This post is sponsored by Bob’s Red Mill. As always all opinions and thoughts are 100% my own. 

I have made love for all things breakfast right now.

In fact, the other day I made breakfast for dinner 2 different times.

I’m so lucky my husband is literally the easiest going person in the history of husbands.

PLUS baked oatmeal is such a hearty meal (in the morning OR evening) that keeps you full for hours.

Even if I am guilty of eating this for dinner it reheats perfectly for breakfast.

All I do is scoop it into a bowl, add a few tablespoons of milk over top, reheat in the microwave, and BOOM breakfast.

HELLO make-ahead breakfast!

Of course, when it comes to oats you all KNOW I’m obsessed with Bob’s Red Mill so I used their gluten free rolled oats.

This means not only does baked oatmeal make an amazing breakfast it’s also gluten-free.

That means all you gluten-free lovers out there can rejoice!

Oh and all you maple syrup lovers can also rejoice because this baby is drizzzzzzzzzzzled with that golden nectar.

I mean I guess you could skip the final drizzle but don’t.

It’s amazing.

Now, this oatmeal is not overly sweet because I actually don’t like super sweet oatmeal BUT feel free to add a little sugar to the mix if you want.

BUT those sweet little bananas at the bottom will add a little boost of sweetness.

Ohhhhhhhh and this is such a great use for fresh cranberries.

No need to just use them for cranberry sauce.

Folks spread the cranberry love.

Ok, now get into the kitchen and go make this baked cranberry oatmeal.

You will 100% love it.

I’m 100% sure of that!

Delish! The bananas on the bottom added a little sweetness that I liked. I've made it a few times now - with fresh cranberries, then with left over cranberry sauce (just as good!). Now with cranberries out of season and plenty of winter left, I'll try with craisins! Love me some cranberries in any form! Also, warmed up nicely, especially in a toaster oven to get it more crispy around the edges.

I have made this twice now and LOVE it! I use just a touch less maple syrup. Don't mind the tart cranberries. The bananas help to sweeten it.

Just made this and it's terrific! Great way to use up cranberries that isn't for sauce!
