  1. This looks good but I have never enjoyed oatmeal made with rolled oats. Would it work with steel cut oats which is what I prefer to use, especially as the rolled oats are more processed then the steel cut oats.

    • We understand, Lynn. You are welcome to change some of the ingredients based on your personal preference. Although, please remember that doing so may change some steps and results from the original recipe, since steel cut oats cook longer and is more chewy than rolled oats. Let us know how it goes!
