Reviews for Spiced Oatmeal Mix

too much sugar for me, I had to add extra oats to each bowl so it wouldn't be too sweet. That said, I like the idea of making "instant" oatmeal and will make it again w/maybe half the sugar.
I will never purchase instant oatmeal again. My family loves this! I add a good 2 cups of dried fruits and add a handful of sliced almonds. Delicious, healthy and easy quick breakfast.
This is a great mix to have around. I substitute Splenda for the white sugar to cut the calories a little. And it lasts WAY longer than 1 month!
The bits of dried fruit turn out as nuggets of sweetness in this oatmeal! Great way to spiff up regular oatmeal. Good job and thanks for sharing!
I made it and packaged it in little bags and used them in gift baskets for Christmas. Everyone that received them asked me for the recipe. I used dried apples, raisins and cranberries. Yummy.
