Pumpkin Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal

2 cups old-fashioned oats
1/3 cup wheat germ
1/3 cup packed brown sugar
2 tsp. cinnamon
1/4 tsp. salt
1 tsp. baking powder
1/2 cup dried cranberries
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 cup canned pumpkin
1 egg, beaten
1 tsp. vanilla extract
1 medium apple, peeled and chopped
1/2 cup chopped pecans (or other nuts), divided
warm milk and brown sugar for serving

Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray an 8x8 baking dish with cooking spray. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, egg, pumpkin, milk, and vanilla.

Add the oats, wheat germ, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder, and mix well. Fold in the cranberries, apples, and half of the nuts. Pour into prepared baking dish and top with the rest of the nuts. Bake at 375 F for about 20 minutes.

Let it cool for about 10 minutes before cutting. It will be soft-set (not firm like oatmeal bars). Cut into 6 pieces. Top with warm milk and brown sugar.
