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.
