Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal

Cranberry Walnut Oatmeal


  • Oatmeal (quick oats, if you can get them)
  • Dried Cranberries (like Craisins)
  • Walnuts


  • Honey, Sugar, or Maple Syrup
  • Fresh Apples


  • Boil water in the kettle.
  • Place the amount of oatmeal you will eat in your bowl.
  • Add the required amount of boiling water to the bowl based on the oatmeal instructions (basically, just cover the oatmeal).
  • Cover the top of the bowl with the lid or a plate, plastic bag, brochure or other make-shift “lid” to keep the heat in.
  • Wait 5 minutes or until all water is absorbed and oatmeal is cooked.
  • Add dried cranberries, chopped walnuts, and any optional ingredients you want.
  • Stir and enjoy!


  • Try other dried fruit such as raisins, pineapple, mango, papaya instead of cranberries.
  • Try other nuts such as almonds, macadamia, or pecans instead of walnuts.
  • Try other fresh fruit such as bananas, pear, cherries, or plums instead of apples.
  • If you add any dried fruit to the oatmeal before adding the water, they will re-hydrate somewhat and become softer.
  • You can basically add anything to oatmeal – mix and match and be creative!
