If you are anything like me, you need to lower the fat and increase the fiber in your life. This recipe make a pretty good start to the day and to getting the fiber you need. It freezes well and you will only need to zap one in the microwave to get your day off to a fast start on a positive note.

1 cup boiling water
1 cup white flour

1/4 cup oil
2 tablespoons molasses
1/2 cup raisins
