I tried this last night/this morn­ing. I used 3 cups of CranAp­ple juice instead of 1 1/2 cups each of Cran­ber­ry juice and Apple juice. We didn’t have the can­died wal­nuts but it was sweet enough. We real­ly enjoyed it and had enough for anoth­er break­fast and to give some away. It seems a lit­tle thin when it’s done but it thick­ens as it cools for a few min­utes. I’ll defi­nate­ly make this again.


Is there real­ly that much fat per serv­ing? Or is it for the whole thing? How many serv­ings does this make? It seems a lot for about 1/4 but­ter for the whole batch. I’d like to try it, but I’m not sure I want to start my day off with that many calo­ries.


how many serv­ings is this? sounds del­ish! i’ve been look­ing for a xmas morn­ing breakf­dast that can cook over night, but not eggs (aller­gy). this sounds per­fect!


Can you use the steel cut oats instead of the reg­u­lar rolled oats?



I made this over Christ­mas with rice as a base instead of oat­meal and it worked real­ly well. I thought it worked great as a fes­tive recipe, I even end­ed up hav­ing it for break­fast most days!!
