I did make a few substitutions in this recipe due to milk allergies/dietary restrictions/using what I had on hand. I used lactose-free milk, chopped pecans instead of cashews, I increased the craisins/coconut (I did use unsweetened coconut) and I used two packets of Truvia instead of granulated white sugar (I stirred the Truvia into the oatmeal before serving). This was INCREDIBLE. The kids and I LOVED this oatmeal--for me, it was like having dessert for breakfast. EXCELLENT.


This is delicious. I had a bowl this morning with a fresh peach. I didn't have any cashews so substituted pecans nor did I have any coconut. I did add some flax seed at the end of the cooking time to make it even more nutritious. I made the recipe for four and will be having this for breakfast for the next three mornings it appears. Again delicious! UPDATE: I made up another batch and found a suggestion on the www. that you can freeze individual servings in cupcake wrappers and nuke them for a couple minutes, stir and 30 seconds or more. I now have several individual servings that I can utilize when in a hurry (or not) in the morning.

I like a really creamy oatmeal so I used 3 cups of milk and 1 cup of water. I left out the cashews. Very tasty!
