There is something about the holidays that gives me an extra dose of patience. I love baking with my kids, but sometimes the extra mess is just flat out daunting. During the holidays however every recipe that is made, my children are involved. We just absolutely love dancing around to Christmas music and bringing ingredients together to create a magical recipe to share with our friends and family. The mess just doesn't seem to bother me as much because the memories that we are creating are worth so much more. Not only did the kids love making these quick rolled oat Mini Cranberry Crumbles, but they were simple and easy too...meaning quick clean up!
When I was growing up I would spend a week making Italian cookies with my grandfather. My grandmother would always sit and watch, claiming that she was not a baker and that she preferred the clean up. Perhaps she wasn't a cookie baker but she defiantly could make a mean crumble. Some of my favorite food memories are her recipes. It think it was the simplicity in the foods that she made that made them comfort food. Still to this day she says she hates cooking and never enjoyed it.
When I saw this adorably packaged canister of Quaker Oats, available at Target, I knew exactly what we were going to make. The kids and I had a wonderful making these and threw them together in less that 5 minutes, with very little clean up!
These are great little simple desserts perfect for movie nights, dinner parties or even Holiday meals!!!! Make sure to print out this coupon for your Quaker Oats! Visit Quaker Oat's Facebook and Pinterest for more great recipes!
