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.

This was yummy, but turned out a bit thick.

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 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.
