Jelly Toast

What's This?
Serving size 8

Fighting my lazy morning ways, I decided that I would try my hand at my own version of baked oatmeal. For me to love oatmeal, it needs to be packed full of fruit. And some sweet stuff. I am still overloaded with frozen cranberries from the holidays, so throwing some of them in was a no-brainer and the apples came as a natural next step. The whole thing gets sweetened with brown sugar and a bit of cinnamon. I even threw in some ground flax seeds for added nutrition and fiber. Healthy of me, huh?

This cranberry apple cinnamon oatmeal turned out crazy delicious and off-the-charts comforting. At least compared to my cold cereal, but really it wasn't even a competition. Plus, the leftovers were fantastic the next day. Reheat a serving of the oatmeal and add a splash of milk and a drizzle of maple syrup and you won't believe you're eating leftovers.
