I make this often and for groups as large as 30. A few tips, use applesauce in place of butter and egg whites in place of whole to reduce fat. I also add diced granny smith along with the cranberries and sometimes add pecans. Go either/or on the brown sugar/maple syrup, can make it too sweet. One final thing, serve with fat free greek vanilla yogurt..THE BOMB!

I will be giving this one another try! I think I cooked it too long bc it more so turned out as a oatmeal loaf rather than being a creamy yet thick oatmeal like i was expecting. The flavor was still good and went well with out breakfast supper we had.

The family pronounced it delicious, so this recipe is a keeper. I decreased the sugar to 1/2 cup. I love the addition of the maple syrup! You really have to get all natural maple syrup that actually came from the tree. Makes a world of difference. I added wheat germ to get some nutrients in there. :) Nobody notices. (Don't you love being sneaky?) Anyway, thanks for this recipe! It's a delightful way to start your day.

Instead of cranberries, I used raisins. I also increased the amount to a heaping half cup as we REALLY like raisins. This is seriously decadent--like eating dessert for breakfast. EXTREMELY rich. I poured a touch of cold milk over the top of each serving which cut the sweetness a bit. We absolutely LOVED this. NO leftovers.

Delicious! We used apples instead of cranberries but I think both would have been nice or a tart apple. We also skipped the maple syrup and found that the oatmeal was the perfect amount of sweet.

This is a very nice oatmeal prep. My husband described it as an oatmeal cookie in a bowl with milk :) The next time I would cut the sugar and salt in half but otherwise very tasty and an easy make ahead breakfast. Thanks for sharing.

Alright: I have made several baked oatmeals from Allrecipes and up until this one, the one with blueberries was a hit in our home. We just had this for breakfast this morning. I made it with a few common changes in baking: replaced half the butter with applesauce. Lowered the brown sugar to about 1/2 cup, maybe a little less (did not measure). I added an apple and some chopped pecans as someone suggested. I stuck WITH the maple syrup and sued Canadian because well, it is a healthy edulcorant imo. When I mixed it all, it was a bit of a dry-looking mix, so I added one egg, which I had use in other oatmeal recipes. What is outstanding about this is the flavor. With the nuts, maple and cranberries, it is just... old school. Barely sweet, nutty, cinnamoney, and yummy. Hats off, joshllorio :)

This is my favorite recipe and I change it up every time depending on what's in the fridge. Today I added a cup of applesauce and cut the butter to 1T and the milk in half. I also cut the brown sugar in half and didn't miss it. I added apple and banana as well and it was great! I cook it on Sunday morning so I'll have leftovers for the week.
