Brown Sugar Cherry Oatmeal

My addiction to oatmeal is unwavering. So is my addiction to summer fruit. In this simple breakfast recipe, I combined the two for a delicious (and nutritious) breakfast. The brown sugar complements the cherries well, making them taste more succulent and sweet than usual. And the cherries themselves break up the otherwise creamy dish, giving it new dimension.

The great thing about oatmeal, as I mention in this post, is that it can be made gluten and dairy free, depending on your needs, which makes this recipe free of all allergens! To make it gluten free, use gluten free oatmeal, which is available at most grocery stores.
