I selected this for Zaar Tag as I am always looking for different ways to prepare oatmeal. The recipe has promise; however, I did have some problems with it. The recipe was reduced to 2 servings and my first attempt at making the topping was a disaster. Please don't try this with Splenda Brown Sugar Blend--it didn't work well for me. Also, there seemed to much topping for the 2 servings. The second go at the topping, the quantity was cut in half which seemed better portion sized. The sugar caused this to burn quickly and I would suggest stirring every 30 seconds or so to ensure that this doesn't happen. I might like to try this again and make the topping in the oven to see if that works better.
