Overnight Cherry-Almond Oatmeal

Makes 3 servings

No breakfast recipe is simpler than oatmeal. The soft, melt-in-your-mouth sensation of perfectly cooked oats is unmatched, but there isn’t much room for innovation, right? Wrong! This Overnight Cherry-Almond Oatmeal, made in a slow cooker, takes our beloved oatmeal and elevates it to a new level, integrating dried cherries and almond milk. As with every recipe in the book, it’s healthy, too. Oatmeal has a low glycemic index and is rich in the carbohydrates that can lower cholesterol and blood pressure, helping prevent heart disease. Studies have shown that regular consumption of oatmeal can reduce the risk of developing type 2 diabetes as well, which is just an excuse to make this dish as often as you can!



4 cups vanilla almond milk, plus more for serving
1 cup rolled oats
1 cup dried cherries
⅓ cup brown sugar
½ tsp. salt
¼ cup dark chocolate, chopped



1. Spray a 4-quart slow cooker insert with a thin layer of cooking spray. Combine all the ingredients in the slow cooker and cover. Cook on low 7–8 hours.
2. Stir before serving. Serve with dark chocolate and additional almond milk, if desired.
