Oats, oats and oats! Breakfast and gluten free cookies!

My son loves oatmeal, especially steel cut oats, which is my favorite as well. This has been our breakfast for the last couple of days. Trader Joes Quick Cook Steel Cut Oats, sliced bananas, walnuts, maple syrup and soy milk. It still takes a good 15min. to cook although the directions say 7 min or so.
