Gingerbread Baked Oatmeal

What could be more perfect for this time of year but a warm bowl of gingerbread baked oatmeal? 

This stuff is fantastic, and festive all at the same time.

While it’s baking, you’ll think you’re making a batch of molasses crinkles.  Take one bite, and you’ll think that you’re eating one.
