Cherry Vanilla Steel Cut Oats

Almost every week lately I have been making a big batch of Steel Cut Oats to have for breakfast every morning. I have been getting a little tired of my usual apple craison combination. I saw this recipe on Apple A Day and used it for my inspiration. Of course I had to have a little sample this afternoon and it was great! Good fuel for my workout classes tonight!

Cherry Vanilla Steel Cut Oats
Recipe inspired by from Apple A Day

Makes approx 4 cups of oatmeal

4 cups water
1 cup steel cut oats
1/2 cup dried cherries
1 tsp vanilla extract
2 tbs ground cinnamon
1 tsp nutmeg
Splash milk per serving
1 tsp Rhubarb Strawberry preserves per serving


Bring water to a boil. Stir in oats and cherries. Reduce heat to low and simmer,stirring often. After about 20 minutes (and oatmeal starting to come together), stir in cinnamon, nutmeg and vanilla. Continue to simmer until water is absorbed, approx 30 minutes total.

When serving, add a splash of milk and stir in Tastefully Simple Rhubarb Strawberry preserves.
