Oatmeal...that is. I thought this up the other week and Rebecca and I have enjoyed a few times since.
Cherry Chocolate Almond Oatmeal
3/4 c. oatmeal
1 1/2 c. water
handful of cherry flavored craisins or dried cherries
generous sprinkle of butter toffee glazed Almond Accents
light sprinkling of Ghiradelli 60% cocoa chocolate chips
Cook oatmeal according to directions and add in cherries to cook for about a minute with the oatmeal. Put in bowls top with remaining ingredients, mix and enjoy!
No sugar added, though there is sugar in each of the toppings. About 3g from the chocolate, 1g from the almonds, and it is hard to calculate from the cherries, because they are fruit and therefore are higher in sugar. But it is not the overly sweet oatmeal, like the apples and cinnamon, you buy at the store. This is just slightly sweet and oh so yummy.

Still getting the hang of my Bind-It-All. I made this cute little notebook for Ashley's birthday. The pages inside have stamps and rub-ons and I thought it was so fun to have some different things on the pages. The black and white paper is flocked and feels lovely. The stamp is by JustRite.
