I loved the blend of flavors - lovely bits of sweetness with the dried cranberries. The nut mixture was an excellent touch and helped to make this oatmeal so filling. The only change I may make in the future is to cut down on the amount of oatmeal - I was already filled up only halfway through my bowl! Thanks for sharing!
This is soooooo good!! Made for a delish and healthy breakfast!! Added some dried cranberries and used low-fat milk. Loved the crunchyness of the almonds and walnuts (didn't have any pecans, so didn't add). Thanks Sharon! :)
This oatmeal is fantastic! I am very particular about oatmeal and this one is SO good. It is my favorite now. It has such a great combination of ingredients. Thanks for sharing.
After I ate this, I walked around the kitchen going "wow!" over and over. I love to try oatmeal all different ways, and this is one of the best oatmeals I've ever made! You break the crunchy topping apart almost like a brittle, and it is the real star here. I also liked the tart counterbalance of the cranberries. For our tastes, I halved the milk and maple syrup that topped the oatmeal. This one's a definite winner!
Hi Sharon, I made this in honor of your "cook a thon" and am sending good thoughts your way! I eat a lot oatmeal but this was so good that I had to quickly make a second bowl! The granola had a perfect crunch to it and was so easy. I microwaved my butter, nuts, syrup first. I will making another batch this morning, too. Thanks for posting. Roxygirl
This was a real treat and really dressed up a bowl of oatmeal. Nutty, slightly tart from the cranberries, and just sweet enough. Like PaulaG stated, this would be great sprinkled over yoghurt and frozen yoghurt.
I love oatmeal and eat a lot of it. This was such a nice change of pace. Loved the mixture of textures and flavors.
The crunchy nut topping is wonderful! I made the topping the night before, mixed in the cranberries and this morning made the oatmeal. The topping is nice and cruncy with a light sweetness. I can see this on top of yogurt and other hot cereals.
