This Cranberry Pistachio Oatmeal is just a little something different for your mornings. Liven up that daily bowl of oatmeal with these delicious additions.

Just a little something different in your morning bowl of oatmeal! Cranberry Pistachio Oatmeal from @NevrEnoughThyme https://www.lanascooking.com/cranberry-pistachio-oatmeal/

Oatmeal is a breakfast staple in our house as I’m sure it is in many of yours. We enjoy it all year round and appreciate it for its many, many health benefits!

Not only is it good for you, it’s very budget friendly. But, let’s face it, oatmeal can become a little bit boring, especially if you’re having it several times a week. That same old bowl of mushy oatmeal with a bit of honey and cream starts to look a little unappealing after a while, right?

That’s why I enjoy finding new and interesting ways to serve it, like my Date Nut Oatmeal and this Cranberry Pistachio Oatmeal.

You’d be surprised the difference just a handful of interesting ingredients stirred into your morning oatmeal will make! Give it a try and let me know what you think.

  1. Oh, I wish I was a breakfast person. This would probably be a good idea. Alas, my idea of breakfast is more like brunch, and it should occur somewhere around 9:30 to 10….. when I am up to my elbows in paper.

    1. I remember that you’ve never liked breakfast/breakfast foods. I seem to recall you having leftover spaghetti for breakfast when we were kids :-)

  2. Oatmeal is my go-to cold weather breakfast, and now that I’m starting to feel a little nip in the morning air, I think it’s time to reacquaint myself with my old friend. Love this combo of dried cranberries and pistachios… it sounds like a nice change from my trusty old Maple Brown Sugar! :)

  3. That is one delicious looking bowl of oatmeal! Since pistachios are one of my favorite nuts, I would gladly eat this every single day!

  4. Once the temps cool down, I look forward to warm, cozy bowls of oatmeal…even as a snack. Now I’ve got to try your cranberry version. Pistachio is a favorite of mine!! And that brown sugar…:))
