Maybe I'm the last to hear but I thought the candied ginger was an awesome addition to oatmeal.I used more since I LOVE ginger. Easy recipe to vary to your liking. I omitted the raisins and saved some raw apple for the garnish along with some pomegranate seeds and frozen blueberries. Combo worked well.

This was an enjoyable breakfast - had to use sultanas as I had no raisins and served it with vanilla yoghurt. I, too , left out the sugar as I am trying to cut back !!

I cut this down to serve one & used pecans in place of almonds, this was quite nice, the ginger was very subtle which is good as I'm not that keen on it. I didn't require any additional sweetner as the apples provided enough sweetness for me.
