Pumpkin, Cranberry & Apple Baked Oatmeal

Pumpkin, Cranberry & Apple Baked Oatmeal

I love baked oatmeal. It’s such a hearty, filling breakfast and it’s so versatile. The possibilities for tasty toppings and fillings are endless, but the combination of pumpkin, dried cranberries and apples was so perfect and comforting for Fall. The Autumn flavors blended perfectly and a serving for breakfast kept me full all morning. If you try this Pumpkin, Cranberry & Apple Baked Oatmeal and love it (or if this flavor combination just isn’t up your alley), make sure you also try my Baked Blueberry Peach Oatmeal! I eat my baked oatmeal plain but a lot of people like it with some warm milk poured over the top, which makes it extra moist. However you prefer to serve it, this is a perfect set of flavors for Fall and you can bake it once and have breakfast all week! (Plus it will make your kitchen smell incredible while it’s baking)
