Well what we liked about this recipe was also what made my oatmeal somewhat unattractive. We liked having the oatmeal, pine nuts and spices toasted just till fragrant (take note the will burn fast if not watched). I made as written and think that in the future will leave the brown sugar out as there is enough dried fruit. Another thing we like is how thick this was I used the amount of water called for and it turned out nice and tick so if you like thinner oatmeal you may want to add more water. Thanks for the post.

What a morning delight this is. I have oatmeal most mornings but this one was something special. Loved all of the flavors coming together like a small symphony for the mouth. Quick and easy to make you won't be sorry for trying this. Lovely way to brighten your morning. :D

This was tasty. I used 1/4 cup mixed dried fruits instead of the individual fruits. I think I'd leave the tumeric out - the yellow tinge is off-putting. Also, it's really easy to burn. Made for ZWT.

Great and different way to make oatmeal. My two oatmeal-loving-kids and I ate it up.

Interesting and delicious take on oatmeal. I cut the recipe in half and made as directed except for using cup of almond milk in place of the water. I did add another 1/4 cup of water. There was one flavor I didn't care for (turmeric?). The dried apricots and dates were wonderful. Made for ZWT9 Soup A Stars.

The warm flavors in this oatmeal dish are wonderful, Dienia B. The cinnamon was the perfect amount, and I liked the scant amount of the other spices that are so prevalent in Moroccan cuisine. The only thing my kids and I didn't care for were the dates. Next time, I'll stick with just raisins and dried apricots. But everything else was wonderful. Made for ZWT #9.

Wonderful oatmeal - better than one I make which is similar to this. I will make this often since we love oatmeal. I use steel-cut oatmeal, so I adjust cooking time and liquid accordingly. I thought the level of sweetness was perfect. Thanks for sharing the recipe.

This is a robust and flavorful oatmeal! Hearty from all the fruits and nuts and nice and creamy. The turmeric was a bit odd but I think it really helped to balance all that cinnamon (which I enjoyed). I went back and forth between wishing it was sweeter and being glad it wasn't and I finally decided the sweetness was just right as is. Thanks for sharing this unusual recipe!
