I'll suggest using less milk.

Thanks so much for your input.  Changing the amount of milk will make changes in the texture.  Can you give us more of your thoughts about why you suggest less milk and how much less?  It will help others adapt the recipe.

I used the amount of milk in the recipe, but added 1/3 cup more oatmeal, consistancy came out fine. Could almost cut into squares after putting in the fridge, then can re-heat. I also left off the nuts (was making this at home to try for a classroom tasting), and just mixed in the brown sugar instead of broiling it on top. My husband liked it, but thought it could be sweeter! I used unsweetened applesauce, so if you used the sweet kind that might make a difference, it wasn't specificed in the recipe what type to use. Think it would work well in a classroom situation. Great to make the night before for quick breakfast the next morning! It was great re-heated with more milk poured on top.

Great recipe made as is, everyone ate it up! When we ate it the first day out of the oven it was softer than the next day leftovers but both were great! I liked the softer, right out of the oven more but just my taste. I think the recipe is great as is and wouldn't change any ratios!
