I have always had a love for oatmeal. Every now and then I also love those instant packets that you can find in a variety of flavors. Maple and Brown Sugar is one of my favorites.

Not only do I have rolled oats on hand to make some of my favorite oatmeal recipes like my Cinnamon Roll Oatmeal, but it’s great for whipping up some homemade granola or to make my favorite Iced Oatmeal Cookies.

  1. This turned out great, without the brown sugar. Once I added that, it was too sweet. I also only added the first 2 tablespoons of syrup. I add chopped apples to mine as well.
    Thanks for the recipe!

  2. This was sooooo delish. It was very filling. I had it for the breakfast around 10:00 a.m. and I didn’t experience hunger until 4:00 p.m. I used almond milk and coconut sugar to make it vegan and healthier and less calories. I used the original Blue Diamond which is only 30 calories a cup! Use the glaze for as much or as little as you want. I added sliced bananas and drew the glaze on top. I have printed this recipe and added it to my recipe binder.

  3. I have been eating this oatmeal for almost three weeks straight for breakfast in the mornings. It gets better with each bite. This time I substituted unsweetened coconunt milk (30 cals). I used coconut sugar that I purchased from Marshalls. And I added banana and golden raisins as toppings. So tasty!! I look forward to waking up and creating this filling, satisfying and nutritious meal. I will start experimenting with adding protein.

  4. I usually hate oatmeal, but this recipe is delicious! I use two cups of milk for a thinner consistency, and it’s perfect!
