Ok, for all of those out there who are crazy about cranberries this recipe is crazy good and best of all, it is really good for you! This is the most delicious baked oatmeal you'll ever have. The berries will burst in your mouth with every bite!! I use overflowing 1/4 cups for both the unsweetened applesauce and the brown sugar.
- 1⁄4 cup unsweetened applesauce
- 1⁄4-1⁄2 cup brown sugar
- 1 egg
- 1 1⁄2 cups quick oats
- 1 teaspoon baking powder
- 1⁄2 teaspoon salt
- 1⁄2 cup milk
- 1⁄2 teaspoon cinnamon
- 1 teaspoon vanilla
- 1⁄2 cup fresh frozen premium cranberries
- cinnamon sugar, spice
- Preheat oven to 350°F.
- Combine unsweetened applesauce, sugar and egg.
- Add rest of ingredients and mix well.
- Pour into a greased 9 or 10" pie pan (I use a 10", but think 9" should be okay).
- Sprinkle with ample amount cinnamon sugar.
- Bake for 25 minutes.
- Serve fresh and warm from the oven with milk and additional cinnamon sugar, if desired.
I make a lot of baked oatmeals, and was happy to try one with whole cranberries (I used fresh, and doubled them). I know from experience that this would have been too dry for me with these ratios, so I doubled the (3) liquids. Also, halved the cinnamon (personal preference) and added some pecans to it. It was really super!
I have had this several times in the past few months, and your right, it is awesome!!! What more could you ask for, delicious, good for you and something different for a change. Yummy!
