Cherry Cocoa Oatmeal

Cherry Cocoa Oatmeal

(1 serving)    Printable Version
  • 9 cherries - pitted with stems removed then sliced in half
  • 1/2 cup oats (I use Old Fashioned rolled oats)
  • 1 cup water
  • 1 Tablespoon cocoa
  • 1/8 teaspoon almond extract
  • 1/2 cup vanilla yogurt
Heat water to a boil on medium high heat. When water reaches a boil, turn down to medium low and while gently stirring in the oats and cocoa. Stir, and add the cherries. Cover but continue to stir every now and again so oats do not stick to the bottom. Let oats cook for about five minutes- I usually allow the oats to soak up most of the water. When most of the water has been absorbed, remove from heat and keep covered for five minutes. After five minutes or so, stir in yogurt and almond extract and serve in a bowl.

Other options with this recipe include: use 1 cup milk instead of water and yogurt. Add the almond extract earlier (I seem to add it at a different time each time I make this recipe). Use mace or nutmeg in place of almond extract but definitely add it with the oats. The opportunities of tastes are endless with a good repertoire of spices and a tasteful imagination.

Enjoy!


I'm still in the experimental mode for this oatmeal, so it varies each time I cook it. All I know is that it combines a lot of my favorite flavors, and it has not gone wrong yet.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank gwebb for this recipe.
