    Kree's Note:

    Another delicious breakfast from Quaker Oats. This one is my favorite yet! It's so much better than storebought oatmeal mixes, and if you use soy milk it's dairy-free! I've also tried using part soy milk and part water to make it a little lighter and using brown sugar in place of the maple syrup, and it still turned out great!

      This is so Yummy & Healthy I would like to give it 10 + stars. DH & I really enjoyed. I used water instead of milk as we like to use Mocha mix on hot cereal. This will be a regular at our house. Thank you Kree for another delicious recipe.

      Great recipe! I'm leaving this review hours after eating it and I'm still feeling satisfied. I added more wheat germ on accident and it tasted a little healthier than it should have, but very good! Thanks for posting the recipe.

      I went to the Quaker Oats website & combined their "Maple Walnut Oatmeal" with this one, so I don't think it's fair for me to rate this! I used the wheat germ from this recipe & the nuts from the other recipe-didn't use cranberries & cooked it in the microwave. Also used sugar free maple syrup & a Splenda pkt (I have a sweet tooth!)-plus topped it with some sliced banana. A warm, lovely treat; thank u for sharing.
