Steel-cut oats are whole-grain oats that are simply chopped, so they’re super-nutritious and have a great chew. Chef Marco Canora likes to simmer them in whole milk and almond milk with sweet spices for a breakfast with staying power. Slideshow: More Whole-Grain Breakfasts

How to Make It

Step 1    

In a small bowl, cover the dried sour cherries with warm water and let stand until plumped and softened, about 15 minutes. Drain the cherries and discard the soaking water.

Step 2    

Meanwhile, in a medium saucepan, combine the whole milk, almond milk and 1 cup of water and bring to a boil. Stir 
in the oats, cinnamon, ginger, 
allspice and the 1/4 teaspoon of salt. Cover and cook over low heat, stirring occasionally, until the oats are al dente and the porridge is creamy, 20 minutes.

Step 3    

Stir in the cherries, maple syrup and almonds and season with salt. Serve topped with more maple syrup and almonds.
