This was a nice, filling breakfast that I really enjoyed. I didn't sweeten it beyond the brown sugar because I don't like Splenda and didn't think it needed to be sweeter. I used milk instead of water for protein and chopped up a pear and throw it in. I'm glad, because I was a bit bored by the end. Still, it was good!

Made this for my son and I this morning. It was enough for both of us. I followed the recipe as written but used Splenda brown sugar blend and used more then the recipe called for as my son didn't think it was sweet enough. This cooked up fast in the microwave. We both enjoyed it.

Did this overnight in my crockpot using steel cut oats. I didn't use sugar as I was on a Daniel Fast, but put in raisins for the sweet I was missing. Was good, probably not sweet enough for most people... plan on making it again this week with the brown sugar or stevia. I love how I can put it in the night before and it's ready for me in the morning (I use a really small crockpot for two people).

This is an excellent recipe! I'm crazy about all sort of dried fruit therefore I added in raisin, sultanas and cranberry. The mixed fruit taste is fabulous! I substituted milk with homemade soymilk... it taste amazing good! Thanks for sharing this recipe.

This didn't hit the spot for me. I like my oatmeal relatively sweet so I added an additional tablespoon of brown sugar. This didn't really help. Maybe I should try nuts and milk like others suggested.

Very good! I added more pumpkin, 1/4 c. total, and a tablespoon of chopped walnuts and 1/2 c. fat free milk on top. Next time I'll add a pinch of salt, I thought it could use it. Love the creamy texture and generous sized portion.

Spicy, warm, tasty. The three perfect words to describe this oatmeal. I topped mine with pecan pis glazed pecans, and ate every last bit of my serving. Perfect! Thank you for posting.

So delicious! I left out the Splenda, and stirred in 1/4 cup fat free milk after cooking. Couldn't believe how good it was! Thanks for posting!
