I’ve been playing with this recipe for a few months since receiving it from a (non-running) friend.  It’s incredible – my favorite breakfast.  Keeps well in the fridge or freezer and nukes up well in the microwave.

 

Next time I make it, I’m going to increase the raisins to 1 cup, reduce the sugar a bit (raisins are sweet), and increase the cinnamon.  – Frank Cadwell
