This is my favorite breakfast. I never thought I’d get excited about oatmeal, but when I eat this, it’s so good it makes my toes curl with delight.  The cranberries aren’t sour or puckery, they just add a hint of tartness.


1 cup water

pinch of salt

12-14 fresh cranberries

1/8 tsp cinnamon

1/2 cup old-fashioned oats

1 med. banana, mashed


Add salt and cranberries to the water and bring to a boil in a small, heavy-bottomed saucepan. Add cinnamon & oatmeal and stir. Turn down to a simmer and cook, stirring occasionally, until water is mostly absorbed, about 3 minutes. Meanwhile, mash banana in the cereal bowl. When oatmeal is thickened to your liking, add it to the banana and mix well.
