Spiced Cereal with Cranberries and Pecans

You know those days when you wake up tired (maybe a little crabby) and need to start the day with something comforting before you can even dream of changing out of those pj's?  This recipe was created on one of those days. It is warm, creamy and full of warming spices such as cloves, nutmeg and cinnamon. Mmmm, the perfect way to jump start a typical, rainy Seattle morning. Of course, one must accompany it with a large cup of we're in business!

  • 3/4 c Water
  • 1/8 tsp Salt
  • 1 c Unsweetened Coconut Milk (Or Unsweetened Vanilla Almond milk)
  • 1 tsp Pure Vanilla Extract
  • 1 c Multi-grain Hot Cereal
  • 1/2 c Cranberries
  • 1 tsp grd. Cinnamon
  • 1/2 tsp grd. Ginger
  • 1/4 tsp grd. Cloves
  • 1/4 tsp grd. Nutmeg
  • 1/2 c. Pecans, chopped

Bring coconut milk, salt, vanilla and water to a boil in saucepan. Stir in oats and cranberries.  Simmer for 5 minutes over medium-low heat, continue until oats are tender and liquid is absorbed. Remove from heat, stir in spices and top with chopped pecans. Add more milk as needed.
