The cooking time is way too long - I don't like my oatmeal that mushy. Also, I never understood oatmeal recipes that use water... I always use milk - it's much creamier! Lastly, the milk, bananas, and raisins alone make a bowl of oatmeal plenty sweet - you really don't need the added sugar.

I screwed up and used quick oats so had to drain some excess water, but it still tasted great! I used cinnamon, raisins and brown sugar.

Tasty oatmeal breakfast. With significantly less cooking time and the same toppings, I used organic quick cooking oats, dark raisins and dark brown sugar, using the creamier consistency option. I had no milk but would serve it with rice milk another time. I would like to try this again with old-fashioned oats.

This produces a very creamy bowl of oats. I used the dried cranberries and made 1 1/2 servings for DH and I which was perfect. My oats were sticking a little at the end of 8 minutes. So I turned them off and allowed them to stand the 3 minutes. This has many possabilities like adding nuts, cinnamon, etc. I will use this cooking method again. Thanks.
