Oatmeal With Dried Fruit Compote

“This healthy (no salt, no sugar added)breakfast is "fast" food at it's best. Together golden raisins, apricots and cranberries make a colorful compote. For make ahead meals, place oatmeal/compote layers in individual covered containers and refrigerate (or pop a few in the freezer) until ready to reheat in the microwave. We serve this topped with warm milk or cream. What a great way to start the day!”
