Recipe For Black Forest Oatmeal


It’s Eating the Alphabet time and we are on letters C and D this month. I chose cherries. I had cranberries in the freezer and really was leaning toward making something with them, I even thought of using cantaloupe. Cherries seemed too safe and boring. However, you probably haven’t seen them like this before. I have had oatmeal on my brain for the last month. That naturally evolved into today’s breakfast: Black Forest Oatmeal. You can see the progression, right?

This is totally good for you, too. So don’t feel guilty whipping up a bowl of chocolate for breakfast!
