An interesting change -- I used WW apple cinnamon and cooked it all in the cup the oatmeal came in -- just added the juice and cooked for 1 minute or so. Thanks for sharing.
I've made oatmeal with apple juice many times but this was a first with o.j. and it's a lovely day starter. My only addition was 1/2 a tsp of Splenda. This is bright, fresh tasting and very enjoyable.
Tangy, flavorful, simple. A great way to start the day. I added walnuts and flax seeds. Added it to plain instant oatmeal.
