This is a great recipe! Made exactly as stated the first time and was 5 star, but since then have made minor changes to taste. I use a full 20oz can of crushed pineapple, draining the juice, but measure it and use as part of the water. Have tried different kinds and amounts of sweetener, but finally decided it does not need any sweetener. I have never cared for hot cereal, but this recipe has changed that! This freezes very well in individual containers. Just pop one in the microwave, and your meal is ready! I just have to comment on some of the negative feedback: For those who thought it was not sweet enough, I guess they must have been using it for a dessert, not a healthy breakfast (plus if you really want all that added sugar it's pretty easy to add more at the table). For those who ended up with too much water, check to make sure you were using STEEL CUT oats. For the ones that said the matchstick carrots didn't cook, the recipe calls for SHREDDED carrots (which you can do yourself!) I have made this several times since finding the recipe, and it has always cooked perfectly!
