This recipe is a great platform for your own variations:

  • Top with fresh or dried fruit
  • For a little crunch, add some nuts or seeds
  • Add 1/4 cup grated apple or pear and a dash of cinnamon
  • Mix some grated carrot in with the fruit for a veggie boost
  • Substitute honey, maple syrup or agave for the brown sugar.

 To make with cow’s milk or coconut milk, substitute water for half the liquid.
