To celebrate Oats Gone Wild coming out in print version, I have a delicious bulk oatmeal recipe for everyone to enjoy – full of filling oats, wheat germ and sunflower seeds.
For me, there is nothing like a bowl of warm oats for breakfast!
Toasted Cherry Oatmeal
- 2 cups Old Fashioned-Oats
- ½ cup finely ground raw shelled sunflower seeds
- 2/3 cup dry milk powder (dairy or Rice Milk Powder)
- 1/3 cup wheat germ
- ¼ cup brown sugar, packed
- 2 tsp ground cinnamon
- ½ tsp fine sea salt
- 1 cup Dried Cherries
Heat oven to 350°. Spread oats and sunflower seeds on a rimmed baking sheet. Bake for 15 minutes, stirring twice, until oats are golden and smelling toasty. Let sit on counter until cool.
Meanwhile, mix the milk powder, wheat germ, brown sugar, cinnamon and salt in a large bowl, working the brown sugar in, until finely mixed. Add in the oat mixture. Store tightly sealed. (Store cherries separately)
Makes 4 cups dry mix, 8 servings prepared.
Bring 2¼ cups water to boil in a medium saucepan, add in 1 cup dry mix, return to a boil. Lower heat to medium-low, cook for 5 minutes, stirring often. Add in ¼ cup of the cherries, let sit for 2 to 3 minutes, divide between 2 bowls and serve.
