Reviews for Hearty Baked Oatmeal
"Delicious when fresh from the oven. Received rave reviews from friends. Not as good reheated the next day. Used about 1/3 c maple syrup as the apples sweeten things up. A hint more cinnamon would be good."
"My only complaint is how long this takes to make, especially when I am hungry in the morning. But, my husband loves it and it is a special treat for us to have on a cool morning."
"Loved this recipe. Added some almonds. Will be making quite often."
"I love this recipe! I make it often."
"YUM! Sprinkled a little brown sugar and sliced almonds on top!"
