I made this recipe exactly as stated except I omitted the ginger after reading other reviews. I did throw a dash of pumpkin pie spice in and it turned out delish! I especially loved the texture of the oatmeal. Not too sweet, with just enough favor to make me scrape the bowl clean! I will definitely log this one in my recipe book.

Made exactly to recipe, except I used unsweetened applesauce so I added another 2 tbsp white sugar. I couldn't imagine 1/2 tsp ginger being to much, but I'm forced to agree with the others. It did take over. I would use apple pie spice if I did this again (as someone else suggested!) I also thought it could be sweeter. I did like the texture the applesauce gives it though! - and I must say I like it way better cold, the spices melt in.
