This is delicious!! I love all the different forms of the grains here! The apples and apricots hydrate nicely after being cooked for so long which really creates a nice flavour. I did find, however, that the bananas turned chalky after cooking, so I would leave them out next time. I added a bit of cinnamon and sweetener to mine. YUM!! Thanks NurseDi!
