The spices are a little harsh and the salt is a little high. If I were to do this again, I'd use 1-2 green cardamom pods split down the side to let the liquid in and a cinnamon stick or two to infuse cinnamon and cardmom without beating you over the head with it. I'd also reduce salt to 1/8t. Otherwise, interesting and different!
"Rolled oats simmered in sweet, spice-infused milk make an exquisite breakfast cereal,"Katzen notes. Oat bran not only boosts the fiber, it also makes the oatmeal creamy and thick.
