Here is what we think went wrong:
- Too much water. I measured out four cups when I intended to try the recipe with only three cups. Then I did not have exactly a full cup of oatmeal and don't think I took out enough water to compensate.
- Cooked too long. I put the oatmeal on around 10:30 p.m. and we didn't get up until almost 9:00 a.m. Therefore, I think my oats just broke down too much.
Back to the drawing board with this recipe.
