1 1/2 cups organic old-fashioned oats
3 cups whole milk
6 tablespoons brown sugar (or Sucanat, Rapadura, or Coconut Crystals)
1 1/2 tablespoons butter
2 teaspoons cinnamon
1 1/2 cups finely chopped apples
3/4 cup unsweetened dried cranberries
3/4 cups coarsely chopped walnuts and/or pecans
Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
Coat square 9x9 pan with butter.
In a large saucepan, bring the milk, brown sugar, butter & cinnamon to a boil.
Concurrently, in a large mixing bowl, mix together the oats, apples, cranberries & nuts, and spread evenly into the pan.
When the milk begins to boil, pour evenly over the oatmeal mixture.
Bake uncovered for 30-35 minutes or until liquid has been absorbed and oatmeal is tender.
