Adding to the growing body of oatmeal in assorted options - I blame the bloggers at Kath eats Real Food and For the Love of Oats for directing my thoughts to come up with this concoction.As a kid I thought oatmeal was okay and the only thing that ever fancied it up was a sprinkling of raisins. Then I met my husband who loved oats, and learned about adding brown sugar to it. Next was the discovery of steel cut oats and I thought I had found Nirvana. Then one find day I stumbled onto the two blogs I mentioned, and oatmeal will never be the same. Thank you !!!!!!
