It all started with crazy sock day.
This is the baked oatmeal recipe that was supposed to be Cherry almond oatmeal, but turned out instead to be cherry juice infused cranberry almond oatmeal.
I know, the horror, right? A supposed “real food blogger” using cherry juice infused cranberries?!?
Well, it all started when I procrastinated making my recipe for the secret recipe club and then I also needed to take the little guy to the store to buy some socks for crazy sock day at school the following day.
Well, in our rush to grab cherries, we got sidetracked by crazy socks and by valentines that could be folded into paper airplanes. Because those just rock a 6 year old’s world. What is better than getting 32 paper airplane valentines when there are only 17 kids in your class and you are left to make 15 airplanes for yourself to scatter all around your house?!
So in my defense that is why I used cherry juice infused cranberries. Because they had CHERRY written on the front in big letters and I just grabbed the bag and when I got home and realized it., I was not making another trip to the store so we can just pretend these are cherries and I didn’t commit a real food crime, K?
I found this recipe at Singer’s Kitchen. Noelle is a vegan who loves to cook and sing opera. Her blueberry oatmeal smoothie and cherry almond oatmeal both looked so tasty. But, since it is winter and this would be my 4th month doing oatmeal for the secret recipe club, I just had to go with the cherry almond oatmeal.
Now, lets get down to the business of how to make this tasty, healthy breakfast. First measure out 2 cups of oats.
