Cherry-Almond Oatmeal

The whole family loves steel-cut oatmeal, even my husband, for whom it was a bit of an acquired taste.  This is my own recipe, combining anti-inflammatory cherries, healthy coconut oil, and almonds.  Enjoy! (My apologies for the quantity, but that’s how we cook in this big family!)

  • 3 cups steel-cut oats
  • 12 cups water
  • 1 cup tart red cherries
  • 3/4 cup coconut oil
  • 1 cup slivered almonds
  • 1 cup sugar
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 teaspoons vanilla extract

Combine the oats and water in a large pot and bring to a near boil over high heat.  Reduce heat to simmer and cook for 45-60 minutes, until oats are done.  Add remaining ingredients and stir thoroughly.
