Things are getting desperate around here. I’ve busted into the frozen cranberries for baking.
Just kidding! I’ve been meaning to use these Christmas leftovers for a while now, and trying to limit grocery runs is forcing me to be creative.
It turns out they’re really good in these baked oats (I usually use blueberries). Substitute whatever nuts or seeds you have on hand. Good topped with berries and/or yogurt.
Ideally, you mix the wet ingredients in one bowl and the dry in another before combining them. I have to admit that yesterday I got up early and wanted to make this without much fuss, so I just dumped all of the ingredients into a baking dish and mixed well. Fewer dishes to clean, but perhaps not optimal. You can end up with poorly mixed ingredients doing it that way.
Do as I say, not as I do! 😉
