I've looked, for awhile now, for a form of oatmeal my husband will eat without grimacing. He hates oatmeal. Not the taste, but the texture after it's cooked (as a cereal of course). This has beyond won his favour. He loves it! Furthermore my children love it, my father, who is a standard oatmeal fan, loved the change, and I too am a fan. I make mine with Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, Soymilk, and canola oil, and I find it turns out the same as when you use the ingredients called for. I also, personally, like to add 1 heaping cup of blueberries (usually frozen in this house, unless we're in season), instead of the cranberries. Works very well.
I also have to recommend adding 1 cup of pumpkin puree, instead of the 1/2 cup of butter. Leave the butter out, and the 1 cup of puree gives it a very pumpkin pie like taste. Not exact, but similar. Add half a tsp of ground cloves, all spice, ginger, and nutmeg, and it smells like a pumpkin pie. It's very moist, incredibly cake like, and a good option for the fall months.
