Banana Cherry Oatmeal and a Suspected Oatmeal Thief

First morning back home from our little vacay in Kiawah and I couldn't wait to have my morning oatmeal! Today it's bananas, dried cherries, pepitas and almonds. Mashing up a banana into oatmeal adds sweetness without having to use other sweeteners. Fruit is nature's sugar - take advantage of it. My friend Riley here would if you let her...

Using my Basic Oats recipe, replace the raisins with dried cherries and mash up a banana while it's cooking. Top it off with almonds and pepitas. 

Add a nice hot cup of home-brewed joe and you've got yourself one happy Ashley :)

Have a Spectacular Friday!
