    Something else. I found that mty oats didn't cook that well on medium heat in the microwave...if you do 3 minutes on the highest heat, stir, followed by 2 more minutes on medium heat, allowto stand for 2 minutes before serving you get the perfect porridge  -  19 Apr 2009


    I actually find this too filling, so use 1/3 cup oatmeal and 3/4 cup water. As others suggested, I substituted ground flax seed for the oil. I also left out the honey. I didn't have soy milk, so added some cottage cheese and about 1/4 cup berries. I have had this for 5 days in a row and think I could and will eat it every day for breakfast. EDIT: I first reviewed this 10 months ago and I am still eatin it at least 4-5X a week. It is healthy and fills me up so I'm never snack through the mornings. UPDATE: It's been 2 years and I still eat this at least 4-5X a week, with a big spoon of cinnamon mixed in.  -  28 Nov 2006  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Great recipe - I added some cinnamon, nutmeg, and a dash of vanilla extract. Instead of topping it with soy milk, I topped it with a huge spoonful of fat free honey flavored organic greek yogurt. This was very filling and very healthy.  -  15 Apr 2010  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
