A New Twist on an Old Favorite - Cranberry, Almond and White Chocolate Oatmeal

On cold mornings, nothing warms me up quite like hot cereal.  I love them all.  Oatmeal, grits, quinoa, rice.  They are warm and yummy and comforting!
 
Recently while throwing together some oatmeal fixings for the morning, you'll never guess what fell out of my cabinet.  (OK, you might guess.)  White Chocolate Chips.  Yep!  White chocolate chips left over from this Scrumptious Treat just fell out of my cabinet right next to the measuring cup.  My bowl already had cranberries it, so why not add some white chocolate?  Why not, indeed!
 
Mmmmm... 
 
  
Cranberry, Almond and White Chocolate Oatmeal
Recipe:
 
1/3 cup Quaker Old Fashioned Oats
About 1/6 cup slivered almonds
About 1/6 cup white chocolate chips
1/3 cup dried cranberries
2/3 cup water
1 teaspoon butter
 
Stir.  Zap in microwave for 2 1/2 minutes on high.  Let cool slightly.  Enjoy!  Since I don't like things overly sweet, no sugar was added.  There was plenty of sweetness for me from the cranberries and white chocolate.

 
What recipes have been falling out of your cabinet?

  4. We have recently been on a kick making oatmeal on the stove and the son loves the granberries! I thinking adding a handful of white chocolate chips would be the perfect addition! Thanks for sharing the idea! P.S. we tried with dried apricots but it wasn't as good, just an fyi. Have an awesome week!!

  6. The cranberries and almonds sound good, but I'm not a big white chocolate fan.
