Baked Oatmeal


Today I'd like to share a recipe for low fat baked oatmeal.

I know..the words low fat and oatmeal aren't very exciting...but this was really good!

I've never had baked oatmeal before but I've seen  many recipes for it. I have several copied down, and finally made this one last weekend for breakfast.

I'm glad I tried it! It was delicious. Every bite was full of tender baked apples and cranberries, with cinnamon and maple syrup. I drizzled alittle bit more maple syrup on top of Brent's..he doesn't even like oatmeal..but he liked it this way!

Another bonus...one whole cup was only 224 calories, 2 fat, and 4 fiber!
