I'm trying to learn better ways to cook oatmeal so that I'll enjoy eating it more often. This is really good! I really liked a different baked oatmeal dish, so thought I would try this one. This one is nothing like the other, but is also really good. I used blueberries instead od cranberries. It is nice to eat oatmeal that isn't too sweet! Thanks!

This is really good! I agree - might never eat oatmeal any other way from now on. I've made it twice and now add about 1/2 tsp salt, extra tsp of cinnamon and 1 tsp vanilla to the milk mixture. This seems to bring out the flavors better. YUM!! FYI, it's 5 WW pts per serving without the nuts.

DD has been asking for baked oatmeal for several weeks and I finally got around to baking some for her. I used dried cherries as I had some that needed to be used up, a granny smith apple and pecans (our favorite nut for baking). It smelled heavenly while baking and the taste was wonderful. A nice change from regular oatmeal. Will definitely make this again. Thanks for posting this Tish! Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.
