Maple, Cranberry and Almond Oatmeal (Porridge)
Serves 3-4 

1  1/2 cups oats (I use Trader Joe's Steel Cut oats)
pinch of salt
1 cup water
2 cups milk* 
2 Tblpns maple syrup
1/4 cup chopped almonds
1/4 cup dried cranberries (TJ's orange cranberries are delish)

Bring water and milk to a boil and add oats, salt cranberries and maple syrup.  Reduce heat and simmer for 5-7 minutes, stirring quite a bit.  Finish cooking when favourite consistency is reached.  Pour into bowls and sprinkle on chopped almonds.  Serve with extra milk/maple syrup as needed.

NOTE: You can substitute almond milk for cows milk which gives a lovely creamy flavour.
