This is such an easy recipe for a quick breakfast.  It stores well too, so it could easily be made Sunday night and eaten several mornings in the week.  I have never had an issue with it being too thick, but that could easily be amended by adding a little extra milk to get the preferred texture.

This recipe goes great with Food Hero's Not Your Everyday Apples when the apples are prepared ahead of time and served cold as a topping for the oatmeal.

This was yummy, but turned out a bit thick.

Oatmeal is my favorite food for breakfast, so this is a good recipe for the hot summer-time! I use any fruit I have on hand.
