I enjoyed this. Really easy. Because it is so hearty, I think it makes more than than 6 servings though. Definitely add brown sugar and toasted nuts as a topping.

Super easy, great thick-and-creamy steel cut oat texture...my only issue was that it could stand to be a bit sweeter (I'm a slow-cooker, steel cut oat fanatic and most call for 1/4 c sugar or more for that much oats). However, that's easily remedied by adding your own extra sugar after it's done cooking - and also lets you customize/control how sweet it is. Will definitely make it again!

I found this recipe last night while looking for something else. It looked easy, and I had all the ingredients, so I put it together before going to bed. My 3-year-old has enjoyed pumpkin since he started eating solid food, and this was no exception. I had no difficulty getting him to eat his breakfast this morning. I found it to be a little bit rich, but overall, a very tasty breakfast.

Pleasant flavor but more like a pudding than an oatmeal.
