Baked Cranberry Coconut Oatmeal Recipe

Baked Cranberry Coconut Oatmeal Recipe

2014 is the year I am attempting to get my family on board with healthy eating. It hasn’t been easy so I continue to try. Oatmeal is a breakfast food my daughter enjoys, my son…not so much. He say’s it is too “mushy” and “blah”. He’s crazy because my oatmeal is never blah, he just refuses to give it a try.

So, in my quest to get my oldest to like oatmeal, I’ve started to bake it, so it is more like an oatmeal bar, not a bowl of mush. I want them to eat a filling bowl of oatmeal, as it is an easy way to incorporate more fiber in their diets and is a healthy whole grain that warms the body during the cold winter months.

I knew when creating this cranberry coconut baked oatmeal my son would turn his nose up to it, so I didn’t tell him about the coconut. It isn’t that evident in this recipe but mixes well with the flavors. He took a few bites and said it was good but still not his thing. Oh well, my six year old ate it and loved every single bite!
