As soon as I saw this recipe in the current edition of Cooking Light, I knew I had a winner on my hands. It's easy, it's healthy, and it only takes about 15 minutes to make, most of that being non-active cooking time. I can see already having the dry ingredients mixed up in the pantry, and just boiling the water to throw it in.
The cranberries and raisins become delightfully plump and sweet, and the flax seed was added to up the nutritional ante a bit more.
