Cranberry Apple Pecan Baked Oatmeal

Yum, yum, and yum!!!

If you haven’t tried baked oatmeal before, you are seriously missing out!

I don’t know why I haven’t experimented more with baked oatmeal in the past, but watch out family!! I see a knew obsession on the horizon!

Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfast options because you can make it at the beginning of the week and have a delicious breakfast available all week long. All you have to do is reheat and enjoy!

(Additionally, I am NOT a morning person! So anything that makes those early hours a little more stress-free is a huge win!)

This oatmeal is mildly sweet with bursts of tart cranberries. Throw in some apples, pecans, and cinnamon and you have yourself a filling breakfast perfect for the holidays.
