5 Ingredient Oats With Vanilla Cherry Compote

This is a simple yet delicious breakfast porridge.

You can make the cherry compote ahead of time and store in the refrigerator or freezer so you can save time in the morning.

Using frozen fruit means you can still enjoy the fresh flavours of cherries (or use raspberries too) without spending too much on them.
