I cut this recipe by four; and substituted vanilla unsweetened almond milk for the creamer. Delicious and so easy! Thank you Teri for sharing this recipe.

I tried the recipe as it read then modified it a little by adding 1/2 cup of raisins, I placed parchment paper baking cups in muffin pans then filled with the oatmeal then I froze them, When you want one just place in a glass bowl and microwave for 1 1/2 minutes, instant breakfast. this is the best recipe that I've found yet. Awesome and delicious

I really wanted to like this recipe and I'm sure most will. It is healthy which is a great. I came up with another recipe last year that is very similar; however, mine has less oats. I think that is what I didn't like in this one: the apple/oat ratio needs to be tweaked for me.
