I made a modified batch of SCOs (steel-cut oats) for this morning, adding powdered milk, diced apples, cinnamon, and brown sugar. IT WAS GOOD, although I need to work on the execution a bit. Cinnamon doesn’t mix well into liquid, and it winds up floating on top. Next time I think I’ll mix the cinnamon and sugar together separately, then toss the apple pieces in that mixture, like I do for the apple crisp. Maybe I’ll dissolve the powdered milk in the water first before I add it to the oats and apples. Anyway, I had a serving with plain yogurt and felt quite full; still do. The Youngest didn’t like it, to no one’s great surprise; Number One Son ate most of his, saying it was “all right;” and The Middle Child had seconds, so I think we’re on the right track.
