  • Incredible!

    I eat this every AM. I use less water, no butter and add egg white for protein... 1/2 cup. It is super tasty and I feel very healthy eating it! It makes about 2 weeks of breakfasts and keeps well in the fridge, heats up in the micro for a quick eat. - 12/31/10

    Very satisfying breakfast. I mixed in a small container of blueberry-pomegranate applesauce and that really smooths out the oatmeal and gives it a great sweetness. - 5/1/11

  • Actually, you CAN use old fashioned oats for this, just use exactly twice the water as you do oats. I use 2 cups oats and 4 cups water and apples and brown sugar.

  • I use my rice cooker to make hot cereals like this. It cooks faster, and there's never a boil-over to make a mess on the stovetop. - 6/23/14

  • We hate the crust and don't stir it back in. We don't spray ahead -- it didn't seem to help. Crust forming seemed to be a matter of how long. - 4/29/14
