Ginger Almond Oatmeal
This warm oatmeal with zesty ginger flavor is accented with the perfect crunch from almonds and cashews. Make it ahead of time, store in an airtight container in the refrigerator, and dole out individual portions on busy weekday mornings. Stir in a little more milk before reheating, as the oats absorb a lot of liquid. Drizzled with maple syrup, this is a delicious and hearty way to start the day.
