    I made a double batch of this in a 13 x 9 pan using blueberries, strawberries, added chopped pecans and a handful of was DELICIOUS! I followed others advice and froze in individual containers and pop in the microwave for a couple minutes and it's good to go. Really, really good recipe and you really can throw anything in!

    If I make this in muffin tins, does anyone have any suggestions on cooking time?

    I have been making this casserole since I received my TOH magazine in 2010. I love it and I'm not a fan of plain oatmeal. I also throw in a handful of dried cranberries or raisins and some chopped walnuts or pecans. Try it cold with vanilla yogurt. My 4 daughters and son and their families all live it.

    This tastes great and is just as good the following days.

    This is an absolutely wonderful recipe! I know because of all the substitutions I make and it still comes out great. (I'm trying to reduce the amount of cholesterol, saturated fat, and sugar.) I have made this several times now and have settled on the following: 1/2c Splenda or Stevia instead of brown sugar, twice the cinnamon, 1/2c egg whites instead of 2 eggs, 1c unsweetened vanilla almondmilk instead of the skim, 1/2c margarine instead of butter, and ANY kind of fruit - fresh or frozen (no need to thaw). My family really likes the frozen cherry medley. Thanks much for sharing!

    I have made this several times varying the fruits with whatever I have on hand. I always add a mashed banana, instead of butter I add unsweetened Greek yogurt, use 1/4 cup Splenda brown sugar and a generous 2 tablespoons of honey. My husband loves it for breakfast with milk and heated in the microwave. I am happy with a square just as it is. because of the changes I have made I only give it 4 stars. I also cook it in a 7x11 glass dish

    We love this! It is filling and fairly healthy. I do reduce the butter to 1/4 c., the (dark) brown sugar to 1/2 c., and increase the cinnamon to 2 tsp. I started by making the recipe as written and have made modifications noted above as well as a variety of fruits, both fresh and frozen. I have found the fruits as written work the best. This is breakfast for several days for my husband and I. Yummy!

    My husband thought it was one of the weirdest coffee cakes I had ever made. But, since then he has discovered that he loves baked oatmeal!
