Great recipe! My experience with baked oatmeal in the past is that it is usually kinda dry. I wanted to avoid that with this recipe, so I made it as written except I used pecans (it was what I had) and added a peeled, grated apple, which provided some extra moisture and put it over the top. Yummy- will definitely make this again. Great make-ahead breakfast to take to work. Thanks puppitypup!
I love baked oatmeal, and this is no exception. I have never made it with cranberries, so that was a nice addition. I did add 1/4 cup of brown sugar and 2 tablespoons of maple syrup to this, and I don't like things too sweet. I also added more walnuts and baked it for 30 minutes. It was a great breakfast!
This was a real breakfast treat. I made it with almonds rather than walnuts as they were the only nuts I had. I think this recipe lends itself to all sorts of substitutions--dried cherries and almonds, dried apricots and pecans, etc. Other than the nut substitution I made this as written. I thought the amount of sugar was just right and I did not add any when serving. Thanks for a very yummy recipe puppitypup. Made and reviewed for ZWT4.
