    Delicious! But I hate raisins so I substituted dried cranberries. It is not only great for breakfast but it works very well as comfort food.

    I was looking for a breakfast that would satisfy me until lunch better than plain oatmeal. This hit the spot. It was easy, tasty, and very satisfying. I highly recommend it for holding off hunger until lunchtime.
