Recipe: Cranberry-walnut oatmeal

Recipe: Cranberry-walnut oatmeal

Cranberry-walnut oatmeal — one of many healthy recipes from Mayo Clinic.

Dietitian's tip: Steel-cut oats make a creamy, delicious oatmeal. If you have time, toast the walnuts to bring out their flavor. Try substituting other dried fruits — raisins, apricots or apples — for the cranberries.


Directions

In a saucepan, combine the oats, cranberries, salt, cinnamon and water. Bring to a boil over high heat, then reduce the heat to low and simmer, uncovered, until the oats are tender, about 20 minutes.

Spoon the oatmeal into warmed individual bowls and sprinkle each serving with 1 teaspoon of the walnuts and 1 teaspoon of the brown sugar. Serve immediately.


Ingredients
  • 1 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1/3 cup sweetened dried cranberries
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 2 cups water
  • 4 teaspoons chopped walnuts
  • 4 teaspoons firmly packed brown sugar
