A Better Oatmeal

A great wintertime breakfast always starts with A Better Oatmeal.  Here is my version that is reminiscent of the goodness of what Mom told you to eat as a child but I made it taste like a better oatmeal cookie!!  Hope you enjoy as much as we do.  Since I am diabetic, I use sugar free pancake syrup for the sweetener.   You could use brown sugar for that sweeter flavor...or eliminate the syrup if you do not want it sweet.
