Chocolate-covered cherry lovers, this oatmeal is for you! Make breakfast the most decadent meal of the day with this delightful porridge. It's loaded with vanilla, sweet cherries, dark chocolate chunks, shredded coconut and crunchy Pumpkin Seed + Flax granola.



  1. In a small saucepan, heat water, oats, dried coconut, maple syrup, vanilla, and salt over medium heat. Stir often and cook until oatmeal reaches your desired consistency (about 3-5 minutes.)
  2. Stir chopped cherries into oatmeal and transfer into a bowl.
  3. Top oatmeal with a sprinkle of Nature’s Path Pumpkin Seed + Flax granola, chopped dark chocolate, toasted coconut, pumpkin seeds, and a splash of almond milk.
Notes on oats: I used Nature’s Path Old Fashioned Organic Oats to make this porridge. If using another variety of oats, adjust the recipe accordingly:
  1. Quick oats: Reduce cooking time to 1-2 minutes.
  2. Quick cook steel cut: Use 1/4 cup of quick cook steel cut oats and 3/4 cup water. Cook for 5-7 minutes.
  3. Steel cut oats: Use 1/4 cup steel cut oats and 3/4 cup water. Cook for 5 minutes before reducing heat to low and cooking for an additional 20-25 minutes.
