MY REVIEW
Reviewed Sep. 25, 2012

Very quick and easy! Based on the previous reviews, I subbed old fashioned oats for the quick oats.

For my personal taste, I also subbed Craisins for the golden raisins and added a few dashes of pumpkin pie spice at the end.

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Aug. 4, 2012

i just made this recipe twice, once with quick oats and once with old fashioned. the kids ate most of the first batch plain and over yogurt. Glad I made 2 batches! I used dried apricots instead of raisins and threw in some craisins for good measure. Very easy and tasty

I use regular oats. It gives it a better texture. Mix with yogurt for a quick and filling breakfast.
