A great make ahead dish filled with cherries and almonds that will provide breakfast for a week.
3/4 cup steel cut oats
3 cups milk (any combination will do, I use 1/2 coconut from carton & 1/2 almond milk)
1/2 teaspoon vanilla extract
1/2 teaspoon almond extract
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon baking powder
3/4 cup frozen cherries, chopped
1/4 cup dried cherries
1/4 cup sliced almonds
1/4 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
Preheat oven to 350 degrees. Grease a 9 x 12 or similar small sized baking pan. Combine all ingredients in a large bowl and mix together.
Pour into baking pan and bake for 50 – 60 minutes.
Remove from oven and let cool to room temperature.
Either eat warm immediately (oats will be a bit more liquid-y or,refrigerate overnight to set and serve in the morning either cold or warmed up with a bit of milk.
