Note From Recipe Submitter:
My old woman used to make this a couple times a year. Now, it's something I make that's NOT in the microwave. I like it, but who the heck am I, right? She called it Amish Oatmeal. She was from Amish country in Pennsylvania.



A granola-type homemade breakfast cereal that's best served hot with warm milk, brown sugar and fresh fruit.

Mr Breakfast would like to thank dlohr for this recipe.

Very tasty and easy! A little too sweet for my taste, but that is adjustable.

This blew my mind. So good! My husband hates oatmeal. He calls it mush. But he loved this with the little bit of crunch. And of course the kids and I did too. Only problem... one pan is NOT enough for this family. Thank you!

Can I substitute old fashioned oats for the quick oats?

My husband and I LOVE this recipe! We like to add blueberries and craisins either on top or into the mixture as it cooks - both ways are great. We have also used brown sugar, which makes the cereal a little less sweet, which is delicious!
