Cherries + almonds = OOOOOMMMMMMGGGGG.
This recipe actually came about on accident. I had been on a PBJ oats kick, but I ran out of strawberries and raspberries one evening - gasp!! So, I had to dig around the fridge to find a suitable alternative. I went with cherries and peanut butter, and then decided maybe it should be almond butter next time. Winner! And THEN the addition of almond extract really put this recipe into the top ten of all time overnight oats combos. You MUST try it!

I love to cook and bake recipes that incorporate healthy whole foods and those nutritious macro and micronutrients into our daily diets. I also like to make treats though, because let's face it, everyone loves a good sweet now and then! My favorite part about cooking, though, is sharing my latest recipes with others. ENJOY! XO
