This is a very versatile recipe. You can customize this to each taste in your household. You are only limited by your own imagination. I added 2 chopped slices of dried apple. In the future, I plan to add craisins, raisins, nuts or dried blueberries.
We have enjoyed this recipe for a couple of months now. I have taken the recipe one step further and prepared a larger batch to make it easier when trying to get out the door in the morning. Here is my version of a larger batch with some additions. We have also come to the conclusion that for us, the 1/3 C portion is too large so we use 1/4 C mix with 1/2 C water. Microwave for 2 minutes on high. Stir and add milk. Hope you enjoy.
