This oatmeal was lovely and light. It was comprised of what has become the base recipe, (1 cup oats + 1 cup milk + 1 cup water, add banana and flaxseed meal/wheat germ when it begins to simmer. Add vanilla, and sugar, if desired. Serve) topped with a dollop of both peanut butter and my favorite, strawberry preserves. It was a refreshing breakfast after the fiasco that was the apple fritter oatmeal pancakes. We made these the day before, and were sorely disappointed. You had to almost burn the outsides of the pancakes to get the insides almost cooked, and the flavor was very bland. I wouldn't recommend them. Have a free day, and make up your own oatmeal concoction instead.
