Why not an egg?"

"We really like this oatmeal. I do half the sugar and it is still plenty sweet. I also add about a quarter cup more oatmeal so it is a little bit thicker. I want to try it with apples in the fall, maybe raisins too."

"super yummy...and yes the egg makes a difference. The creamy texture is very soothing and a welcome treat on cold mornings; a soothing treat; or a simple comfort food when my little 1's are under the weather. We don't use pre-packaged food in our diet, so the brown sugar was not an issue for me. There are many ways to cut down on extra sugars in 1's diet without denying one's self the yumminess of brown sugar. ;-) Just my take on it, to each their own."
