Okay y’all know how much I loveeee baked oatmeal! I’ve been making it since THIS original version a handful of years ago. It’s one of the best grab-and-go breakfast options, and you can make a big batch at the beginning of the week which in my opinion is the most time efficient way to go. I mean, cook once and eat all week?! Sign me up!!

I’ve given the original recipe several different spins (there’s a Chunky Monkey version with dark chocolate and bananas in my Simple Staples ebook HERE), and this go round I wanted to infuse some of those nice fall/winter flavors into it. Enter in cranberries and orange!

Cranberries offer SO much flavor this time of year, especially if you tend to lean towards fresh berries that aren’t always all that fresh in the winter months. Cranberries are a good source of both soluble and insoluble fiber, vitamin C, and are a wonderful source of a powerful antioxidant called quercetin which plays a role in mitigating excessive inflammation and fighting off free radicals that can lead to disease. While you probably don’t eat cranberries raw, they are a delight cooked down into a sauce or jam…or baked right into this Cranberry, Orange and Walnut Baked Oatmeal!

Ingredients for Cranberry, Orange and Walnut Baked Oatmeal

The ingredient list is simple:

  • Oats (I prefer using instant oats for baked oatmeal)
  • Chia seeds
  • Milk of choice
  • Eggs
  • Vanilla extract
  • Coconut oil
  • Cinnamon
  • Sea salt
  • Zest and juice of an orange
  • Cranberries
  • Walnuts

You can eat this baked oatmeal cold, or heated up — your choice! Pour some milk over it, or pair it with some Greek yogurt (hello, protein!) and a dollop of nut butter for a hearty breakfast that will fuel you for the day ahead. Dare I say it would also be a delight with some vanilla ice cream for dessert?!

Prep it ahead of time for an easy weekday breakfast option, or make a big batch to serve for a holiday breakfast or’ll be sure to please everyone at the table!

Pro tips to help you maximize your membership :)

Anticipate obstacles: obstacles are like red lights on the way to the store: an inevitable part of the journey. Anticipate them and don’t let them define your ability or stop you from trying.

Take action: you can absorb all the information and education you want, but that’s not what leads to change — taking ACTION is!! Regardless of the results, taking action helps you gain clarity to continue pressing forward. I know this can bring discomfort, but temporary discomfort is better than longterm discomfort. God is mighty in you — you GOT this! 

Ditch all or nothing thinking: we believe something is better than nothing and ANY effort counts. You don’t have to implement 100% of the content to see change and improvements in your health. Each action you take compounds. 40% effort is better than 0%

Ask questions: if you’re confused, not sure where to start, feeling behind, or just have a question for me or the group, ask it! Someone else probably has the same question, so by speaking up you’re getting the answer and helping someone else do the same.
