    Yum! We really enjoyed this oatmeal for breakfast this morning. Found it last night and was able to make it with a couple modifications using what I already had in the house. I didn't have craisins or almonds, but I did add pecans. Also added a splash of vanilla and about a teaspoon of brown sugar. The banana made it big enough for two small servings, which was fine, but I would also have been happy not to share!

    Took you up on your whey protein addition, Dimpi. Loved this as a special treat. I, too, added freshly ground flaxseed. What a great way to start the day.

    This was a great morning treat! I added a little bit of brown sugar to this just because I thought it wasn't sweet enough for me. I like having the idea of some nuts in my oatmeal! Thanks for the recipe!

    Very healthy and very tasty. I added some soy protein powder and flax seed powder.This was sweet and creamy. Thanks.


I was born and brought up in a small university town by the south western coast of India, and have been living in various places the last 7 years. I quit my job last year and have been spending hours everyday on 'zaar since then. I enjoy cooking for the most part, especially new recipes. Baking is a relaxing activity for me. My husband and I are beer enthusiasts, and often visit local microbreweries to sample their excellent brew. We love spending time by the water during summers. One of my favorite things to do is snuggle up on the couch on a rainy afternoon, watch the rain through the window while reading a good book with a plate of cake and a cup of strong black coffee.
