Prep Time 20minutes
Cook Time 35minutes

small sauce pan
1cupalmond milkunsweetened, or cashew milk or skim
1.5cupsold fashioned oats
Preheat the oven to 375F.
Pour the cranberries into the small sauce pan with the sugar, the cinnamon, and the vanilla extract, and turn the heat on to medium.
Combine the corn starch with another tablespoon of water to form a slurry, then add it to the berries.
Cook the cranberries for 10 minutes, or until they are broken down into a compote-jam texture. Set aside.
Spray a small baking dish or casserole with cooking spray. I used an 8.5" x 11" 2.5qt casserole dish for this.
Add the bananas to the bottom of a mixing bowl, and mash them with a fork.
Add the applesauce, maple syrup, baking powder, salt, cinnamon, cloves, and extract and stir to combine.
Add the milk. Whisk together.
Add the oats. Fold in.
Pour the mixture evenly into the baking dish.
Add the cranberry topping to the top of the oatmeal, in an even layer.
Top with the pecans.
Bake at 375 for 35-40 minutes or until set up.
Allow this bake to sit and cool for about 10 minutes until cutting, this will allow it to firm up.
