I was wondering how you managed to cook steel cut oats in ten minutes! Even with the microwave I can't imagine they would have been tender and creamy enough.
And yeah, there's usually a bit of scum when you cook them.

You can buy those at any health food store.
Almond butter is just almonds and a push of a button on your food processor (or in my case the coffee grinder), though.

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.
