Simply so, how can I thicken my oatmeal?
Second, you could add a spoonful or two of oat flour or oat bran, which you can either buy in a store or make yourself by grinding up your regular oats. This will thicken up your oatmeal without having to be cooked for a long time.
Secondly, is oatmeal better with milk or water? Simple tip #1: Make oatmeal with milk (or a non-dairy alternative) versus water. Not only does oatmeal made with water taste way less delicious, but you're also missing out on the extra protein staying power that milk will add to the breakfast. Water will also make the oats more gummy instead of creamy.
Secondly, are Steel cut oats supposed to be watery?
For every 1 cup of steel cut oats, you'll need 2 1/2 to 3 cups of liquid, depending upon how thick you'd like them to be (less liquid = thicker steel cut oatmeal). I like to do a mix of water and milk to make the steel cut oats extra creamy.
What should the consistency of oatmeal be?
You want the consistency of a nice porridge. The individual oats will be discrete units, obviously, but you want them in a paste-like binding of hot, congealed liquid. Watery oatmeal isn't worth a damn. Cook it until it's thick enough to hold a G.I.
