Inspired by the hot oatmeal from Starbucks, I decided to make my own version of their dried fruit topping. In a large container with a lid, combine:
1 cup organic golden raisins
1 cup dried cranberries (the ones I get at Vitamin Cottage are apple juice sweetened)
1 cup unsweetened tart cherries
1 cup unsweetened coconut flakes
Put all the ingredients in the container, put lid on and shake until mixed. Store in a glass jar and it will stay good for many months.
You can add this mixture to any hot or cold cereal. I like to toss this mixture into my hot oatmeal in the morning with a dollop of butter. If you let it sit for a few minutes, the fruit will absorb some of the liquid and become soft and chewy.
This mixture is also great mixed with whatever nuts or seeds you have on hand for a quick and easy trail mix.
