    Excellent oatmeal recipe! I’m dieting, so I changed a few things to make it healthier. I used 1 cup water and 3/4 skim milk and reduced the brown sugar to 2 tbsp. It was still sweet and delicious. I didn’t miss the additional brown sugar at all.

    Delicious! I added applesauce to the recipe, topped the oatmeal with applesauce instead of milk, and cooked the oatmeal in water. Thank you, Lesley, for sharing this recipe.

    So good! Husband loved it, yay! I was worried it was going to be too sweet but I followed the directions exactly and it was perfect. I will make again and again.

    What is up with all the salt hate? It's an 1/8 teaspoon! It won't kill you, and it just makes things taste better! Having said that, I give this a three simply because I find the idea of milk in oatmeal to be repugnant and it's oatmeal! The directions are right there on the box and you can add anything you want to it! That's the beauty and simplicity of oatmeal. :)

    I prepared this recipe this morning and declare it a winner. It is not only easy but delicious. So much better than the purchased flavored oatmeal. The only thing I will do next time is leave out the salt. Those of you who salt everything, may want to leave it in. This oatmeal is good anytime. I buy fresh blueberries in the summer and freeze for winter. I highly recommend this recipe as a Volunteer Field Editor for Taste of Home.

    This recipe is simple and delicious, exactly what I need to make a quick breakfast before work. I am on a low-sodium diet, so I omitted the salt and it was great. No more packaged oatmeal for me!

    made it this morning with gluten free oats! The blueberries are my favorite part! The little burst of juice and flavor makes it that much better.
