Recipe by Charlotte J
This comes from Mr. Food. I thought I'd give it a try with my kids when their in a hurry to get to school. This needs to chill over night.

I had really high hopes for this recipe as I love oatmeal for breakfast. I followed the recipe exactly except for omitting raisins as I don't like them. I couldn't get past the consistency of this, even when cooked as crispy as I could get it - it was too jelly-like. If I don't like a recipe I try to think of ways to make it more to my liking but don't know what to do with this. Thank you for posting though.
