Yield: 2 servings


  • 2/3 cup dried Montmorency tart cherries & mixed dried berries (blueberries, strawberries)
  • 2 cups lowfat milk (1% for nutrition analysis)
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1 cup old-fashioned rolled oats
  • 1/8 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 teaspoons packed brown sugar
  • 1/2 cup lowfat milk (1% for nutrition analysis)
  • 4 teaspoons toasted pecans or walnuts, chopped (optional)


Bring 2 cups milk and salt to boil in a medium saucepan. Stir in dried oats; then stir in dried Montmorency tart cherries, mixed berries and cinnamon.

Reduce heat. Simmer, uncovered, for 5 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove from heat.

Spoon oatmeal into serving bowls and pour 2 tablespoons milk over each serving.

To toast nuts, preheat oven to 350 degrees. Spread nuts in a single layer in a baking pan. Bake about 8 minutes or until lightly toasted. Cool nuts before chopping.
