Cranberry Almond Baked Oatmeal

Good morning!!  Baking up a pan of oatmeal is a favorite when kids are in the house.  This was our Thanksgiving morning breakfast.  Bake it up.  Set it out with a basket of  berries, brown sugar, bananas and cream and as people wander in one by one breakfast is ready when they are.  Hearty, easy and delish!

2 cups rolled oats
3/4 cup  almonds, toasted, chopped*
1/3 cup dried cranberries, minced
1 tsp. cinnamon
1/2 tsp. salt
1  3/4 cup milk
2 eggs, beaten
1/3 cup maple syrup
1 tsp. vanilla
serve with cream or milk

In a large mixing bowl stir all the ingredients together.  Spoon the mixture into a 2 quart baking dish that has been sprayed with cooking spray and pop it all into a 350 degree oven for 35 to 40 minutes, until the center is firm.

Serve with milk or cream and berries or bananas (or if grand-girls are in the house– chocolate sprinkles).

*Sliced, toasted almonds in bags ready to use at Trader Joe’s.

  1. OMG!!! This looks magnificent 🙂 and so healthy. I love oatmeal, especially steel-cut oats (have you heard of them – so yummy and even more healthy) Blessings, Rhonda! Happy holidays – you are so great, and I love how you love your family. ❤ Debbie xo

    • Hey Debbie– Yep, have steel cut oats in the cupboard. Larry has 3 kinds of grains he cooks together every morning for breakfast in a big bowl– so much oatmeal!! Hope your retreat is a blessing– will you write about if for us?? take care. xox

  2. Hi Rhonda – I have actually never baked oatmeal, although I have seen all types of recipes on the web. I make an easy overnight oatmeal that you just put in the fridge with your liquid (I use almond milk since I don’t drink regular milk) and then you gussy it up in the am with nuts, fruit, grated carrot, coconut, etc. It’s not cooked at all but my, it is such a huge hit whenever I make it. Will have to try yours! -Kat
