A version of this recipe was in some cookbook my mom had that I found growing up. I've made it off and on for years. While I don't have the original recipe, this is my version (though I only measured the ingredients so I could post them here). This is an easy way to spruce up oatmeal; the lemon juice - brown sugar contrast is so good.
