I tried this a few days ago and loved it! Thanks for the great recipe. Now, I just have to convince my DH and DS that they’ll love it too 🙂

Vennesa says:

This does sound like dessert Amy. You always give me good ideas!

Amy says:

Mary: Really Mary? We make it with milk a lot! Hope you like it!
Jen Mmmmm. That does sound good! Restaurants are the best inspiration.

Your pie looks pretty good. I`ll try to make it for my son. He is overweight but he still likes pastries and pies.

What a great idea! I’ll be trying this soon. Recently on vacation I was at a nice restaurant for breakfast and ordered creme brulee oatmeal! It was fabulous. It was oatmeal topped with bananas, blueberries, and the signature creme brulee burnt sugar topping.

Iva Young says:

I love it, thanks Amy! 🙂

This sounds wonderful. My boys like oatmeal, but can be picky about it. I think they will love this! Thank you.

Mary says:

I haven’t ever made oatmeal with milk instead of water. I am going to try that. My kids like the “apple pie” oatmeal with dried apple pieces and cinnamon or the “strawberry shortcake” oatmeal with pieces of frozen strawberries and bannana stirred in. I am going to try this “key lime pie” oatmeal in the morning. I like the idea of adding vanilla and lime juice.

I’m still in the “convincing stage” with my brother to eat oatmeal. He is an egg and sausage kind of boy every morning. Which isn’t a bad thing…but I want him to realize how great oats are! Maybe this will do the trick 🙂
