I am always looking for nutritious breakfast recipes that I can take to work. I made this the night before; divided it between two ramekins; and refrigerated it overnight. I warmed it up at work the next morning and it was delicious. Thank you, Bernice.

Very easy and quick to make. It was a nice change to the everyday oatmeal.

The orange flavor was unusual. I also found it to be too acidic.

This was so yummy! I squeezed the orange juice fresh and I just could not get enough of this. The brown sugar mixed withthe orange flavor was dynamite.
