It was fun to make. I did a combination of fresh apples, strawberries, and blueberries, and added dried cherries.
It looked good going in, and smelled great while cooking. The finished product looked pretty good too. I discovered at the last minute that my husband had used our pie pan to make roasted vegetables the night before, so I had to use a cake tin instead. This ended up being a good thing, as it made to much to go in the pie pan anyway.
Sadly, it was a bit disappointing. Don't get me wrong, we all ate our pieces, but it just wasn't as tasty as I'd hoped. It wasn't oatmeal-y enough. I love oatmeal. What other food is so good for you, and so tasty at the same time? I find adding a bit of fruit, and a tablespoon or so of brown sugar, turns oatmeal into one of the tastiest food items on earth. This had 1/3 cup of maple syrup, and tons of fruit, and it still managed to taste a bit bland.
I'm making peanut butter cookies tonight to make up for this baking disappointment.
