I love oatmeal, and my kids do too. But they get bored VERY easily, so I have to really kick it up a notch to keep them from complaining on oatmeal days. This was a spur of the moment recipe, trying to decide what to add to oatmeal. Using the maple and brown sugar packets gives a granola bar flavor to the oatmeal. You could also use regular packets, quick cooking, or old fashioned and sweeten them any way you like. Also, feel free to use graham cracker crumbs, but teddy grahams are what I had on hand. I would eat this for dessert!
