In a large mixing bowl, stir together oatmeal, sugar, baking powder, cinnamon, nutmeg, cloves, ginger, and salt.
In a separate bowl, combine applesauce, milk, vanilla, and eggs.
Stir applesauce mixture into the oat mixture. Fold in apple chips and cranberries (if using).
Transfer to a greased cast iron pan or 9x13 cake pan. (I like to grease the pan with coconut oil or butter).
Bake at 350* for 35 minutes or until the oatmeal is set.
