Yeah, they were a bit chewy...but that's what the directions on the back said to do (if I chose not to do the stovetop method). But like I said above, to TNB, I haven't eaten oatmeal in about 30 years so I really don't know what I'm aiming at. Just trying to eat healthier.
When I make the instant Quaker Oats for my son, I sometimes put an egg white in it. And that makes that a little creamier.
But almond butter and a drizzle of cream sounds better.
