I was looking for a light snack after a big breakfast and this was perfect. I substituted cooked farro for the oatmeal since I had some on hand and I threw in a teaspoon full of chia seeds rather than using the flax powder because I had that too. I also cheated with bottled orange juice rather than squeezing my own. It was still good and I will make it again.
