No bake means no fuss, and that’s what you get with this easy recipe. It can be eaten anytime, but it makes for a perfect breakfast when the cereal isn’t tasting as good as usual and a plain bagel just doesn’t cut it. Ripe cherries and blueberries do the leg work of changing traditional oatmeal into something far more sweet and splendid. If you’re thinking of turning this breakfast into a dessert (who wouldn’t want that?), try adding some maple or vanilla ice cream on top for something that feels healthy and indulgent at the same time.
