This was better than expected!, Member Sandrat954

I prepared this dish yesterday morning for me and my girlfriend and she loved it! I although thought that the dallop of vanilla yogurt was rather tangy to be added to oatmeal. Also I omitted the maple syrup and used pancake syrup instead. I also omitted the walnuts and used almonds instead because I ""love"" almonds. I also added a little low fat margarine during the cooking process. While cooking I did think it would come out needing some sugar, but none was needed at all. The syrup, the apples, and the apple juice sweetened it just fine. I used red delicious apples as well. Now the apples are aesthetically pleasing to the eye with the skin on, but for enjoyment purposes next time I will not leave the skin on. It tends to get stuck in your teeth while eating the oatmeal. But nonetheless, it was a VERY filling breakfast to start your day off. And it was Delicious!
