People have raved about Scottish Oatmeal to me for years. I’ve tried steel cut oats and don’t really care for them – they are too grainy and I prefer creamier rolled oats.
However, Bob’s Red Mill recently sent me a bag of Scottish oats to try out. I’m not sure why I decided to open them this morning, but I am so glad I did! They are the perfect hybrid of multi-grain cereals and rolled oats. They have the blendedness of cereals and the sweet, doughiness of rolled oats – the best of both worlds. SCORE!
I cooked 1/4 a cup on the stove with 2 parts water/1 part milk plus a whole banana and a pinch of salt. Ready in 5 minutes!
Mix-ins included a sprinkle of cinnamon and vanilla.
Perfection!! Loved the sticky sweetness of the oats, the crunch of the granola and the savory love of the BB.
Today is going to be a bit happy busy:

Hop to it!
