We are big fans of oatmeal at my house. While all my kiddos love this oatmeal, this one is my 9-year old daughter’s favorite. She requests it often. I love the smell of warm vanilla filling my house all night long. This cooks up to be a creamy, tasty breakfast. It tastes good without sugar but a little sprinkle brings out the flavor of the vanilla and creamy oats. Mmmm…this is so good.
