Hot Cereal for the "Ticker"

Hot Oat Bran Cereal

1/3 c. oat bran cereal
About 2 tbsp. dried cranberries
   Pour uncooked bran cereal into a one cup measuring cup and fill with water up to the one cup line. Add dried cranberries. Microwave until done... this morning it only took 1 1/2 minutes. Stir half-way between cooking. Watch that it does not boil over. It's a mess to clean up! Stir when done.

1/2 banana, diced
1 tbsp. or more of slivered almonds
1 tsp. Smart Balance (sometimes we use butter)
1 tbsp. sugar-free syrup
Ground cinnamon
1 packet of Splenda if you like
(Some people like to add a few fresh blueberries)

I'm usually not much of a breakfast person, but I've committed to starting my days off right more often from now on. This is a wonderful dish to add to my menu.

I love hot cereals. Course ground oats that cook for 45 minutes, Red River cereal that is so chewy you are still eating it an hour later even if you have brushed your teeth, Cream of Wheat. Mmmm.
The addition of cranberries is the cherry, I mean the berry on top.
