Cranberry Orange Almond Oatmeal

My kids could eat oatmeal every morning for breakfast as well as lunch and dinner. When I was on Joythebaker.com I noticed a post for Cranberry Orange Almond Oatmeal and decided to give it a whirl. I think it was a little too gourmet for the kids. They did not like the orange peel. But I found it satisfying and delicious. A wonderful start to my day.

The recipe calls to cook half the cranberries, and add the zest and almonds before serving. I did not notice that part when I threw everything in the pot to simmer with the oats.

1 cup water
pinch of salt
1/2 cup old fashioned oats
2 Tablespoons dried cranberries
6 raw or toasted almonds
1/2 teaspoon grated orange zest

optional:
1 Tablespoon brown sugar
1/4 cup milk

Bring water and salt to a rolling boil in a small sauce pan. Add oats and reduce to medium heat and cook for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add 1 Tablespoon of dried cranberries into the cooking oatmeal.

After 5 minutes, remove from heat, and transfer to a serving bowl. Sprinkle with remaining cranberries, orange zest, almonds, brown sugar and milk. Enjoy!
