OAT BRAN WITH CHERRIES & ALMONDS
2 SERVINGS // 15 MINUTES HC R V
- 3 cups water
- 1½ cups oat bran
- pinch of salt
- 2 teaspoons vanilla extract
- 2 teaspoons sugar
- 2 cups fresh or frozen cherries
- 2 tablespoons (½ oz.) almonds, slivered
- milk (optional)
1. In a saucepan, bring water to a boil over medium-high heat. Add oat bran and cook uncovered until the mixture begins to thicken, 5–10 minutes. Stir periodically to keep oat bran from sticking to the pan.
2. While oat bran is cooking, cut each cherry in half and remove pit with a paring knife.
3. Season oat bran with salt, vanilla, and sugar and stir to blend. Remove from heat and divide between two bowls. Top with cherries and almonds and a splash of your favorite milk, if desired.
