This is a good recipe for a cold morning in lieu of my usual smoothie. Very quick and easy. I used 1 tablespoon of raisins & walnuts, rather than 2 of the dates and walnuts and it was still good. I added a few tablespoons of unsweetened apple juice to keep the oatmeal from sticking.

How much cinnamon would be considered a high dose? OK Ceylon Cinnamon -- one more thing to consider ...

My favorite breakfast food...however I prefer to place pumpkin pie spice in the water and cook the oatmeal in it and add apples and raisins.

Absolutely one of my favorite breakfasts! My daughter likes it too, which means we eat it at least once a week, every week.

I've been a Nutritarian for exactly one week and I love this breakfast! (This coming from someone who always swore she hated oatmeal!)

This is almost exactly my Steel Cut oat recipe, but instead of dates I put two over ripened bananas. Also a dash of cardamon gives it a nice kick.

I had never liked the texture of steel cut oats until I thought of putting them in the blender after cooking, along with a little soy milk and some soaked raisins. Now, I can't believe how tasty it is. Sort of like eating a decadent cookie dough! Not everyone would like it like this-- so much like batter -but to me it's divine.

My favorite oatmeal contains the following: Oatmeal, boiling water, sliced peaches (frozen), dried apricots (sliced up), raisins, chopped apple, and walnuts. YUM!

Hubby and I just tried this and loved it even though I am not an oatmeal fan! I had a huge apple so only used one apple. I think I'll try doubling the cinnamon and vanilla for a little more flavor. This is definitely be a repeat!

I love this. I make it very often. I just started eating this way last week and have made it 3 times. It does taste like an apple desert. I didn't know dates were such good sweeteners.

I love this recipe.  I have cooked this for my guests in the mornings and they all want the recipe.  They're shocked when I tell them there is no sugar.  Thank you for sharing!

anyone ever microwaved this? I disonr use a microwave until I started eating another ETL oat recipe. Now, I don’t even want to mess up a pot. Love the one bowl action.

I generally double these recipes, which altogether makes 5 servings, store, and eat one fifth each weekday am, heated about 90 seconds in microwave, with a splash of almond milk.  Delish.

Very nice!  I doubled it, used Honeycrisp apples, and added some ground nutmeg too.  Reheated each AM with a splash of almond milk, a great breakfast for the week.

Really good, I only used one apple cause two seemed to be too much.  It was awsome, from a new nutritarian who is finding it really hard to find any of this food good!!  : )

I batch cook a large quantity of steel cut oats so that I can scoop it out for breakfast.  What would that serving amount be?  I usually ccok up 1-1/2 cups and it lasts for a week.  Maybe I am serving myself too small of portions?

Is there a problem with not peeling apples? I always like to use the peel for extra fibre.

We love this recipe. Have been using it for the base then adding or substituting  nuts, seeds and berries as our tastes dictate. Cannot go back to plain oatmeal.

Three years after first making this, it's still my go-to breakfast!  It's morphed into something really delicious:  I always put in the apples, cinnamon and a medjool date, but I like to throw in a pear or peach, and I dump in ground flax seed, whole chia seeds, chopped walnuts, and unsweetened coconut flakes.  I cook it in my instant pot and make a three day batch, then can just reheat it for the next couple of days.  My daughter likes to add banana slices to top hers off.  You can really have fun with this and it always tastes sweet and good, good, good!!!

I see nothing about GLYPHOSATE in regular oats. Wouldn't it be wise to suggest that all oats be organic? Glyphosate from RoundUp has been known to be in regular oats and distroys stomach good bacteria as well as causing NON HODGKINS LYMPHOMA.
