This is a great way to get kids to eat oatmeal without sugar or artificial sweeteners. Drizzle with antioxidant rich honey for a slightly sweeter taste.

I love cardamom, but had never thought of putting it in my oatmeal. This is delicious! The amount of cardamom is just right. I made one change-instead of raisins, I used dried cranberries. Drizzled with blackberry honey and used fat-free half and half for an extra treat. Thanks for a great breakfast. Made for Spring 2009 PAC.

Very easy and good; topped off with some skim milk and this is a very filling breakfast. Thanks for sharing!

I thought I was going to need additional cardamom or a few other spices - wrong. Cardamom taste was very strong but not overpowering. Fantastic easy addition to oats - much better than the premix crap. Thank you so much!
