Cool Summertime Cherry Oatmeal

Start this breakfast oatmeal the night before and when you get up in the morning, breakfast will be waiting for you. This recipe is very versatile. For example, Cool Summertime Cherry Oatmeal can be served with any fruit that your family likes. Chopped apples, peaches, berries or sliced bananas  can be used in place of the bing cherries. Coconut, dried fruit, even mini chocolate chips can be stirred in, right before serving. We garnished bowls of oatmeal with toasted coconut and sliced fresh bing cherries. Top bowls of oatmeal with anything you like.

Taste of Home

I found this recipe in one of my many Taste of Home cookbooks. This particular recipe was in the 2016 Heathy Recipes Annual Cookbook. Most overnight oatmeal recipes are good but the majority of the recipes I’ve tried aren’t sweet enough and lack creaminess. This recipe on the other hand is exactly what I was looking for in an overnight oatmeal. It has the taste and texture that is very similar to rice pudding and who doesn’t like rice pudding! Pitted bing cherries, a favorite of mine, are sliced in half and toasted coconut is the cherry on top! P.S. Cool Summertime Cherry Oatmeal is delicious during the winter months as well.
