    Comfort food at its best! A nutritious way to start your day. Make sure your oatmeal is fresh and good quality! My favorite restaurant to eat breakfast in town serves their oatmeal just like this.

      The cooking time is way too long - I don't like my oatmeal that mushy. Also, I never understood oatmeal recipes that use water... I always use milk - it's much creamier! Lastly, the milk, bananas, and raisins alone make a bowl of oatmeal plenty sweet - you really don't need the added sugar.

      I screwed up and used quick oats so had to drain some excess water, but it still tasted great! I used cinnamon, raisins and brown sugar.

      Tasty oatmeal breakfast. With significantly less cooking time and the same toppings, I used organic quick cooking oats, dark raisins and dark brown sugar, using the creamier consistency option. I had no milk but would serve it with rice milk another time. I would like to try this again with old-fashioned oats.
