Cherry Almond Baked Oatmeal

My breakfast usually consists of yogurt or a smoothie. If I feel like cooking, I’ll make oatmeal. If I feel like making a mess, I’ll make baked oatmeal.

I’ve made different variations of baked oatmeal before, usually consisting of blueberries and bananas, but I had some frozen tart cherries in the freezer, so this time I thought I’d change it up and use cherries. Tart cherries, not those dark sweet cherries, which I’m sure are good for somethings, but I don’t know what.Cherry Almond Oatmeal-3
This recipe was fairly simple, and tasted like a cherry crisp, but there’s no flour and not much sugar. I wanted to add some nuts, and threw in some sliced almonds. A bit of almond and vanilla extract, and a dollop of vanilla yogurt on top round it out, but if you’re the type to eat ice cream for breakfast, it would be just as good (I totally am, but didn’t have any…I need to go to the store!)
