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.

How to Make Cranberry Pistachio Oatmeal

Water and dried cranberries in a small saucepan.

In a medium saucepan, over high heat, bring the water and dried cranberries to a boil.

Oats and salt added to saucepan with cranberries.

Stir in the oats and salt. Reduce the heat to medium and cook, stirring frequently, for about 5 minutes.

Adding pistachios and brown sugar to cooked oatmeal.

Stir in the pistachios and brown sugar. Stir until sugar has completely melted.

Serve with a pat of butter and a drizzle of cream.

    What a great combination of flavors! The perfect way to start the day.

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Thanks, Kellie! Oatmeal always starts my day right.

  2. 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. Lana Stuart says:

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

      1. Leftover spaghetti – Breakfast of champions. Nuff said.

        Miss P

  3. Delicious and pretty way to dress up your oatmeal – the combo almost makes it sound like a cookie recipe!

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Oh…you just gave me a great idea for a new recipe!!!

  4. Isabelle @ Crumb says:

    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! :)

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Thanks, Isabelle. Yes, it’s a nice change for me, too, from my usual honey and cream :-)

  5. Marjory @ Dinner-Mom says:

    Love the pistachios! I enjoy these often and never thought to put them in my morning oatmeal!

      Give it a try, Marjory. I think you’ll like it!

      Doesn’t it? It’ll be October/November before we have a really cool morning here :-)

  9. Renee - Kudos Kitchen says:

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

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      Me too, Renee! Cranberries and pistachios really compliment each other.

  10. Lora @cakeduchess says:

    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…:))

    1. Lana Stuart says:

      It really is best on a cool Fall morning, isn’t it? And yes, the brown sugar really makes it wonderful.
