Top Review by PaulaG

Hot cereal is something we have 2 to 3 times a week for breakfast. The recipe was reduced by half using only 2/3 cup of oats. As I don't read directions well the apple juice was substituted for part of the water. The apple was coarsely grated and the yogurt was Greek low fat yogurt. This is a hearty and warming breakfast treat that really sticks with you. Made for Zaar Stars Tag Game.
