My mom liked this recipe because it was quick and easy and made enough to fill up all seven of us hungry kids. Now I prepare it for my own family of five.—Kathy Smith, Butler, Indiana

"Believe it or not, but our youngest child who just turned 18 & is still living at home, requested this recipe this week! I first made it when it came out in 2002 when all 6 of our kids were still young & living at home! My notes from that time show that I cut it in half, reduced the sugars to 3/4 cup each of brown & granulated--only changes. Our daughter was only 4 yrs old when I started making this, & she remembers it! That says a lot about how good it is!"

"Everyone in my family loves this baked oatmeal. I only make half the recipe - making one 13 x 9 pan. Based on the reviews I used less sugar the first time I made it so they don't know any different! I also use apple sauce for half the oil. We've been making this once a week for the past couple of months and the kids like it so much they request it more than once a week - That means a firm 5 star rating to me!"

"We all loved this recipe. It's a great way to get my kiddos to eat oatmeal. I followed the recipe the first time, and the next time i cut the sugar in half as well as the oil and added fruit. The kids thought it was great either way."

"664 calories and 32 grams of fat? This recipe is a nightmare.

If you feed this to you kids, it's about 50% of their daily calorie requirement."
