RECIPE: Pumpkin Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal

Pumpkin Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal Recipe

I've had this recipe on my blog for a while, but I back-dated it so that it wouldn't show up on my feed (I didn't want to bombard you all with dozens of recipes in a single day). But since it's finally fall, and it's pumpkin season, I thought I'd re-share it now.

This baked oatmeal combines all the best flavors of fall! Pumpkin, cranberries, apples, pecans, and cinnamon--a delicious combination! I made some tweaks from the original recipe, which can be found at My Kitchen Addiction.

Pumpkin Cranberry Apple Baked Oatmeal


2 cups old-fashioned oats

1/4 cup flaxseed

1/3 cup packed brown sugar

2 tsp. cinnamon

1/4 tsp. salt

1 tsp. baking powder

1/2 cup dried cranberries (or raisins, but the cranberries are the best!)

1-1/2 cups milk (I use whole fat milk)

1/2 cup canned pumpkin

1 Tbsp. melted coconut oil or butter
1 egg, beaten

1 tsp. vanilla extract

1 medium apple, peeled and chopped

1/2 cup chopped pecans, divided
warm milk and brown sugar, for serving


Preheat oven to 375 F. Spray an 8x8 or 9x9 baking dish with cooking spray or grease with a teaspoon or so of oil. In a mixing bowl, combine the brown sugar, egg, pumpkin, milk, oil or butter, and vanilla. Add the oats, flaxseed, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder, and mix well. Fold in the cranberries, apples, and half of the pecans.

Pour into prepared baking dish and top with the rest of the pecans. Bake uncovered at 375 F for about 25 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 each serving with 2 Tbsp. warm milk and 1 tsp. brown sugar.

When made as written in the recipe, 1/6 of the recipe contains 347 calories; for 1/8 of the recipe, it contains 260 calories (without topping with milk and sugar)



  1. Thank you! I'm going to the store today and can't wait to make this. I just started counting calories and feel better. Live quality over quantity ♡.

  2. I made this today and it is so good! Thanks for sharing it 😊
