Oatmeal Treat

I wanted something different for breakfast this morning, but I didn’t want eggs since I’ll be eating a plethora of deviled eggs this afternoon. I concocted this yummy–and healthy–oatmeal, and it was quite satisfying.

Servings: 2 generous

Cooking time: 10 minutes, including time to boil the water


  • 1 cup rolled oats (I’m sure quick-cooking would be fine.)
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/4 cup dried cranberries
  • 2 tbsp dried pineapple
  • 2 tbsp almonds
  • 1 tbsp maple syrup
  1. Put the water on to boil. This gives you time to measure out everything else.
  2. Add the oats and cranberries to the boiling water. Reduce the heat to a simmer. After about three minutes, add the pineapple and almonds. Continue cooking two to three minutes, or until thick. Stir in maple syrup and remove from heat.
  3. Serve in warmed bowls with a cup of coffee.
