Hazelnut Cherry Oatmeal Hot Cereal

  • Author: One Lovely Life
  • Yield: 8 (1/4 cup) servings 1x


  • 2 1/2 cups rolled oats (I use Gluten Free oats)
  • 1/3 cup hazelnuts
  • 1/4 cup almonds
  • 1/4 cup raw pepitas/pumpkin seeds
  • 1/2 cup dried cherries
  • 1 Tbsp cocoa powder


  1. Place the oats, nuts, and seeds on a baking sheet at 350 degrees for 10-15 minutes, until just toasted. Let cool completely.
  2. Add toasted oat mixture, dried cherries, and cocoa powder to a food processor or blender. Pulse until the texture is fairly fine. (You can pulse it until it’s almost floury. I like mine with a bit of texture).
  3. Store in an airtight container for up to 1 month.
  4. To prepare a serving in the microwave:
  5. Scoop 1/4 cup oatmeal hot cereal into a bowl with 1/2 cup water. Microwave about 1 minute. Stir in almond milk and any desired toppings.
  6. To prepare a family-size portion on the stovetop:
  7. Scoop 1/4 cup oatmeal hot cereal and 1/2 cup water per person into a saucepan. Bring to a simmer and stir regularly, until most of the liquid is absorbed and the cereal is cooked through to your desired consistency. Stir in milk and desired toppings.
