I enjoy oatmeal for brekkie on cooler days. I also love to add spice to pretty much everything. This hits the spot. Makes 6 *diabetic legal* servings of 1/2 a cup each.

This was wonderful Annacia ~ I love Irish Oatmeal, so this was a perfect choice for us. I threw some toasted pecans in mine and it was perfect! Thanks for posting my new favorite :) Made for Diabetic Forum March Into Spring Tag, March 2010!

I eat steel cut oat every morning. This was a nice way to spice it up some. I used Splenda Brown Sugar Blend, could not find my allspice, did not use salt and used fresh ground nutmeg. I'm going to fix my oats this way again tomorrow. Made for *Gimme 5 Recipe Tag 2009* game

Nice breakfast. Made as written and topped with toasted hazelnuts. We normally use more sweetener then what this calls for, but there is so much flavor with all the spices we did not miss the extra sweetness. The texture was perfect as the milk was served on the side as being optional. Thanks so much for the post.
