This came out so good! I never leave reviews but if my 1 year old is asking for seconds (which NEVER happens) then it s a definite hit. Didn t have pecans and be as weren t as ripe as I wanted but it was still delicious. I did add a little canned milk to their individual servings at the end. Read More

This came out great! I toasted (double) the pecans with butter in the saucepan first. Removed the pecans then added the milk and spices. Didn't really worry about the cooking times listed in the directions - just cook the oats until you have your desired consistency. Keep an eye on it and keep stirring otherwise it will likely bubble over onto your stove top. Read More

This is perfect. I am the only oatmeal eater in this house so I used the single serving and it was perfect. I did not use the nuts as I did not have any but I will in the future. Perfect bowl of oatmeal. Read More
