Pumpkin, Cranberry and Apple Baked Oatmeal

I want, no, I NEED to make this. It sounds so fall-ish. Got this from Emily Bites, who got it from My Kitchen Addiction who got it from Two Peas and their Pod.

2 c old-fashioned oats
1/3 c wheat germ
1/3 c packed brown sugar
1 t cinnamon
¼ t salt
1 t baking powder
½ c dried cranberries
1 ½ c skim milk
½ c canned pumpkin
1 ½ T unsalted butter, melted
1 large egg
1 t vanilla extract
1 c apples, chopped
1/3 c chopped pecans

1. Preheat the oven to 375. Lightly mist a 7 x 11 baking dish with cooking spray and set aside.
2. In a large bowl, combine the oats, wheat germ, brown sugar, cinnamon, salt, baking powder and cranberries and stir to mix. In a separate bowl, stir together the milk, pumpkin, egg and vanilla. Add the wet ingredients and apples to the dry ingredients and stir until thoroughly combined.
3. Pour the mixture into the prepared baking dish and spread evenly. Sprinkle the pecans over the top and bake for 20 minutes until top is golden. Slice into eight pieces and serve.

Yields 8 servings. WW P+: 6 per serving
