Toasted Oatmeal

Recently, while reading a magazine, I saw an ad that included an advertisement for toasted oatmeal, posted by Quaker.  It looked good, mostly.  I modified the recipe to meet my needs (and the contents of my cupboard) and came up with this.

2 1/4 c  Oats
3/4 c  Nuts
1/3 c  Light Brown Sugar
1 T  Cinnamon
Dried Fruit

Heat oven to 350 degrees.

Chop nuts fine. Mix with oats, spread into a shallow baking pan.  

Put in oven until oats are lightly browned, about 15 minutes.Remove from oven, cool completely in pan.  Add brown sugar and cinnamon.

Stir.  Store in a tight container.

When ready to serve:  
Mix 1/3 cup oatmeal mixture with 2/3 cup water.  Microwave on 50% power
for 8 minutes.  Stir in dried fruit and milk, enjoy.
