For the longest time one of my favorite Starbucks treats was their orange-cranberry scone. It’s this gloriously huge hunk of tenderness with hints of orange, bits of dried cranberries, filled with a sort of cranberry jam, and drizzled with sweet icing. It’s not really something I get anymore seeing as how I avoid dairy nowadays and all of that, but I still crave that flavor combination.

This is basically just a super simple recipe for creamy oats cooked up with a mix of water and almond milk for extra creaminess.

And then, there’s that big ol’ cozy twist of flavor. Orange zest, warming spices, dried cranberries cooked right up with the oats so that they’re nice and sweet and plump by the time it’s served. I find, by the way, that the cranberries make this oatmeal plenty sweet, and that no added sugar is necessary – but you may want to add a drizzle of sweetener like pure maple syrup to the mix.

A smattering of pecans, a few extra cranberries, another drizzle of almond milk, and some pretty orange slices sweeten the deal. Cranberry Orange Steel Cut Oatmeal is a plant-based, super-hearty, uber-comforting breakfast – no Starbucks pastries needed.
