Because they are full of soluble fiber, oats can help to moderate blood sugar levels by slowing digestion. They taste great combined with apples, cherries and walnuts in this hearty, 30-minute breakfast casserole.

  • ½ cup regular rolled oats

  • Prep

  • Ready In

  1. Lightly coat a 1-quart casserole with cooking spray; set aside. In a small saucepan, bring the milk and margarine to boiling. Slowly stir in oats. Stir in apple, dried cherries, walnuts, vanilla and salt. Cook and stir until bubbly. Cook and stir for 2 minutes more. Pour into the prepared casserole.
  2. Bake in a 350 degree oven for 10 minutes. Sprinkle with brown sugar. Bake about 5 minutes more or until bubbly around the edges. Cool slightly. If desired, serve the warm oatmeal with additional milk.
  • Tip: To toast nuts, spread in a shallow baking pan lined with parchment paper. Bake in a 350°F oven for 5 to 10 minutes or until golden, shaking pan once or twice.
  • Variation: For 4 servings, prepare as above, except use a 1½-quart casserole and a medium saucepan (in step 1).
