I've made this recipe several times for my family and guests. It is a breakfast treat and is a hit with everyone. Sometimes I use different dried fruits just to mix it up. (Chopped apricots are great alternative.) I toss English walnuts on top once in a while, too. It doesn't matter. Make is suit your tastes or cravings. It is always delicious and satisfying!

I made this for overnight guests. I was unable to find dried cherries so I made it without. It was still delicious and definitely a hit! However, next time I will use less sugar.

I made this with instant oatmeal, non-fat milk, and omitted the sugar. I added dark chocolate chips instead of the fruit. I wanted something healthy for myself to eat, but I would follow the recipe for guests and special occasions. I chilled it in the frig for several hours before baking. It turned out good.

This is excellent! However, I made a lot of changes just because that's what I had on-hand and because I wanted to lower the saturated fats and cholesterol. (But good to know this recipe is so versatile.) I used the following: .5c egg whites, 3c unsweetened soy milk, .5 c fresh blueberries, .5c fresh blackberries, 2c quick-cooking oats, 3/8c brown sugar (we found it to be plenty sweet). I figured the saturated fats are <1g/serving, cholesterol is 0, and about 15g carbs/serving. Thanks for sharing!

I had been looking forward to tying this for quite a while. I finally made it last week when a friend spent a few days with us. My friend really liked it but I thought it was only okay. I guess I thought it would be like an oatmeal cookie. It’s not the recipe’s fault. My expectations weren’t accurate.

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
