Very good oatmeal Cassandra. Since it wasn't specified exactly what kind of oats to use I used Old Fashioned Oats. I didn't have any applesauce so I mashed up 1/2 a banana and used crushed flax seeds in place of the wheat germ. I also used frozen blueberries since that's all I had. I too am trying to incorporate enough fiber into my diet and this oatmeal was definitely a great start to my day. Thanks for sharing. Read More

I am rating this a little lower than it may deserve as this was my first attempt at eating oatmeal. I didnt use any sugar as I am on a 2 month detox but I did add extra applesauce and vanilla. It had taste although was still a little bland to me. Might just be because it was my first time. I am gonna keep trying it to see if as my taste buds change it will get better over time. thanks for sharing this recipe! Read More

So yummy! I used a frozen berry mix(blueberries blackberries and raspberries) the first time I made this the second I threw in strawberries and bananas. A little vanilla helps the flavor. Read More

This recipe was actually pretty good but I did find the problem that some others were complaining about (the blandness): salt. You need a little salt to bring out the flavors. I also used only 1 teaspoon of cinnamon and it was really good! Read More

I love this. Sometimes I add flax and I usually slice banana over the top after it's in the bowl to add more texture nutrition and flavor. Read More

This was a great change from the usual oatmeal. I used strawberries instead of blueberries. This would be great with any fruit and a very healthy way to start the day. Thanks Cassandra. Read More

Good oatmeal not great but I'm really trying to make healthier breakfasts on the weekends. I did however have to add more sugar (and a touch of salt). Read More

A good starting point for inspiration but I feel the recipe needs some modifications. For me the finished product was too runny -- next time I would probably decrease the milk and water by 1/4 cup each. As other reviewers suggested I added some vanilla (1/2 tsp) and an additional teaspoon of sugar to sweeten it to my tastes. Using a bit of fat-free half and half in place of some of the milk adds richness without extra fat. Read More

For this recipe I use Irish Oats in a rice cooker that has programing for porridge. I add all the ingredients at night and in the morning everything is ready. I add a pat of butter or Smart Balance to give it the salt taste it needs. Read More
