Yummy oatmeal. Really does make a hearty breakfast that keeps you filled up. Scaled this back to one serving. Made for Healthy Choices ABC Tag.

This was a hit with my whole family. I didn't have any dried fruit, so I omitted. I used quick oats and used 3c milk and 3c quick oats. I used pecans and extra maple syrup to make sweeter. I topped with sliced bananas. Everyone loved it and said I'll have to make it again.

This is a yummy, soothing combination of flavors. We added the walnuts separately at the table, since the kids around here won't eat them. This makes six LARGE servings, so I saved the remainder to make into a loaf of quick bread later this week. I think this will be fabulous for the next coming months as the apple and cranberry harvests show up in the stores -- I think I might try a combination of fresh cranberries with apple next time, but I will halve the recipe. Thanks so much, SrtaMaestra!

This is a very creamy, fruity, and flavorful oatmeal. Reducing to 3 servings, I went to make this recipe and realized I had used up the last apple, so I used a peach (peeled and diced) instead, simmering in water as directed. I also used pecans in lieu of walnuts & placed them on the top for presentation. I like that the fruit adds natural sweeteners so I didn't need as much brown sugar as I would normally use. Apples & cream, peaches & cream, it's all good. This recipe seems to be quite versatile to adjust to what you like or have on hand. :)

A great hearty and filling breakfast. I used granny smith apples and raisins. I loved how the raisins plumped up to a sweet, succulent taste. I subbed pecans for the walnuts since that was what I had on hand. Kids didn't care for the nuts so next time I'll just omit them. I topped with brown sugar. Yummmmm.
