I just made this. I cut the amount of butter and syrup in half and used less than a cup of water. Really good, but I added fresh strawberries to create a GREAT breakfast meal... will make it again!

I used lite syrup instead of sugar free, but thought that this recipe was just so-so. The oatmeal did not taste as 'maple-y' as I would have hoped. The recipe was okay to try, but I wouldn't make this oatmeal again.

I used half the maple syrup and cinnamon, because I used a very high grade maple syrup. This tastes just like the ones you can buy. It's great!

Tastes amazing! I actually dislike oatmeal because it's so plain but this is full of flavor and amazing! Definitely going to make this again soon! The only thing is that I used instant oats and only half a tablespoon of butter and 1/8 of maple syrup.

If you use pure maple syrup, you only need 2 Tablespoons to make it sweet. I agree with others here: Great flavor combination for a healthy breakfast.

1 cup of water is too much for a 1/2 cup of oatmeal. I tried that and had to drain water out of the bowl. The recipe is fantastic though!

I used regular butter and real maple syrup (the kind that came out of a tree, not the fake "breakfast syrup" people put on their pancakes, and this is very good!

Great recipe, but what in the world is sugar free maple syrup?? That's what maple syrup is: sugar! I'm from Quebec where they make the stuff and saw that and it made me chuckle :-P The things they invent these days...

Very good recipe. I cut down on the butter a little and it was still great!
