I eat oatmeal everyday and if you read my blog, you will see that I am constantly trying to come up with creative ways of eating oatmeal for breakfast. Usually I bake my oatmeal with fruits and nuts; sometimes in a large baking dish like my Baked Oatmeal with Walnuts and Figs recipe, or in muffin tins/ mini bundt pans like Marmalade Muffins, Blueberry-almond oatmeal muffins or Lemon, rosemary and olive-oil cakes. It is all about fooling the mind and making it appear as if I were eating dessert for breakfast. However, when I don’t have time to “bake” my oatmeal ahead of time, I will eat it in its traditional porridge form. Even then, I try to jazz it up, just to cheer myself and start the day off right. After all, Mom was right, breakfast is the most important meal of the day!
Featured here is my Cherry Almond Oatmeal. Cook the oatmeal as directed and thin it out with almond milk and honey. Add sliced almonds and chopped cherries, and enjoy ! Make your Monday morning a little more exciting!
