Original recipe makes 4



1. Preheat oven to 400F. Coat a large baking sheet with cooking spray.

2. In a large bowl, combine crabmeat, 2 tablespoons of the oats, cranberries, mayonnaise, mustard and 1 teaspoon of Creole seasoning. Mix gently to combine, being careful not to break up crabmeat. In a shallow dish, stir remaining oats and seasoning together with a fork.

3. Shape crab mixture into 4 equal-size patties, about 1 inch thick. Transfer crab cakes to oat/spice mixture and turn to coat both sides. Place crab cakes on prepared baking sheet and spray the tops and sides with cooking spray. Bake 15 minutes, until crab cakes are golden brown and firm to the touch. Serve immediately.
