Looking for an easy way to turn your oatmeal into something special? Our simple oatmeal recipe, Cinnamon Walnut Cherry Oatmeal, is just like a classic breakfast recipe you'd prepare early in the morning on a weekend vacation. Its combination of maple, cinnamon, and walnuts turns this oatmeal recipe into the perfect fall breakfast recipe.

What You'll Need

  • 2 cups milk
  • 1 1/2 cups water
  • 1/3 cup dried cherries
  • 2 cups quick-cooking oats
  • 1 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 3 tablespoons maple syrup
  • 1/2 cup chopped walnuts, toasted

What to Do

  1. Combine milk, water, and dried cherries in a large saucepan; bring just to a boil over medium heat.

  2. Add oats, cinnamon, and salt to saucepan; reduce heat to medium-low, and simmer, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in maple syrup.

  3. Spoon oatmeal into bowls; sprinkle with walnuts.


I love this welcome change from sugary-sweet oatmeal! But if you wake up with a sweet tooth, simply increase the amount of maple syrup you use as desired.
