Why use steel cut oats? They get that creamy taste without the mushy & glue-like nastiness typical of regular oatmeals and also keeps the health benefits of the oats that you want! I can get them locally in the bulk food section for only 99 cents a pound, I bet you can too! Cheap!

3 cups boiling water
1/2 cup whole milk
1/2 cup plus 1 tablespoon low-fat buttermilk

1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
In a large saucepot, melt the butter and add the oats. Stir for 2 minutes to toast. Add the boiling water and reduce heat to a simmer. Keep at a low simmer for 25 minutes, without stirring.
Combine the milk and half of the buttermilk with the oatmeal. Stir gently to combine and cook for an additional 10 minutes. Spoon into a serving bowl and top with remaining buttermilk, brown sugar, and cinnamon.
