Baked Cranberry Oatmeal

Baked Cranberry Oatmeal

(6 servings)    Printable Version
  • 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).

I've been making this for several years and it's my favorite breakfast ever! Everybody I've made it for asks for the recipe. I switched to almond milk a while back and use Trader Joe's orange dried cranberries. Wow!

This has become one of my very favorite breakfasts! I always use Trader Joe's orange-flavored dried cranberries. So delicious, and it gets a little healthier with the addition of a couple tablespoons of flax meal. Try it with a little maple syrup for fancy breakfast occasions.

We made it with steel cut oatmeal, raw milk and raw butter and it was amazing. Oh, and a little vanilla extract.

Great breakfast. I used 3 tsp. cinnamon and we put vanilla yogurt on top. Our three kids loved it!

Delicious - tastes like a less sweet version of apple pie! next time I make it I think I'll double the cinnamon - I increased it to 3 teaspoons this time, but I think next time I make it I will use 4. This recipe is a keeper - I will be making it again!

My first time trying this was at a restaurant and it was not on the menu. It was on a chalk board. So I decided to try it and fell in love with it. I just had to have the recipe. I asked for the cook to come to me but she had left for the day. So they called her on the phone for me.

I thought the oatmeal was very good even though I cut back the brown sugar to 4 tablespoons.

The only thing this recipe was missing, in my opinion, was a little salt. I just added 1/4 to 1/2 tsp. salt to the milk. This is our family's favorite breakfast.
