My family absolutely loved this recipe. I tried adding a cup of different fruit (e.g. raspberries, strawberries, etc) that were frozen and let them sit in the mix overnight. It was delicious. I also took whole almonds and blended the coarse and added a half cup of chopped almonds. It gave the cereal a wonderful crunch. Great!!!! Love this recipe and so did the family.

Served this to rave reviews on Christmas morning! I didn't have enough brown sugar so I added some turbino sugar and a dollop of molasses, also forgot to buy sliced almonds so used some honey/almond granola I had on hand- it was great! Served it in shallow bowls with heavy cream.

I loved it! I omitted the oil and in place of it I added unsweetened applesauce. Also doubled the cinnamon (I love cinnamon), and added pecans rather than almonds (didn't have any on hand). Next time I'll increase the temp to 375 and bake a bit longer.

I have a ? Wouldn't the almonds burn if put in oven for 40-50 minutes, esp. sliced almonds. . I'm sure I'll like it, love oatmeal. Thanks

Delicious! Next time I will use less brown sugar and add a diced apple. The recipe says it is 8 servings, but we each ate 1/4 of the pan! My husband wanted more. So, unless you are a small eater, plan on serving 4 or maybe 6 with this recipe. Could use raisins in place of blueberries or cherries. I just happened to have both in the pantry. Great to serve for a Brunch with fresh fruit on the side.

I just made and ate this. It’s delicious. Definitely 5 stars. . I used steel cut oats and fresh blueberries. No cherries. The house smelled wonderful and I’ll portion out and take this to work through out the week. I’m hoping it freezes well and a good option for my mom, who we make all her meals for so she can take portions out of freezer. I might cut back a bit on the sugar next time but otherwise make no changes. Absolutely delicious!

I love this recipe! Has anyone tried using fresh or frozen blueberries instead of the dried ones?

Great!!! I eliminated the brown sugar, replaced it with unsweetened applesauce, used cashew milk and reduced it to 2 cups (to accommodate the extra moisture in the applesauce), added 1/4 cup of chia seeds, and added sliced apples drizzled with honey on top!!! SO GOOD, what a great idea, especially to make and keep in the fridge for a few extra days of breakfast.
