This recipe solved my healthy breakfast issue because I go to the gym in the morning before work and don't have time to make breakfast each morning. So I make a batch of these every other Sunday in a 12 muffin tin and freeze them. That way I can grab one, plus a small yogurt and a piece of fruit on my way out the door. By the time I get to work it is defrosted, although sometimes I stick it in the microwave to warm it up. I change the recipe each batch so it doesn't get boring. Banana nut is my fav, but pumpkin, craisins, pepitas and pumpkin pie spices are good in the fall. Add apple pie spices if you use applesauce or shredded apples. I use old fashioned rolled oats and cook it 10 mins longer, 2% milk, half the sugar and no butter.
usually make steel cut oats in mini crock, so i was looking for something different. this was great! took others' suggestions using mashed banana, blueberries, cinnamon, craisins and 1/4c sugar. i did add sunflower seeds instead of walnuts which might be better on the top, and used olive oil for the butter. baked for a good 30 min, and was a bit creamy on the bottom, but maybe that's how it's supposed to be. ? still good. will make again.
Funny I recently rated another oatmeal recipe as not being sweet enough, and this one borders on being too sweet, but I say borders and it is easy to cut back on the sugar next time. I love warm oatmeal in the morning but because I work I don't have time during the week to make it and I stay away from pre-packaged foods as much as possible, so I don't eat the packets. This is a great solution, stores well as leftovers and warms up really well in the microwave. The only real complaint I have is although this is so yummy, for the calories I don't find it as filling as a cup of oatmeal. But it will still remain part of my morning lineup.
Meh, a lot of work/ingredients for this waste of oatmeal. Too sweet, just too much invasion of what should be a purist grain. I'll stick with my imported Flahavann's from Ireland porridge, adding a little brown sugar, raisins, and a few walnuts......yummy and only 2.15 min in the microwave or Jamie Deen's steel cut oats recipe. NOT THIS ONE!
I am eating them while typing!! So delicious and creamy! I didn't find them over sweet at all.....I also added cinnamon, and vanilla, and 1/3 blueberries since I hate rasins.....I don't usually have nuts in the house,,but, found a small bag of hazelnuts and added a few.....I also used fat free Lactaid milk......next time I will definitley add more blueberries.......I eat oatmeal and fruit every morning , and this is a nice change.....will be making it often :) Ps. Will be adding more cinnamon next time.....I put in 1 tablespoon vanilla and love the hint of vanilla taste....
Delicious, but I have to admit I was skeptical; thinking is it a bar or what?! I too halved the sugar, knowing in advance, I don't like anyting too sweet and it was the perfect sweetness for me. Baked the night before, put in refrigerator and warmed the next morning, had a little over half a serving with egg whites and a cup of coffee, great breakfast. Will def. be making again, trying some of the different variations that other reviewers suggested.
This oatmeal was perfectly sweet in my opinion. I didn't have applesauce so I used sour cream because it was the closest thing I had in terms of texture but in hindsight I should have used mashed bananas. Next time I will try to broil the oatmeal during the last couple minutes of cooking to get a crispier top
