How to make this apple cereal breakfast

This fuss-free breakfast recipe with apples, oats, and cranberries is super quick, it is very yummy and if it looks complicated to you let me tell you it is not. Not at all. It only requires gathering a few ingredients, mixing them, adding them to an oven-proof dish, and baking it whilst getting ready for work. It is this easy, I told you!
I do love rum flavor and this could be because my mum always used it quite a bit in her apple desserts, especially apple pancakes.
- In terms of fruits, you may add some peaches, pineapple, plums, rhubarb, and apricots;
- flavors - I have added rum but vanilla, coconut, nutmeg, 5 spice, or cardamom are a fab addition
- you may add toppings like any homemade coulis, caramelized fruits like apple, pineapple, or why not add a drizzle of caramel sauce if you're feeling extra naughty
- add extra nuts like pecan nuts, chopped hazelnuts or a mixture of nuts and seeds;
Cut into portions (slices or squares) and store in an airtight container -refrigerated- for up to 4 days.
Yes, it can be reheated, whatever amount you wish to eat and the remaining keep refrigerated in an airtight container.
I have not tried it to be very honest as this apple bake never lasts for more than a few hours but I guess it will freeze well and you could reheat it in a pan or oven tray until it is properly hot.
