Oatmeal - trouble shooting help needed

I like "power oatmeal" (oatmeal with quinoa & almonds), I've eaten it at Bread Co., but am having problems when I make it at home.


The recipe I have calls for cooking the oats & quinoa together in milk

I have problems with getting the temp right.

too high and the milk scorches on the bottom of the ceramic pot (brown stuff left on the bottom)

too low and the quinoa doesn't cook completely -



Does anyone have any tips?

Have you tried a crock pot overnight? I've never done it but I have a friend who swears by this method for the "power oatmeal."

Please, please, please get the recipe for me.


I've love to have one that's been tried (and vouched for) ... at least by the friend of a friend

Re: Oatmeal - trouble shooting help needed

Do you soak the quinoa first? Or toast it, or just use it straight from the pack? I haven't made that recipe before but other recipes for different foods have required one or the other. Maybe either of those options would help it cook through.

Re: Oatmeal - trouble shooting help needed

I've soaked both the quinoa and oats overnight, before cooking
