I’m a huge breakfast fanatic. I usually go for something hearty, healthy and full of surprise goodies. That’s not to say that I don’t sometimes reach for a donut and some coffee, but this go around I opted for old-fashioned oatmeal with the gorgeous flavors of cranberry, orange and almond. I threw in a bit of brown sugar for good measure, and surrounded my oatmeal with cold milk. It was a delightful breakfast- satisfying but not too heavy. It’s the kind of breakfast that convinces you you’re ready to take on the world. Brilliant
Cranberry Orange Almond Oatmeal
1 cup water
pinch of salt
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
2 Tablespoons dried cranberries
6 raw or toasted almonds
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup milk
Bring water and salt to a rolling boil in a small sauce pan. Add oats and reduce to medium heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 Tablespoon of dried cranberries into the cooking oatmeal.
After 5 minutes, remove from heat, and transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with remaining cranberries, orange zest, almonds, brown sugar and milk. Enjoy!
