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)
