Pumpkin Cranberry Raspberry Oatmeal

This pumpkin cranberry raspberry oatmeal is perfect for a fall breakfast, decorative pumpkins not required. #bakedoatmeal #pumpkin #cranberry #raspberry #breakfast

i was going to mention how good things come in three’s, talk about my weird compulsion to reference the 3 oldest kardashians (despite my disinterest in them), then finally get around to talking about how this is my third year participating in sara ‘s / cake over steak’s virtual pumpkin party. but seeing how it’s actually my second year doing this, i now feel inclined to talk about sophomore hits. 22 jump street was better than 21. paramore’s riot! was much more of a success than all we know is falling ever was. so is this pumpkin cranberry raspberry oatmeal better than last year’s waffles with spiced pumpkin butter and walnut brown sugar crumble? maybe. though i’d like to be a fair parent and say that they’re both good in different ways and there’s no possible way that i could pick between two very different recipes.

if you’re not in normal oatmeal bc you are a texture fiend and cannot deal with that gluey, gummy mess (wow that’s me!!!), then baked oatmeal is perfect. it’s more dense and dry and you could stab it with a fork and lift it up if you really wanted to. i  definitely ate this pumpkin cranberry raspberry oatmeal using a fork (i couldn’t seem to find a spoon) last week. and in another unstereotypical oatmeal move, this one’s on the tart side with the raspberries and cranberries. i’m trying to eat less sugar, but be my guest and add more brown sugar/maple syrup or sub in sweet fruit if that’s more your style.

This pumpkin cranberry raspberry oatmeal is delicious plain, but I like to serve it with milk and some nuts or seeds. #bakedoatmeal #pumpkin #cranberry #raspberry #breakfast

Calories 185 kcal


  • 2 cups rolled oats
  • 1/4 tsp kosher salt
  • 2 tsp baking powder
  • 1/4 cup brown sugar depending on taste
  • 2 eggs
  • 3/4 cup pumpkin puree
  • 1 cup milk
  • 1 tsp vanilla extract
  • 2 cups frozen raspberries
  • 1/2 cup dried cranberries
  • 1/4 cup cranberry sauce optional*
  • fresh raspberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds, milk, etc for serving


  1. Mix the dry ingredients.
  2. Mix the wet ingredients. Mix into the dry ingredients. Fold in the raspberries and cranberries.

  3. Pour into a greased 9” round or 8x8” pan. Evenly spread mixture around the pan and press the fruit down so that they aren’t sticking out. Dollop the cranberry sauce on top of the oatmeal, and use a knife to swirl it into the oatmeal.

  4. Bake at 350F for 40 minutes or until center feels firm and edges have browned, or until a knife inserted into the center of oatmeal comes out clean. Cool slightly before serving with raspberries, almonds, pumpkin seeds, milk, or whatever you want with it.

Recipe Notes

Adapted from The Roasted Root. The cranberry sauce is optional, but I like the extra color and cranberry-ness it adds. You can buy it from a store, but I prefer cooking down some fresh or frozen cranberries with some sugar and water until the berries have popped and the liquid has thickened. Calorie information does not include toppings or serving suggestion.

  1. I love oatmeal (even the glueiness!!) but have never had baked oatmeal. I totally need to try this! 😚

  2. I’m totally a ‘things happen in 3’s’! My mom has always said that! I like these 3’s way more than the Kardashians! Looks so comforting, I need this now!! 😀

  3. I love oatmeal pretty much any way I can get it! I’ll take it gluey and gummy or baked and stab-able 🙂 This sounds delicious, Heather!

  4. I don’t think I give oatmeal much of the credit that it deserves. I mean, when you think about it, a single bowl of oatmeal can really carry you to the next meal. That being said I don’t think eat it much simply because of the texture and I’m too lazy to make it myself. But if I would, your version would be the one I go with for sure!

  5. I love the idea of baked oatmeal because it kind of feels like you’re getting a cookie (or “granola bar” if we want to sound healthier) for breakfast. And who doesn’t want that? And to have a nice pan of it for several days sounds like a tremendous idea! But I’ll eat oatmeal any way I can get it. This one looks a-maz-ing!

  6. I’ll take oatmeal in any form! A little sad I forgot to join this year’s pumpkin party 🙁

  7. I love oatmeal in any form. I’m on a role trying pumpkin recipes and this is going down on my list:)

  8. Ohmygosh YES! I like oatmeal and have a few recipes for it, but most days I am NOT down with the gooey, gluey thing. My boyfriend, on the other hand, loves it. But I don’t think he’s ever had baked oatmeal, so I think I’ll make a convert out of him 😉

  9. I LOVE baked oatmeal and I never think to use cranberries, so thanks for the inspiration!! This is perfect for a pumpkin pot-luck. Oh, and I totally agree – 22 Jump Street was definitely better 😉

  10. I need to buy some rolled oats, and make some pumpkin puree as we cannot buy that here, to try this recipe 🙂

  11. Oh yum! Baked oatmeal is so comforting in the autumn months. And bonus, you used up the cranberry sauce! After a turkey dinner I can never figure out what to do with it.
    Hooray for the #virtualpumpkinparty!

  12. I personally love oatmeal, baked or otherwise. This sounds like a magical combo!!

  13. Ooo I love baked oatmeal!! Pumpkin + Cranberry + Raspberry is a wonderful combination, especially for fall!! 🙂

  14. Yummy! This is an awesome breakfast recipe, Heather! Can’t wait to give it a try!

  15. I love berries in my oatmeal..And I totally need to try the berries with the pumpkin! Sounds lovely for fall! I will add a bit of cinnamon to it too :).

  16. Interesting! I’ve made baked oatmeal a couple of times, but I love how you serve it with milk instead of straight-up. Also, I love the berries in here! Cranberries just scream Fall to me, and this would be a great breakfast for the holidays…say maybe on Thanksgiving morning? While listening to Paramore? 🙂

  17. Omg, I can’t stand gloopy gummy oatmeal either – so gross! I am thinking that this baked oatmeal would indeed be the way to get me to try oatmeal again (I always thought it was a lost cause). This recipe has everything I love jam packed right into it, so I’m pretty sure it’s my perfect match! Thanks for an awesome new breakfast idea Heather 😀

    Also, I agree that 22 Jump Street was better than 21 (although I freakin love both).

  18. This oatmeal looks delicious! I don’t normally eat baked oatmeal (I don’t mind eating it gloopy), but I should bake it next time. Great fall flavours too!

  19. This looks so good! I usually go for eggs in the morning but Have been on an oatmeal kick lately.

  20. WHOA BABY! THAT is one hunky oatmeal bar!!

  21. What a thorough recipe and directions! I’ve never tried baked oatmeal, but this sounds delicious. I’ll give this a try next time I bake!

  22. Okay, I’m feeling a bit old. I have not seen either of the Jump Streets and the only reason I know Paramore is because they used to be my daughter’s favorite group for a while. I also do know that I need to try baked oatmeal. This version with pumpkin, cranberries, and raspberries sounds delicious!

  23. This looks heavenly and I want to eat it NOW! Perfect for fall!!! <3 – http://www.domesticgeekgirl.com

  24. Hello, Heather.

    Yes. Finally! We share the same opinion for the normal oatmeal. Haha.This looks so yummy and healthy too. This definitely is a good breakfast. Great recipe, Heather. I will try this very soon.

  25. This is a great idea for using pumpkin, the sound so full of autumn flavours.

  26. Hey, Heather!
    I like the crispiness of baked oatmeal, so this is definitely a recipe for me to try!

  27. The Kardashians are one big train wreck. LOL! Baked oatmeal is one of my favorite breakfasts and I’m always looking for a new recipe. Pinned yours so I can make it on the weekend for brunch. Love the flavors you used and I’m going to top mine with toasted pumpkin seeds 🙂

  28. alas, I do not enjoy oatmeal at all… though it looks somewhat interesting, I have to say.
    Kardashians, ugh…


  29. GRRRRL we are on the same wavelength about oatmeal texture. Love this recipe, both for the superior texture and the lovely flavors!

  30. I am definitely one of those who cannot deal with the gummy mess. Baked oatmeal is the thing for me and I love this. All of fall’s awesome flavors in a little breakfast bowl. Awesome!

  31. Hi Heather, thanks for the great inspiration! I love regular oatmeal but will definitely give this a try to switch things up a bit!

  32. I want all of that… in my mouth. STAT! I adore oatmeal so this recipe is right up my alley!! I can’t wait to try it. Great job 🙂 🙂 🙂

  33. Love baked oatmeal and this has put me right in the mood for some, perfect Fall flavours 🙂

  34. I’ve never tried doing this before! Totally going to give it a go! Looks delicious 🙂


  35. Yup. I’m totally digging your way of eating oatmeal by stabbing with a fork. Such an interesting concept haha 😀 My breakfast normally consists of a black coffee but gah you’re making me want to have breakfast! What is this voodoo you’re doing? haha 😀

  36. I’m definitely a baked oatmeal girl!!! I love that it’s almost like cake for breakfast. Thanks for sharing this!
