Was leafing through recipes looking to ways to use the box of dried apricots sitting in the cupboard and i found this. Great breakfast!Very satisfying. I added a tad of cinnamon to my bowl also. Great to find healthy meals that taste great!Also i sweetened with pure maple syrup instead of brown sugar. Yum!!! Thanks!!!
