    I love eating oatmeal for breakfast during the winter months, so thank you for this!

    Kristen, this is a fantastic line-up! My family LOOOOVES oatmeal, and there are so many awesome, healthy recipes here to try! Gretchen and I are so excited that you included our 10-Minute Pumpkin Pie Oatmeal – thank you, thank you!!! It’s really quick and easy, but comfortingly delicious (especially with the sweet-tart cranberries). It’s totally become a family favorite – hope your readers enjoy it as much as we do! 😀

    I live in Thailand and can’t get steel cut oats. I can get rolled, quick cook and instant oats so please, what breakfasts can I use these in?

    • Kristen on July 7, 2014

      Most of the recipes should work fine with regular oats you just may have to use less liquid in the recipes and/or reduce the cooking times since they cook much faster.

  5. Hungrylad on July 8, 2014

    Even the ones that use a crockpot?

    • Kristen on July 9, 2014

      I would look for traditional rolled oats (as opposed to instant) for the crockpot oats and use the water to pats ratio suggested on the packaging for the crockpot oats.
