This oatmeal is the only recipe you will ever need. I wish I could just tell you how good this oatmeal is. You just need to try it for yourself! When my sister-in-law came to visit I made this oatmeal. She tends to be on the pickier side and wanted the instant apples and cinnamon oatmeal. I told her this was way better and she should try it. Needless to say she loved it and my husband and little ones do too.
I have been making this oatmeal for a few years now. It is so delicious that you could call this oh-so-good oatmeal. This breakfast dish is wholesome even though it tastes like oatmeal “cake”. It is a staple in my house. I make it at least once a week and sometimes even twice.
The wonderful thing about this oatmeal is it is versatile. You can pour milk all around it or eat it with a fork. You can add fresh or dried fruit to the top. My favorite topping is apple or peach. Also, I have a few variations of this oatmeal I will be sharing.
Note: This oatmeal can be doubled for a 9×13 pan if you have a larger family. Many times I find myself out of oil so I use apple juice instead and it works just as well.
