I love fresh cherries.  I think cherries are probably one of my favorite fruits.  As soon as cherries are in season, I seem to find a use for them in almost every meal.  This morning, they found their way into a breakfast oatmeal recipe.  This Cherry Vanilla Oatmeal with Almonds is a quick, easy, healthy, protein packed breakfast recipe that is one of my favorites! 


Ingredients for Cherry Vanilla Oatmeal with Almonds
1/2 c. Quick Cooking Oats
1 c. Vanilla Almond Milk
1 tsp. Vanilla
1/2 tsp. Ground Cinnamon
1/2 c. Sliced, Fresh Cherries
2 Tbsp. Chopped Almonds
Honey, Stevia In The Raw or Agave , if desired

Instructions for Cherry Vanilla Oatmeal with Almonds
***Quick Cooking Oats are easy to prepare either in the microwave or on the stovetop.  I tend to make oatmeal on the stove because I forget to pay attention to it in the microwave...and it poufs over the bowl and I have a 20 minutes mess to clean up!


Stove Top Method..In a small saucepan, bring the almond milk to a light boil over medium heat.  Add the oats, stir, reduce heat and cook 2-5 minutes--or until desired oatmeal consistency is reached.  I prefer my oatmeal thick--so, I almost always cook it for several minutes.  Remove the oatmeal from the stove and spoon into a serving bowl.  Stir in the sweetener, if desired, and then top with sliced cherries and chopped almonds

Microwave Method.  If you are using the microwave, simply combine the oats and the almond milk into a microwave safe bowl, cover with a paper towel, and microwave on high for 3-5 minutes--or until oatmeal reaches the desired consistency.  Remove the oatmeal from the microwave carefully as the serving bowl will be hot.   Stir in the sweetener, if desired, and then then top with sliced cherries and chopped almonds.

Serve warm.


Enjoy!
