we love our oatmeal around here.
we add everything to oatmeal.
nuts, dried fruit, even eggs and scallions.
but it does get a bit tiresome at times.
so, let's brulee it!
i mean, what's better than a crunchy brown sugar topping with cream all over it?
maybe good quality michigan dried cherries or toasty almonds??
the cherries soak up the maple syrup and the almonds get toasted slightly from the broiler.
delicious and easy, its your protein, fiber, and nutrients to get your day going, all in one bowl!
Bruleed Cherry Oatmeal
1/2 cup old fashioned oats, cooked to your liking
healthy splash of pure maple syrup
handful of sliced almonds
handful of quality dried cherries
2 tablespoons brown sugar
splash of cream
Preheat your broiler or fire up your brulee torch.
Add the cooked oats to an oven proof bowl. Add maple syrup, almonds, and cherries and stir to combine. Sprinkle brown sugar over the top and even out with the back of your spoon.
Brulee under the broiler for 2-3 minutes or use the torch until dark golden brown and bubbly. Let cool slightly and pour cream on top. Enjoy!
