Excellent.  We enjoy this most Sunday mornings.  I use fat free milk and low fat buttermilk. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Used 6oz carton of vanilla fat free yogurt instead of the whole milk and buttermilk.<br />Delicious recipe.  Makes 5 good sized servings that can be refrigerated &amp; heated up in the microwave when needed.  Just add desired toppings/milk at that time.<br /> item not reviewed by moderator and published
I've been in a massive oatmeal phase and recently purchased a bag of steel cut oatmeal at the market. I decided to make oatmeal from scratch today instead of the instant packs I'm used to every morning and I must say, this recipe was excellent. I used low fat milk instead of whole milk/buttermilk and it was still nice and creamy with the perfect consistency. Not sure if I can go back to the instant packets anymore...... item not reviewed by moderator and published
love this recipe. No fuss taste great. I used almond milk and taste as great as when I used milk. When finished I top w toasted sunflower seeds, tsp on of maple syrup and dried cranberries. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Pretty good but for the ultimate easy I use my pressure cooker. No really. You need a pan that will fit inside the cooker. I have an 8 qt Presto coocker and actually use an old Sigg "Tourist" camping cook set: both the stainless 1.5 L and 2 L pots are without handles and fit perfect. Add 2 cups of water and use the wire trivet to elevate the pan above the water and place on high heat. Load up the inside pan with the correct amounts of steel cut oats and water (pinch of salt). Cover the pan with foil and crimp the edges all around. Place the pan in the cooker (on the trivet) and close. Cook 7 mins at pressure and then remove from heat. Let it sit for 15 min. Open (helps to have some kind of hooks) and stir. Perfect oats every time! No stirring. No babysitting. No frying. No chance of burning. A little cleanup. Total time is about 20 to 25 min. Once you take it off the heat you can leave it up to an hour before you crack it open. It's still hot and perfect. item not reviewed by moderator and published
This is the best! What I do to prevent burning is: 1) give it a fast stir after pouring in the boiling water -- this gets it swirling; 2) Immediately cover pot; 3) turn down the heat to 2 for an electric oven. You will still see a low simmer even at this setting. I cook it for 25 minutes and at that point it has just started to stick. We make a double batch with just the water (6 cups). When it is done cooking I usually add salt, some brown sugar and/or maple syrup, and vanilla and then place in the fridge. We add the milk (usually almond or coconut) to our individual bowls each morning. item not reviewed by moderator and published

Look at the nutrition information. It's still healthy. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Adding fats serves a 2 fold purpose: 1) It keeps you fuller longer so you don't eat as much throughout the day and 2) It tastes better so you feel satisfied. Besides, eating fat doesn't make you 'fat' - overeating does. item not reviewed by moderator and published
Buttermilk and whole milk are healthy, this adds so much more to the meal and makes it some real energy for the day. Dont give something one star based on assumptions. Cause we all know what assumptions make... item not reviewed by moderator and published
