    I just found Scotch Oats at Costco and made this recipe! Really nice. I forgot to put in the cinnamon but it was really good, even without it! (I'll try to remember next time!) Thanks!

    Delicious. And very filling! After soaking overnight, I simmered it for about 15 mins. until it had a thick consistency. One tbsp sweetener is just enough (I used palm sugar), and a pat of butter on top finished it off. I had some fresh strawberries that I fogot to sprinkle on... darn it! It is VERY creamy so next time I'll use half water to soak it. Nice recipe!

    I had steel cut oats in my cabinet but I'm not sure why. I decided to try this out and it is delicious! I used skim milk. It mentions cooking to desired consistency, but I didn't really know what I desired, so I just kept stirring until it looked like it wasn't going to reduce anymore. Not sure if I was supposed to, but I stirred continuously to prevent the milk from burning in the bottom of the nonstick. Thanks, I'll make this again!

    This does have a nice creamy texture. I used non-fat dry milk powder reconstituted with the proper amount of water thus reducing the fat grams as well as the calories. Instead of brown sugar I used the new brown sugar blend by Splenda. It was a hearty, satisfying cereal that stays with you throughout the morning. Next time around, I will probably add some dried fruit and/or nuts.
