Cherry Oatmeal

READY IN: 11mins
Recipe by Amber of AZ

This is a tasty recipe I found and adapted from the Busy People's Low-Fat Cookbook by Dawn Hall. It is 4 points if prepared as directed. If you use Splenda the recipe would be 3 points.

I made 2 servings of this and it was really good. I like that it is only lightly sweet. I followed another reviewer and topped it with sliced almonds.
