Being fascinated with the wonderful ways to prepare oats, and the many flavors they render the taste was exactly what I was hoping for. However, because I love the contrast of sweet/salty in my oatmeal, I did adjust the recipe a little by adding a whole teaspoon of salt rather than just a half and blending in 3 tablespoons of soft margarine. Fantastic! This is a great base recipe for creating your own ideas in baking with oats.
I served this to house guests and it was a hit with everyone. Our guests are very interested in their nutrition, and this hit the spot there, also. Personally, I prefer it not quite so sweet, so will cut the sugar a little the next time I make it. Also, will throw in some trail mix for the fruit and nut mix. I'm glad to add this recipe to my collection.
I tried to reduce this down for one person, which didn't precisely work for the oatmeal part, but it was good with yogurt which I hadn't thought of doing before. :-)
Was a very good and intresting recipe. Thanks .
