Oatmeal originated in Scotland centuries ago and was different from our modern rolled oats. A coarse meal was produced by slowly grinding the kernel between two large mill stones. Many years ago, Bob visited Scotland and learned the art of stone milling at the historic, water-powered Preston Mill. Today, Bob's Red Mill Organic Scottish Oatmeal is produced in the same old fashioned way and contains all the health giving nutrients of the best quality oats from which it was ground--the germ, the oil and the fiber. The result is a surprisingly unique and flavorful hot cereal.
Today oats are widely accepted as nutritional powerhouses for dietary fiber and protein. Oats contain a special type of fiber that is especially good for the reduction of cholesterol called beta-glucan. Beta-glucans also aid in the support of the immune system and can help regulate blood sugar. They are also wonderful for soothing irritated skin when used in baths.
Scottish Oatmeal is the original porridge of ancient Scotland and has been a staple breakfast here at the mill for years. This whole grain oatmeal makes a deliciously, smooth and creamy hot cereal to start your morning off right and add fiber to your diet.

- The best oatmeal.
- I was never that much of a fan of porridge. The 'suck it through your teeth' texture of the so-called 'quick cook' products is almost repellant to me. However, I like the underlying sweetness of oats and decided to try this type of meal. It is the best without doubt. It cooks reasonably quickly, has a satisfying consistency and texture and tastes really good. I serve it to myself with a spoon
- Great tasting, don't microwave them
- I always cook my oats on the stovetop, but I used the microwave this time and made a double batch, 1/2c oats, 1.5c water for 3m on high. Perhaps this would work if you stir it every 30s or so, but it was rather explosive in my microwave and gelatinized quickly and did not mix well after 3m. Would recommend cooking stovetop, that works much better.||Great tasting, ate several hours ago and am sti
- Building muscle and good health
- I really enjoy these oats! The consistency, taste and ease of making really helps.||I am a amateur body builder mainly focused on being healthy and fit. Oats are said to be a great dietary addition to a muscle building diet. These taste wonderful! ||Thanks!!!
- Really Good!
- Love these oats so much we bought a case at the BRM store. Wonderfully filling and tasty.
- A Scottish Treat
- I was raised on Scottish oats and then forgot them for years. I came to these USA shores and needed to lower my Cholesterol and tried these and Loved them almost as good as grandma made. I also lowered my levels eatings these. Worth a try
- I tried this on a whim, since I once lived in Scotland, and love anything Scottish...this is a more course oatmeal, which is wonderful...I add a spoonful of Ground Flaxseed and sugar, using milk instead of water.....eat this with a 12 grain slice of toast and an apple....terrific breakfast! Keeps you satisfied way past lunch time....Can't say anything negative about it...
- The Real Thing
- These oats are the real deal for porridge or any traditional Scottish recipe that calls for anything but "pin oats." I used to live over that way and bought my oats fresh from an old water mill, where they were ground the same way as when the mill was built a few hundred years ago.||Bob's version is every bit their equal. They hold up to both careful and indifferent handling and, unlike many oatme
- Mmmm mmmm!
- Delicious! I make with skim milk instead of water and top with a tablespoon of peanut butter.
- This is real Scottish \"parritch\"
- This needs to be stirred constantly while cooking. I use an induction cooker for this and it works great. The results are definitely worth the effort.
- Absolutely delicious
- My son usually doesn't like oatmeal made with flakes, but he likes very much this scottish oatmeal (with maple syrup). It's delicious. From now on, we only use this brand.
- Love this stuff
- My everyday breakfast. I love to fix this in the microwave with a pinch of salt and then mix with blueberries and bananas and a tsp of honey. Wonderful flavor and so good for you. I switch between the Scottish oatmeal and the steel cut oatmeal. The Scottish is quicker to make but the flavor is essentially the same, just the choice of crunchier or smoother. Highly recommend both products.|I wa
- When I first tried Scottish Oatmeal at the restaurant at Bob's Red Mill I was so pleasantly surprised! I've always tried to like oatmeal, but could never really get past the texture. Turns out I was just using the wrong kind! Great flavor and creamy texture. I was hesitant to cook it in the microwave, but it turned out just great and was done in five minutes. This is now my everyday breakfast food
- As a type 2 diabetic it is nice to eat oatmeal without having to but any sugar or bitter on it to make it taste good. Quaker oats just gets to a point where you need something on them to make them palatable.
- With love from Scotland
- I have not liked the oatmeal of my youth, but found that I loved the "porrage" in Scotland when traveling there 2 summers ago! When I came across this product, it was like Scotland all over again! Kudos! I also like the fact that I can make a 1/2 serving, divide that cooked product into thirds and have "warm up" for breakfast with the same great taste! I use a little butter, sorgam, and fresh peac
- Great texture and quick cooking!
- Never been a huge oatmeal fan but this is fantastic. It cooks quickly and has great texture. Perfect for cold mornings.
- I simply follow the directions for stove top cooking. But I omit salt, add 1 tbsp of flaxseed oil (after the cooking is finished) and 1 tbsp of honey. I love the texture of this cereal! I am not a fan of the texture of rolled oats. So this product is a God send!
- Great Oatmeal!!
- I love it! Great texture and exceptional flavor.I usually always have quick oats for breakfast until I tried Bob's Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal...I'm so glad I found this product.You can cook this in the microwave too which is great if you have a tight schedule in the morning.Outstanding quality.I will definitely buy some more.
- Delicious! Makes a wonderful breakfast!
- I make it with non-fat milk and a dash of cinnamon and the taste is out of this world. And, as a diabetic who has to count carbs what a delicious, healthy way to get full without the added sugar and carbs of other inferior products.
- The absolute tastiest ...
- The absolute tastiest oatmeal we've eaten. My wife and I each use this nearly every morning for breakfast. I prefer it with no added flavorings. The wife adds a bit of Splenda and cinnamon.
