Chocolate Cherry Oatmeal

I LOVE dried cherries, so I incorporated them in my breakfast this morning.

3/4 cup water
1/3 cup old fashioned oats
1 splenda packet
a few drips of almond extract
small sprinkle of allspice
20g (1/8 cup) dried cherries, cut in half
7g mini semisweet morsels

Bring water and spices to a boil. Add oats and cherries. Cook til done. Top with chocolate chips.

  3. Terrific idea! We love raisins and chopped fresh apples in our time I see a bag of dried cherries, you can be sure I'll be trying this...cause I am an oatmeal LOVER!
