This is delicious and a nice change of pace from regular oatmeal! I'm trying to cut my sugar intake so I used unsweetened soymilk and scaled the recipe down to 1/4 cup each and used quick-cooking oats. I added a pinch of cardamom to make up for it not having sugar.

I couldn't find rolled barley individually, so used a 6 grain blend. I loved the cinnamon and used rice milk. Thanks! Made for Everyday is a holiday.

Before I had to go gluten-free, I loved this combo, often adding a chopped apple, and using oat bran in place of rolled oats.
