I am NOT an oatmeal fan. I have been searching for over a year to find a way to include oatmeal into my diet. I just don't like oatmeal. I tried steel-cut oats and able to eat a bite or two, but in the end the texture just is a challenge for me. I found this recipe in Bon Appetite (Sept. 2007) and thought it worth a try. It was great! Cook the oatmeal, chill, cut into pieces and cook on a griddle. While it is a two step recipe, it is quick and easy and worth the little bit of planning required. The cakes are even better served with fruit or yogurt. I will never be a big oatmeal fan, but this is a recipe I can include in my meal plan and actually enjoy. Give it a try, your colon will thank you!
