I used half melted butter, half organic applesauce instead of the full amount of vegetable oil. I cut the sugar back to a scant 1/3 cup and I only used a pinch of salt. I did soak my raisins in hot unsweetened chai tea (I made sure to drain the raisins and pat them dry well before adding them) before adding them to the oatmeal mixture. We all thought this was tasty and quite warm and comforting for a chilly day like today. Next time, I'll use fat free evaporated milk for a creamier texture as well as add a little vanilla extract. I didn't even miss the extra fat in this recipe after substituting half with applesauce and to be honest, I could probably cut it again without missing it. I would have today but I'm completely out. This is almost like rice pudding, only made with oatmeal.
