatmeal is tender.

Cut the mixture into 6 servings, scooping each out into a cereal bowl.

Garnish with a sliced apple (if desired).
