This recipe, as written, serves at least 8, not 4. No wonder the nutritional info was sky-high for calories, fat and carbs. Baked oatmeal is a favorite breakfast or mid-day snack for everyone in my family. My changes: 1/4 cup Splenda and 1/4 cup brown sugar (1 cup of sugar is way too much), 1/4 cup melted butter and 1/2 cup applesauce, 3/4 cup raisins, add 1/4 tsp cloves, 1/4 cup oat bran and 1/2 cup chopped pecans. I only bake it for 25-30 minutes at 350. Just right. Not dry. Baked oatmeal is great as a "breakfast-on-the-go" for anyone who doesn't have time to sit down and eat breakfast before going to school or work. A square of it can be eaten cold or nuked in the microwave to warm it up a bit and then, you're out the door. I like to cut a piece in half and have it with a cup of coffee or tea around 3 PM. So Good!!!-11 Oct 2007

This is one of my all-time favorite recipes! I had something similar when I went to the PA Amish country and changed up this recipe a bit to be more like that one.I use 3 tsp cinnamon instead of 2 tsp. I also use fresh or frozen blueberries (whatever is on hand) and put 1/2 cup on the bottom of my pan and 1/3 - 1/2 cup mixed in with the batter. This helps it be more moist and tastes so good! We also like this served warm with some milk poured over it.Overall, a great recipe and is wonderful for when you have guests over. I have also made these into muffins by adding 3/4 - 1 cup of flour to the batter. Enjoy! We sure do!-27 Mar 2007

Baked Oatmeal Recipe

The kids will thank you for this healthy and filling oatmeal recipe. Our homemade version is better for you and more flavorful than sugar-laden instant packets or regular oatmeal made on the stovetop. Actually, it&rsquos more reminiscent of bread pudding with its thick consistency. One bite, and you&rsquoll be reminded of the warm oatmeal cookies your mama used to make. Unlike a cookie or oatmeal bar, however, this baked oatmeal recipe really hits the spot and is full of healthy ingredients, like apples, pecans, and raisins. This recipe is easily adaptable, so feel free to use seasonal fruit and whatever nuts you have in the pantry. Here, though, Honeycrisp apples and crunchy pecans are our delicious weapon of choice to execute this baked breakfast. Begin by arranging chopped apples in a lightly greased baking dish. The key is to make sure you use regular, traditional rolled oats instead of quick-cooking oats so the oatmeal mixture cooks properly. Finish by sprinkling chopped pecans over the top. Bake until the oats are set and the top is golden and crumbly. The best thing about this oatmeal recipe is that it can be made in advance, and leftovers can be reheated or enjoyed cold the next day.

Apple Cranberry Baked Oatmeal:

There&rsquos something special about a big cup of coffee and a warm, wholesome breakfast on a chilly fall morning. The thought of it has me wanting to stay in my pj&rsquos all day, snuggling up under a blanket (and a kitty or two), and reading magazines on the couch all day. And the breakfast to start that day? This Apple Cranberry Baked Oatmeal.

Today I&rsquom back with my Tastes of the Season blogger friends. Each of us is sharing a seasonal breakfast idea. This collection of recipes is SO GOOD! Be sure to scroll down and check out everyone&rsquos recipe at the end of this post.

If you&rsquove been following IBC for a couple of years, you might remember another delicious baked oatmeal recipe that I shared: Pumpkin Baked Oatmeal. It has become a go-to for me. I&rsquove lost track of how many times I&rsquove made it.

But as much as I love that recipe, I also enjoy mixing things up sometimes. That&rsquos why I put together this new flavor combination. I think I might like it just as much!

The flavor of this Apple Cranberry Baked Oatmeal is just so-o-o good! The sweet apples pair wonderfully with the tart cranberries and crunchy pecans.

I like topping oatmeal with milk and pure maple syrup. And of course, my syrup of choice is Finding Home Farms Maple Syrup. It&rsquos the best. (You can purchase it HERE.)

Now that I&rsquove tempted you, I suppose you&rsquore wondering how to make it? Let me show you!

How can I prep this in advance?

There are two options for making baked oatmeal in advance. If you know you will be baking it the next day, you can mix together all the ingredients and place the baked oatmeal dish covered in the fridge overnight. Then in the morning, take it out of the fridge and pop it into the oven. Add an extra 10 minutes to the baking time.

Alternatively, you can bake this ahead of time and then warm individual portions in the microwave, oven, or toaster oven. Individual portions can also be frozen and then reheated for a quick breakfast. When reheating in the microwave, I like to add a little milk or almond milk to the oats to ensure they don't dry out.

Baked Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe

You can put this baked cranberry oatmeal together in 10 minutes. Then pop it into the fridge until the morning. It&rsquoll only take a further 20 minutes to bake.

Or you could even prep and bake this the night before. Then serve it in bowls reheated in the microwave in the morning. Nice and easy!

I&rsquod love to hear what you think of my recipe in the comments below and please do rate my recipe 5* if you like it! 🙂

Hot Cranberry Bake Recipe

Hot Cranberry Bake, a reader recipe by Sue-Sue Harstern of Louisville, Kentucky, was originally published in our November 1992 issue, but it&rsquos so good that we think it deserves a second look. In this simple, crisp-like dessert, Harstern layers fresh apples and cranberries in a two-quart baking dish, then tops the fruit with fresh lemon juice and granulated sugar. No stirring necessary! A crumbly mixture of quick-cooking oats, chopped walnuts (toast them for even more flavor), brown sugar, and melted butter (or margarine) is sprinkled over the fruit. Then the dish is baked at 325˚F for one hour, or until the topping is crisp and golden and the fruit is tender and bubbly underneath. Harstern suggests serving Hot Cranberry Bake warm with vanilla ice cream and we couldn&rsquot agree more. The creamy, sweet ice cream cuts the tartness of the cranberries and dresses up this homey dessert. While we love the recipe as-is, we also like the flexibility of it. You can use any cooking apple&mdashwe prefer the flavor and texture of Honeycrisp, Fuji, or Gala, although a combination of any of these apples will also work well. You can easily swap out the walnuts for chopped pecans, if you prefer. You can also add spices to the oat topping for more flavor and warmth. We recommend adding up to 1/2 teaspoon of dried spices such as cinnamon, nutmeg, or apple pie spice. And if you&rsquore looking for a fantastic dessert that also happens to be dairy-free or vegan, you can make this dish with an equal amount of melted or liquid coconut oil in place of the butter. The coconut oil adds a subtle sweetness to the topping and browns just as nicely as butter.

How to Make This Baked Goat Cheese Roasted Cranberry Appetizer

This delicious appetizer is super easy to make. Wash your cranberries and while they&rsquore draining, mix up the balsamic and honey in a small bowl. Toss in the cranberries and set the bowl aside.

After you roast the almonds, chop them up and then roll the goat cheese into the almonds. This gets a little messy so I usually throw on some disposable kitchen gloves.

Seriously, those things are amazing.

I usually use the cutting board I chopped the almonds on because its great for leverage and I can pick up whatever almond shavings may getaway.

Anyway, manipulate the goat cheese into a disc shape (see above picture for an example) and place the cheese in the center of a pie plate.

Then pour the cranberries all around the goat cheese log. Did a little balsamic honey dribble on top of the goat cheese? That&rsquos awesome. It&rsquos just going to add more flavor to the appetizer.

Sprinkle some additional almonds on top, throw it in the oven and let it bake.

When you pull it out of the oven, you are going to have a gooey, cheesy, sweet pile of awesome. We usually serve this with crackers or bread &ndash pictured are little toasts imported from France and olive oil crackers.

Cranberry sauce is a necessary holiday side dish but I think many people just open up that iconic Thanksgiving cranberry-sauce-in-a-can and then go on with their merry way.

This holiday appetizer just might change the way you think about cranberries.

Easy Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe

Oatmeal is always a great option for breakfast. I’ve been making my Roasted Blueberry Oatmeal and Coconut Berries Oatmeal Recipe almost everyday, just because I love it to the point that I never get sick of it. I really don’t know why I don’t post more oatmeal recipes on this blog. But, these days I made this Easy Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe, using my leftover cranberry sauce recipe that I posted for Thanksgiving, and it was so creamy and delicious that I decided to share with you today.

It’s so easy and quick to make and I bet you already have all the ingredients in your kitchen. I like to make my oatmeal with 1 cup of oats and 2 cups of coconut/almond milk because it gets creamier. But I’ve seen some recipes with 1 cup of oats and 1 1/2 cups of any type of milk you prefer. It will depend on your taste. If you prefer creamier and a little bit runny oatmeal I suggest you make it with 1 cup of oats and 2 cups of milk.

You can also add chia seeds like I did just to have more nutrients to morning breakfast. And of course let’s not forget to talk about the homemade cranberry sauce. I made it a week ago for Thanksgiving and since I had leftovers I decided to use it in my oatmeal. Mm… Such a good combo! I made it sugar-free, but you can use maple, honey or even white sugar if you prefer. So, ready to dig in? Enjoy!
