Healthy, delicious, cheap. It freezes fantastic, but you probably will not get the chance to do that. As a protein powerhouse that travels well, it is ideal for breakfast on the run and for lunch boxes.

  • Mix oats, milk powder, brown sugar, baking soda, cinnamon, salt, and baking powder together in a bowl. Whisk milk, eggs, oil, and vanilla extract together in a separate bowl; stir into oats mixture just until mixed. Fold cranberries into oats mixture; spoon into prepared baking dish.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until oatmeal is set, about 40 minutes.

Cook's Note:

This recipe is easy to change up. Make it healthier by substituting applesauce, pureed prunes, or ground flax for the oil.

DELICIOUS healthy breakfast on-the-go I am really shocked that so few people have tried this! I used olive oil splenda and raisins but otherwise made the recipe as noted putting the batter into a non-stick sprayed glass dish. It made dense oatmeal cookie flavoured bars with a chewy texture and they are pretty much perfect as is. High protein high fibre and satisfying. I may try using only 1/4 cup oil and some applesauce or a banana just to cut the fat a little more but I will definitely make these again! THANKS SO MUCH FOR POSTING! Read More

OK what did I do wrong? I am a very experienced baker and this was so skimpy going into the pan I thought I had misread the pan size. I've got pictures that show how thin as to be almost nonexistent the oatmeal was once I placed it in the pan. I don't know how to add them though. I was very disappointed as it sounded quite good.

Very filling & tasty. Reduced sugar to 1/4 cup subbed chopped dates for cranberries & applesauce for oil. Baked in oval dish for 35 min at 375. Kids loved it - will make again. Read More

We skipped the dry milk powder and cranberries (only because we didn't have these on hand) and added fresh, pureed peaches and toasted pecans. We also substituted 1/2 cup maple syrup for brown sugar. Our guests enjoyed it, and our discerning (read: picky) children requested that we add it to our weekly breakfast rotation. We eat a lot of oatmeal, and we appreciate the added protein and versatility of this recipe. Read More

This is a great recipe! I've made it a few times now. I used mini chocolate chips instead of fruit. It reheats perfectly on busy mornings! Update-10-16-16 this is in our regular breakfast rotation. I use silicone baking cups. My son and I both enjoy this one! Read More

Very nice healthy & simple breakfast choice. I will definitely make it again but I will be sure to spray the pan with nonstick.....it was hard to get the "oatmeal" out of the parchment lined pan. Thanks for sharing! Read More

I'm lactose intolerant so I subbed the dry milk for pea protein powder and the milk for baby food bananas and blueberries. It was delicious! Better than most desserts especially with a little whipped topping! Read More

My husband and I really liked these for fast breakfast to go. I used applesauce in place of the oil and reduced the brown sugar by 1/4 cup. They are healthy and kept me full until lunch. Will definitely make again. Read More
