I wanted to make something different for breakfast. Pancakes just didn't sound good, and the kids wanted oatmeal. I LOVE THIS RECIPE!!! It was DEEEEElicious! I used fresh apples and regular pancake syrup and it tasted so good! For the first time ever, my daughter actually at the entire bowl! TFS

yum, I did a half serve but didn't use the oil or nuts. This was lovely & warming for the belly on a cold winter's day. Thanks!

This can be made for 4 easily. very hearty and warming. I cut the recipe by 1/2. Raisins would have been great in this too. I used fresh apples that I diced. I did need a bit more water.
