Here are a few fun facts and tips about oatmeal; People buy more oatmeal during January than any other month. Oatmeal is the first product given FDA approval to carry a food-specific health claim. Oatmeal is a whole grain cereal made from oat groats. It has the bran, germ and endosperm. The difference between quick oats and old-fashioned oats?

Really good recipe & I love that it's made in the microwave. It's something DD will eat & it's fast enough that she was able to wait for it. :) I used a granny smith so next time I might add a bit of brown sugar to balance the tartness a bit. Probably a sweeter apple would be plenty sweetness next time too. I had to sub cranberries for the raisins and just used a couple pecans for garnish, although they were really good with this recipe. We'll be making this again & again! Thanks for posting, Char! Made & enjoyed for the Diabetic Forum's Harvest Moon Apple Festival event.
