good morning mr. quaker

Wednesdays are my day off to sleep in...
usually until 7:30...
 and enjoy a late breakfast.
I have been wanting to try 
McDonalds oatmeal
 at home for awhile now.
 

 
Copycat McDonald's
 Maple Brown Sugar & Fruit Oatmeal

Ingredients

    • 1/2 cup rolled oats
    • 1 cup water
    • 1 tablespoon raisins
    • 1 tablespoon golden raisin
    • 1 tablespoon dried cranberries
    • 1 tablespoon brown sugar
    • 2 tablespoons half-and-half
    • 1/4 apple
Directions
  1. Place oats, dried fruit, sugar and cream in jar and cover with one cup of water.
  2. Screw on the lid and shake to mix.
  3. If you’re using a bowl, stir it with a spoon and then cover with a plate before microwaving.
  4. Dice the apple and store in a plastic bag.
  5. When ready to prepare remove the jar’s lid and microwave the jar for one minute, and stir the contents.
  6. Then microwave again for about 1minute and 5 seconds.
  7. Stir in the apples and you’re ready to go!
  8. Of course, you don’t have to use apples at all. Nuts are a great addition, as are tons of other mix-ins.
 
Don't be put off by the calories...a whopping 332! It's a large helping...eat half and save the other half for tomorrow at work.
 
It's very good, I like oatmeal and fruit, but it lacks the maple taste of McD's. Substitute a little maple syrup instead of all the brown sugar?
 
 
Yes, I'll definitely be making this again.
