My Cherry Chili Brownie Baked Oatmeal was inspired by chocolate my Mom gave me. It was cherry & chili dark chocolate and I absolutely loved it. The only thing it was lacking was . . . the chili flavor.

I was really curious how cherries, chili, and chocolate taste together and that’s how the idea for my baked oatmeal was born. It was quite a risky combination, but it turned out great. Sweet mashed banana and cherries balance out the spiciness of chili, so your mouth isn’t burning (too much?).

    Wow, chili….cherries….chocolate?! I’ve heard of chocolate with a little cayenne, but never with full-on chili powder! I’m really interested because I love both but I’d never think of combining them together!

    I must say it was hard to find your blog in google.
    You write awesome articles but you should rank your page higher in search engines.

    If you don’t know how to do it search on youtube: how to rank a website
