"Delicious, filling, and comforting on a cold morning. It's really flexible, so substitute in your favorite nuts and fruit. Cashews and cherries are just my personal favorite."

very good. used dried cherries, cranberries, and sliced almonds instead of cashews. Made a double batch and put in small containers for breakfast later this week.

First time I made this. I only added chopped cashews and fresh blueberries and it was delicious and quick. Will definitely be making again.
