“As far back as I can remember, I always wanted to be a gangster” I love that movie. Ray Liotta is nuts, plus I have this crazy obsession with mob movies. Okay but seriously, as far back as I can remember, my mom has been making us oatmeal. She always made it every morning for us before school, alternating with cream of wheat.
It was always the same milk and brown sugar..don’t get me wrong, I still love it that way and Im beyond grateful that I wasn’t left with cold cereal everyday, although now thats one of my favorite snacks, but sometimes, variety is the spice of life!
I love this Apple-Cranberry Oatmeal Bake. It’s wonderful served hot with milk or it doubles as granola and is great over yogurt. It is perfectly sweet, slightly crunchy, and is bursting with cinnamon, soft apples, and fresh, tart cranberries.
The day I made this, my mom came over and we took the boys for a walk. When we got back, she served herself a small bowl and went back for seconds (& thirds!) proclaiming how good it is! I drizzles a little bit of maple syrup over mine for added sweetness, but she loved it perfectly as is!
This oatmeal bake can be prepared the night before and just popped in the oven when you wake up! It’s perfect for when you know you’re going to have company or if you just want to enjoy a lazy weekend morning! Give this one a try, you won’t be disappointed!
