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.
