Cranberry Orange Baked Oatmeal
The cranberry orange combination is one of my favorites, and I wanted to do something different with it this year. I make a quick bread with these flavors, but this was the first year I made this baked oatmeal recipe.
The first time I made it, there wasn’t enough orange flavor, so I had the idea to add a glaze with plenty of fresh orange juice and zest. It was the perfect solution. 🙂
The cream cheese adds a nice creaminess and tang, and gives the glaze it’s wow factor. I love how festive it makes this baked oatmeal looks.
Who needs cinnamon rolls on Christmas morning with this around??
I always have fresh cranberries in my freezer this time of year because I love baking with them, as well as making cranberry sauce often.
I didn’t even thaw the cranberries out for this cranberry orange baked oatmeal recipe. I just popped half in the bottom of the baking dish and half on top — no chopping required.
You can put this recipe together in about 10-15 minutes tops, which means you get a delicious, wholesome breakfast that doesn’t get much easier.
If you’d like to set things up ahead, follow the instructions in my Overnight Blueberry Baked Oatmeal Crisp by placing it in the fridge overnight and baking it in the morning.
Healthy, festive, and bursting with flavor, this Cranberry Orange Baked Oatmeal is an easy breakfast or brunch item that’s perfect for your holidays!
