Baked cranberry oatmeal makes for a great healthy start to your day. This easy to make delicious breakfast is naturally sweetened and can be made ahead too!
With Christmas just around the corner I though we could start off this years Christmas recipes with this excellent baked cranberry oatmeal!
This is a quick to make baked oatmeal breakfast with a delicious sweet taste and a fantastic aroma of cinnamon.
It’s very similar to my baked apple and cinnamon oats recipe that I posted just over a year ago.
Lady Lynne and I have been enjoying that ever since!
Sometimes it’s wonderful to just wake up to the delicious amazing aroma of a baked oatmeal breakfast.
It makes you forget all about the nasty weather outside and just concentrate on all thats good!
It’s great for Christmas but as it’s made with dried cranberries it can be made all year round too.
I don’t know about you but I often find fresh cranberries difficult to get at any other time. So I stuck with dried canberries, although you could of course use fresh cranberries!
The inspiration for this baked oatmeal breakfast came about when I was searching for a festive baked cranberry Christmas breakfast.
I couldn’t find one easy enough to make on Google so I decided to make up my own.
My recipes are always as simple as possible.
Please feel free to add any extra ingredients you might like such as some nuts or seeds into the bake to give it an added crunch.
If you do, then why not comment below so as to help other people with some variations on my original recipe? It’s always appreciated!
