Just like biting into an oatmeal cookie! I used 2 tbs brown sugar and cooked this on the stove top in a traditional manner because I don't fancy microwave ovens. Never new oatmeal could be so yummy!
Was a truly wonderful way to start the day! Loved the flavor the vanilla and brown sugar brought. Have happily enjoyed twice now but have not been able to get a photo either time Errr. But please believe when I say it has a wonderful cookie look to it when made in a wide red soup bowl and then microwaved for 1 minute after adding the brown sugar, cinnamon and vanilla. Thanks for the post.
I am the oatmeal fan in the family, so I was glad to run across this recipe because it is for 1 serving, and it was a surprise bonus that it was a quick microwave recipe. The peanut butter adds such a nice touch to the oatmeal and it meshes well the vanilla, brown sugar and cinnamon. The next time my kids ask for oatmeal, I will certainly be happy to return to this recipe because I know they will love it, too. Thanks for sharing your recipe, Annacia.
