    I make this recipe with raw oats (Jungle Oats here in SA). I also use the fruit, nuts and grated apple but then instead of milk, I use 1 cup of apple juice. I make it in the morning when I wake, cover and leave. By the time I get to work the oats have absorbed the apple juice. I then enjoy. Try it! - 8/3/10

    This has an odd texture when it is cold. It is much better room temp. or warm. I added cinnamon plus and wheat germ. It is very filling and yummy warm. - 5/20/08

    Great base recipe for cold oatmeal. I like to use half milk/half 0% greek yogurt for creamier, dreamier oatmeal. Also add flax seed for protien kick. - 6/1/10

    This is a great base recipe. I also add a tsp each of ground flax, wheat germ, wheat bran and oat bran along with cinnamon and slivered almonds. To avoid extra calories, I only use a T of the dried fruit options or fresh fruit in season. I liked the idea of using soy milk. - 8/3/10
