Baked Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal – Recipe!

Print Friendly, PDF & Email

A warm breakfast on a cold morning always tastes so good and this Baked Pumpkin Cranberry Oatmeal is delightfully spiced with cinnamon and dried cranberries for a seasonal treat.  It’s made with pantry ingredients that are stirred by hand in a big bowl and baked in a casserole dish with simplicity.

For flavor — I used canned pumpkin, vanilla, pumpkin pie spice, oatmeal and dried cranberries — all things you probably already have in your cupboard.  An egg, melted butter and milk are added to make it creamy smooth and then it’s baked until slightly puffed.  I served it warm with a dollop of yogurt and another dusting of spices to add protein and some aromatics.  Mornings should always taste this good.
