I eat a lot of oatmeal breakfasts and always with cranberries, but I've never thought to try subbing juice for the water before. This was absolutely genius! I used orange flavored dried cranberries, a dab of Chilean honey and some fresh ground cinnamon. I cooked mine a little longer, just cause I like a little thicker consistency. Delicious! Thanks for sharing this idea, Rita! Made & enjoyed for the 2012 All Aboard the L-O-V-E train! tag game
A great change from my usual oatmeal. I didn't have any dried cranberries so used some fresh but added a little splenda and 1/2 cup of milk. Very filling! Thanks for sharing!
I haven't made this, but I just wanted to point out that the vitamin C in the juice will simply get killed during heating.
