My kids are C-RAZY about oatmeal! They love it made traditionally for breakfast, eat it in blueberry muffins, as granola, and their absolute favorite is when I use it to make peanut butter fudge (that recipe will come later!). Because of their love for oatmeal, I decided to try this new recipe out. This was given to me by a friend on a parenting forum that I've been a member of for years. The toppings can be adapted to whatever fruits, nuts, berries, honey, etc. that you have laying around the house. We always have honey, cinnamon, and raisins in our pantry, so that's what I used. Thanks for sharing, Shawn!
