Great alternative to McDonald's oatmeal! Next time I may add dried cranberries!
we loved this but did add a little more brown sugar to make a little sweeter.
I have been looking for an oatmeal recipe that I didn't have to stand at the stove stirring for a long time. This one is easy, fast and delicious. I didn't have apples so I substituted bananas. The bananas added sweetness, so I think I will reduce or eliminate the sugar next time. Definitely a keeper
My brother showed me a variation of this recipe that we all really like. He buys blueberries when they are in season and freezes enough to last him through the winter. He adds blueberries and chopped walnuts to the oatmeal. Blueberries have the highest concentration of vitamin C than any other fruit including oranges. Having fresh blueberries in the middle of winter is a real boost.
Two thumbs up!
