This is my new favorite breakfast. The compote has kept well for three days in the refrigerator. I used a bag of Trader Joe's brand frozen, mixed berries and weighted 12 ounces to use, but next time I will just use the whole 16 ounces. My 10 month old daughter also loved this. I might also try it with maple syrup instead of honey to see if it makes a suitable vegan version for friends.

Delicious, easy, hearty, warm, comforting breakfast!! I like Chris2221's suggestion of adding some nuts!

I like that this recipe makes enough compote for a generous number of bowls of oatmeal. It's also super easy and super fast to make - a huge plus. It keeps well in the refrigerator - it was two weeks by the time I used up the last of it, and it was still good. (Although I'd recommend using it up in one week.) I also used Trader Joe's mixed berries. The strawberries were whole and oversized compared to the other berries, and I'm not a huge fan of all those seeds in the raspberries and blackberries, but it was still a nice change of pace. (Blueberry compote is my favorite.) I'd make it again.

I used blueberries and it was delicious. Next time I will add some chopped walnuts or pecans for some crunch.

We loved this! Warm and satisfying, and no fuss. Will try the other suggestions of swapping maple syrup for honey and throwing in some nuts!
