1 cup nonfat or low-fat milk
1/2 cup dried cranberries, or currants
2 tablespoons dark brown sugar
Pinch of salt
1 cup water
2/3 cup quick-cooking oats
1/3 cup unprocessed wheat bran
Sliced fresh plums, pears, apples or bananas for garnish
Combine milk, cranberries (or currants), brown sugar, salt and water; heat until almost boiling. Stir in oats and bran and cook, stirring constantly, until the oatmeal starts to thicken, about 1 minute. Cover the pan and remove from the heat. Let stand until the oatmeal is creamy and has absorbed most of the liquid. Divide between 2 bowls, garnish with fruit and serve.
