Overnight Baked Oatmeal with Fresh Cranberries recipe by Barefeet In The Kitchen

I’ve recently had a lot of fun discovering new ways to use fresh cranberries. In the past, I have simply bought them for our traditional cranberry sauce and left it at that. This year, I already have plans to use them in numerous ways over the next few months. I can hardly wait!

If you haven’t bought fresh cranberries before, it couldn’t be simpler. They stay fresh in the refrigerator for weeks and for at least 6 months or more in the freezer. (I’ve been known to keep them for a year or two in the freezer without any problems!) I just buy them when they go on sale and hang onto them until I’m ready to use them.

This oatmeal was a great combination of mostly sweet oatmeal with a bit of tart from the cranberries. The kids loved it even more than I did. If you like cranberries, you will probably love this combination!

Overnight Baked Oatmeal with Fresh Cranberries

5 from 3 votes
Prep Time: 5 minutes
Cook Time: 40 minutes
Total Time: 45 minutes
Servings: 5 servings


  • 1 cup fresh or frozen cranberries
  • 3 cups old fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/2 cup sugar
  • 2 teaspoons baking powder
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • 1 teaspoon cinnamon
  • 1/4 cup melted butter
  • 3 eggs
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • Optional: 2-3 teaspoons cream or half and half for drizzling over the individual servings as desired


  • Place the cranberries and the dry ingredients in a large bowl and toss to combine. Pour the melted butter over the dry ingredients and stir lightly to coat. Add the eggs and the milk and stir once more.
  • Grease a 7x10 pan (or 9x13 if you want to double the recipe). Pour the oatmeal mixture into the pan and cover with lid or foil. Place in the refrigerator overnight.
  • In the morning, uncover the pan, stir and place in a cold oven. Bake at 350 for 40-45 minutes or until set in the center. Let cool 5-10 minutes before serving.
  • You can serve this sliced or scooped into bowls. I like mine broken up like warm granola in a bowl and my kids prefer to eat theirs like a slice of cake. Enjoy!

    Could I have the nutrition values (including calories) ?
    My mother made your recipe and I absolutely love it ! But since I’m obsessed with calories, I feel bad when I don’t know how many are in a meal ! Anyways, it would be very appreciated if you could answer, thank you ! Have a great day5 stars

      Hi Florence, I’ve updated the recipe card to include nutritional information. It’s figured at 5 servings, so if it was more than that for you and your mom, you’ll want to adjust it appropriately. (You can always copy and paste the ingredient list into one of the online nutritional calculators too!)
