Baked Cherry Oatmeal with Toasted Pecans

Posted By Faithful Foodie On July 26, 2009 @ 7:11 AM In Breakfast,Vegetarian | 7 Comments

I love to go to the farmer’s market on Saturdays this time of year. Many times we go out to breakfast on our way and I end up eating way more than I should. For a change of pace, I decided to invite our neighbors, Barbara and Dick, and my mother over for breakfast and to go with us to the market. I served baked cherry oatmeal with maple syrup and toasted pecans on the side, sweet cherries and blueberries mixed with Fage Greek yogurt and a little maple syrup to sweeten, orange juice, coffee, and tea. It was a healthy and tasty breakfast! This is a great recipe to prepare when having house guests and can easily be doubled. It also reheats well if there are leftovers or you want to make a batch to eat through the week.
