Yum, I'm going to try this! Lately I've been adding a handful of frozen blueberries (they thaw really fast) Or chunks of banana and chopped walnuts.

Re: Do you like oatmeal? Tried this for DD this morning..

I didn't find steel cut oats. I just got regular organic slow cook oats from the bins at Whole Foods.
Does that count?
Answer quick cause I'm on my way to start my oatmeal.......

Well, I used regular, non-quick cook oats, put it on at about 10pm and at 6:30 am they were burnt and mush... I sent DH to the real store tonight for steel cut!

Re: Do you like oatmeal? Tried this for DD this morning..

lol, funny women!!!!
I had to look up on the top shelf at king soopers (same as krogers) mine are made by quaker, its in a dark blue container (shame shape as regular) Instead of being flat, they are like little round thingies. Want me to ship some out from colorado???
Maybe add a couple extra cups of water, to help it not burn. Mine was really thick this morning...

Re: Do you like oatmeal? Tried this for DD this morning..

OMG, I didn't realize this would cause such a huge fuss!

Here's an explanation on the difference between steel cut oats and rolled oats:
http://www.netrition.com/mccanns_oats_page.html

Basically, steel cut oats are round instead of flat because they're not as processed. They also have more nutrition to them due to less processing. And they take longer to cook (hence why they work well for this crock pot recipe).

Hope it works out well for all of you!

jillkuster - Sorry you had to make an extra trip! I hope your oatmeal worked!

Yeah, pretty important that they're the "real" oatmeal and not quick cook oatmeal.
Dang! Well, this kind of oatmeal I bought is good for meat loaf and cookies

I have to look further then cause I have never noticed them at the store

Where in Iowa do you live? At my local Hy-Vee they have steel cut oats in the health food section in the bins and prepackgedwith the oeganic cereal AND in the regular cereal aisle in a small blue container (made by Quaker and says Steel Cut Oats in yellow).
