    Fabulous! This not only tastes good, but is good for you! The flavor combination is wonderful - just the right amount of sweetness and the crunch from the walnuts is a nice touch. I used plain milk and added a bit of vanilla. I topped it with vanilla yogurt and the optional honey which really put this over the top! Great breakfast treat!  -  03 Jun 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This is absolutely delicious!!! I make it EVERY Sunday night and bring it to work for the whole week. It is just as excellent reheated! I customize quantities and kinds of nuts and dried fruit... I've found its great with chopped almonds and extra coconut. I also like to top it with freshly cut banana or blueberries! YUMMY!!!  -  16 Jan 2005  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    I used regular milk that I added a teaspoon of vanilla. I cooked the oatmeal in my rice cooker, adding in the maple syrup, raisins, and cranberries and letting it cook with the milk and oats. This was so good. The combination of the fruit with the creamy oatmeal, the crunchy nuts and chewy coconut with a maple-y flavor was just incredible. We all really loved this oatmeal. No leftovers.  -  20 May 2011  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
