Baked Cranberry Orange Oatmeal
2 cups quick cooking oats
1/2 cup brown sugar
1 teaspoon cinnamon
1/4 teaspoon salt
2 cups milk
1 cup water
1/2 cup orange juice
Zest from one orange
2 tablespoons butter, melted
1 teaspoon vanilla extract
1 cup fresh or 3/4 cup dried cranberries
1/4 to 1/2 cup walnuts, chopped (optional)
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Lightly coat an 8 x 8 inch baking dish or small casserole dish with non stick cooking spray. In a large bowl, combine the oats, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt.
Stir in the milk, water, orange juice, orange zest, butter, and vanilla until all combined. Fold in cranberries. Pour into prepared pan.
Bake 30 to 35 minutes or until a knife inserted near the center comes out clean. You can serve with extra brown sugar, nuts, a few extra cranberries and milk on top if you like.
Got leftover oatmeal? Extra oatmeal reheats great in the microwave with a little milk or water added.
