This is one of those dishes that you have to have free time to make right. Best for a weekend, when you are not rushed. It is well worth the extra time, and you will love the bit of pecan taste that adding THIS PKN Original adds to the oatmeal.


  • 2 1/2 cups water plus additional as needed
  • 1 cup THIS PKN Original 
  • 1 cup  steel cut oats 
  • 1/4 teaspoon kosher salt 
  • Toppings (i.e. blueberries, strawberries, brown sugar)


  • Place 2 1/2 cups water and THIS PKN Original in a medium/large saucepan. Bring to a boil over high heat.
  • When  boiling, stir in the oats and salt. Return the mixture to a steady boil, then immediately reduce the heat to low so that the oats are at a gentle simmer. Don’t walk away from the pot at this point, as oats sometimes boil over. 
  • Gently simmer for 20 minutes, stirring occasionally and scraping along the bottom of the pan to prevent sticking.
  • For softer, creamier oats, continue cooking for 5 to 10 additional minutes, stirring every few minutes until the oatmeal is as tender as you like. If the oatmeal becomes thicker than you’d like, splash in a little extra water or THIS PKN Original to thin it out to your desired consistency.
  • Remove the oatmeal from the heat and let sit a few minutes to finish thickening.
  • Enjoy hot with any of your favorite toppings.
