This was very good. Made a double batch. At first it was not sweet enough, so I added brown sugar until it was the sweetness that I wanted. Made for PAC Fall 2008.

Oatmeal is a favorite breakfast in my house. I really enjoyed the addition of the applesauce. Not having apple pie spice, I used Baking Spice Blend Mix. The recipe is well written and easy to follow.
