I was introduced to quaker oats maple and brown sugar instant by a friend. I have found myself eating it on a fairly regular basis ever since. It is easy to make, tastes great and is a warm, hearty breakfast during this cold winter. I find that made with water it comes out perfectly thick and creamy.The only negative if you could call it that is that you need to watch it in the microwave should you choose to make it that way. I found a tremendous difference between my friend’s and mines (all are different that’s a given) in their’s no matter what I did I always had a spillover in mine the 2 min is fine with no spillover or mess whatsoever.

Great stuff, easy preparation, seemingly healthy, kids love it

We all just love this Quaker oat meal. It takes 2 minutes per bowl in the microwave (so if you are 5 people it takes a little time), is seemingly healthy, and our junior (3 years) loves it, too.

It can be prepared with water, milk, or a mixture of the two. More milk makes it thicker and smoother.

A kind of downside is that the consistency (“thickness”) depends on the mixture of water and milk, the microwave’s energy, and even the bowl shape and size (probably it’s all about the diameter). One needs to experiment a little with the timing the microwave is set to to prepare it to one’s liking.
It mixes better if you stir it after a minute in the microwave.

All in all, we all love it, and in particular the brown sugar flavor.

New and Improved Recipe anything BUT improved.

I have been eating this stuff since the ’70s or shall I say HAD been. They now only have the New and Improved Recipe which is terrible! I thought it went bad– then I see on the box, new and improved. Who approved this. Anyone remember New Coke— well, I see this happening again only with Quaker, Inc. I will no longer buy this stuff until they go back to the old recipe.
