READY IN: 15mins
Recipe by Kree6528

A delicious breakfast recipe from the people at Quaker Oats! The toasted pecans make it a real treat, and it can be dairy-free if soy milk is used (and soy yogurt, if desired).

Delicious, A very good change from regular oatmeal with raisins. DH & I really enjoyed the flavor served it with fat free cream. So easy to make plus satisfying. Thank you Kree.
