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!

I like to sweeten the oatmeal at the end with a little maple syrup. A trick to cut down the cook time is to boil the water and pour it over the oat grout the evening prior. Let it set covered overnight and it should only take 10-15 minutes max to cook in the morning.

One of the most important things you need to do is to toast the oatmeal first in a dry pan. Ooooh, so good.

I made this for a teacher's breakfast at my children's school. It was a huge hit! So many asked for the recipe and gave me compliments. Thank you for posting this recipe! My changes: I under cooked the oats as I needed to transport this in a crock pot and keep it on low at the breakfast. Also I kept out the coconut, cashews, cranberries and sugar. I used those as toppings so the teacher's could individualize their own oats.
