Apple Cranberry Oatmeal Bake


  • 1/2 Cup Chopped Pecans
  • 2 Cup Old Fashioned Oats
  • 1 1/2 tsp Ground Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp Salt
  • 1/2 tsp Ground Nutmeg
  • 1 3/4 Cup Low Fat or Skim Milk
  • 1/3 Cup Pure Maple Syrup
  • 1 Tbsp. Light Butter, melted
  • 2 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 Cup Fresh or Frozen Unsweetened Cranberries
  • 1 Medium Apple, finely chopped


  1. Preheat the oven to 375 F. Lightly grease a 8 x 8 inch baking pan with non-stick spray.
  2. In a medium bowl, combine the oats, pecans, cinnamon, salt, and nutmeg. Whisk to combine.
  3. Slowly add in milk, maple syrup, melted butter, and vanilla extract. Mix until well combined.
  4. Add in chopped apples and cranberries and fold in using a rubber spatula.
  5. Pour oat mixture into the baking dish and spread evenly.
  6. Bake in the oven at 375 F for 35-40 minutes or until most of the liquid has been absorbed and the top is a golden brown.
  7. Serve with a light drizzle of maple syrup over the top and add a dollop of vanilla yogurt.


For additional flavor, try toasting the pecans on a baking sheet in the oven for 4-5 minutes at 375 degrees. This is a perfect dish to make on Sundays and reheat for an easy breakfast during the week.
