Instant Dream Waker Oatmeal

READY IN: 7mins
Recipe by Lumberjackie

This recipe is from Mary and John McDougall's "All You Can Eat Cookbook". It's a delicious twist on oatmeal. This is great with chopped dates, strawberries, blueberries, etc.

I made a single serving of this in the microwave today, but I am not going to rate it because I changed it quite a bit. I used 1/2 cup oatmeal, 1 cup milk, 1/4 cup applesauce, a dash of cinnamon, and about a tablespoon of brown sugar. I mashed half a banana to mix into the oatmeal and cut the other half in slices to put on top. I really enjoyed it, and I really like how the applesauce helps all the other flavors blend together. I think the concept would work well with other fruits too, or even multiple fruits in the same oatmeal. Thanks!
