creative, although not whole kernels, have you tried looking for "steel-cut oats"? Even though they are cut into pieces, they are the entire sum of the kernel. I can even find McCann's Irish Oatmeal on this side of the pond. However, I've now found bulk steel-cut oats at a local Mediterranean market at a lower price. Good luck finding them, or another worthy substitute.

Yes, I've seen steel-cut oats at a local grocery, but have never tried them. I'll add this to my list for next month. Thanks!

Ok, looking around our local QFC today I found John McCann's Steel Cut Oats. Does anyone have any experience with this brand? It was a bit pricey, so I feel the need to ask for recommendations.

I cook mine in my cheapo rice cooker. Just follow the proportions on the round box. I like to throw in golden raisins and some cinnamon at the same time.

Mmm.. Apple cinnamon oatmeal, sounds yummy! I have cinnamon on my shopping list for next month. Thank you :)

Creating variety: How do you spice up your oatmeal?

You will enjoy McCann's steel cut oats. They have a really nice chew to them.

I got mine at Costco, and almost have a lifetime supply. I think it was Princess Fiona who had the idea of cooking up a week's worth at a time in her rice cooker. I stole her idea.

Oh my gosh, I completely forgot about CostCo, I'll have a look there before doing any more shopping. Thank you for the recommendation, you might just have saved me some money :)

Ah pinhead oatmeal!!! That's what we call it here in UK. Didn't realise it was the whole kernel. Great! Very pleased about that. Thanks for this post.

Yes, I cook it up a week at a time. I put additions in the bottom of an airtight container, top with a serving of cooked oatmeal and stash in the fridge. Each morning I can have a different add in in no time at all with the microwave. You will need to add a tablespoon of water to help it loosen up before heating.

Oh, I had no idea you could do that with oatmeal. I like to cook things as needed because it gets me up and provides exercise before a meal.
