Nothing like delicious oatmeal for breakfast! This Easy Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe is so easy to prepare and it’s very delicious.
Oatmeal is always a great option for breakfast. I’ve been making my Roasted Blueberry Oatmeal and Coconut Berries Oatmeal Recipe almost everyday, just because I love it to the point that I never get sick of it. I really don’t know why I don’t post more oatmeal recipes on this blog. But, these days I made this Easy Cranberry Oatmeal Recipe, using my leftover cranberry sauce recipe that I posted for Thanksgiving, and it was so creamy and delicious that I decided to share with you today.
It’s so easy and quick to make and I bet you already have all the ingredients in your kitchen. I like to make my oatmeal with 1 cup of oats and 2 cups of coconut/almond milk because it gets creamier. But I’ve seen some recipes with 1 cup of oats and 1 1/2 cups of any type of milk you prefer. It will depend on your taste. If you prefer creamier and a little bit runny oatmeal I suggest you make it with 1 cup of oats and 2 cups of milk.
You can also add chia seeds like I did just to have more nutrients to morning breakfast. And of course let’s not forget to talk about the homemade cranberry sauce. I made it a week ago for Thanksgiving and since I had leftovers I decided to use it in my oatmeal. Mm… Such a good combo! I made it sugar-free, but you can use maple, honey or even white sugar if you prefer. So, ready to dig in? Enjoy!
- Place the rolled oats, almond milk, orange zest, chia seed and maple in a medium pot over medium-high heat.
- Bring to a boil, reduce heat and simmer until fully cooked.
- In a medium jar or bowl, layer the cranberry sauce and oatmeal.
- Garnish with mint leaves. Enjoy!
- You can swap the almond milk for any type of milk.
- Instead of maple syrup, you can use honey instead.
- Careful, not to overcook the oatmeal for the best texture. As the oatmeal cooks, it will thicken more.
- To store: You could store the oatmeal in the fridge for a couple of days in an airtight container.
- To reheat: Reheat the oatmeal on the stovetop or microwave.
- To freeze: Freeze oatmeal in a freezer-safe container for up to 3 months.
