This is my go-to oatmeal. I have a bunch of other recipes saved I keep meaning to try, but this one is so easy when I'm sleepy and don't want to be awake, I just make this instead.

Very nice! I used quick cooking oats rather than instant, and that worked very well. For me the syrup was an interesting change because I usually do add a touch of brown sugar. I was thinking that maybe just a dash of salt for the quick cooking oats could have heightened the flavor. It does thicken as it stands for a few minutes, but we (my granddaughter and I) do prefer the thicker version. She will be trying it in the morning, and if needed I will update this review. Thanks, Deborah J Bell! Read More

I made with quick oats and on stove top it was absolutely delicious. I did use 1/4 c blueberries and cooked everything together then drizzled the syrup on at the end. This was so delicious I had it for breakfast and my night snack. Thanks for the recipe. Read More
