I agree with those that says its too much cinnamon, I cut it in half and could go down to a third. It is a wee bit sweet, but just cut down on the sugar topping to avoid that. I would replace the apricots with more cherries for those of us that aren't dried apricot fans. I used skim and organic brown sugar (it has a stronger molasses flavor and a different consistency as a topping. With my alterations thought, it is pretty good and love the idea of it!

It's my parents anniversary today so I made this oatmeal as a special early breakfast before work. I left out the apricots and mixed regular and golden raisin. It came out of the oven creamy and delicious. My parents promptly declared they will now be celebrating their anniversary every I can make this every morning!

Smells so yummy when it is baking! I would use more milk, way less cinnamon when making this! It was unpalatable due to the overwhelming cinnamon and it needs more milk. Way too thick! I was very disappointed! So was my man.

Excellent breakfast casserole. I made it in individual ramekins and added a warm vanilla sauce to the top. Delicious, have been asked for the recipe over and over.
