Scale accordingly I've also started experimenting with whole oat groats which are lower GI and healthier. To do that, cook them in water @ 90C for about 20mins, then leave overnight, then follow the recipe above. I’m also mortified at the idea of blitzing the oats :)

Try just a few pulses, or reduce the cooking time a little. By all means leave the oats whole and cook on reverse - but I have found that kids prefer them smooth. If you follow the final tip, cleaning the bowl should be easy. Also, the "Quick Oats" seem to be around $4 for a 500g packet, whereas I buy ordinary rolled oats for $1.80 per kg - about a quarter of the price.

My TM consultant strongly recommended against blitzing the oats first. I've tried it both ways. To my tastes, the results if you blitz the oats are horrid: glue rather than porridge. So I use whole oats and reverse speed 1. The results are very good, but not worth the extra cleaning and effort compared with simply microwaving quick oats and water in a bowl for 2 minutes, then stirring, which is my usual method. I eat porridge almost every morning, so the extra effort of cleaning the TM is significant. I’ve made porridge in my Thermomix a few times.
