Scottish Oatmeal is the original porridge of ancient Scotland. This true whole grain oatmeal is stone ground, not rolled, on our century-old mills.


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 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.

  1. Love it, but have advice

    by FirBrookFarm on 03 Sat,2017


    I adore this oatmeal. It keeps my temperamental tummy calm and happy. However, if I try to microwave it, it erupts! So I boil it in a saucepan. Tip: you won't get a single lump if you sprinkle it over the surface of the boiling water (while stirring).

  2. Best way to eat oats

    by MLC on 03 Wed,2016


    I've enjoyed rolled oats and steel cut oats, but Scottish style oatmeal is now my favorite. It is incredibly creamy and satisfying and the flavor is so much better than other oats. Give it a try!

  3. Best yet!

    by Yossarian on 02 Thu,2016


    This is the best. I have a hard time believing that the style of grind could change the flavor : do you think it's the 1/2 inch of butter i float on the top

  4. A must in my diet!

    by Nadine on 12 Wed,2015


    Fantastic taste and product!! Nothing like the "gelatinous mush" of regular oatmeal!I even make a pot of it and use the leftovers later with butter and sea salt as a side dish instead of rice or grits. Love it!

  5. Helps with blood sugar maintenance

    by JenniMiki on 09 Thu,2015


    This is my favorite oatmeal! I love to make it with pecans, dried fruit, cinnamon, coconut oil, butter, salt, and honey. It helps me to maintain my blood sugar. Thanks for a great product!

  6. Wonderfully Flavorful and Healthy

    by Ted on 06 Sat,2011

    I love this product! It's wonderfully flavorful and satisfying. My local [...] in Arroyo Grande seems to have discontinued it. I hope it is available nearby.

  7. The Only Oatmeal I'll Eat!

    by CincoBayou on 02 Thu,2011

    So easy to microwave it! I use 1/4 cup to 3/4 cup water, 2 dashes of sea salt using a deep bowl (to keep from overflowing)I microwave it for 90 seconds and then stir. Nuke it again for another minute or so...stir then cover the bowl and let it sit for 3 minutes to finish cooking.|Be sure to watch it while cooking so it doesn't boil over the side of the bowl.|Perfect!|What's GREAT about this Scott

  8. The Best Breakfast

    by Teri on 01 Thu,2011

    I've been eating this oatmeal every morning for several years. I mix in a 1/4 c ricotta cheese, cinnamon and agave nectar to a serving of oatmeal, and this makes for a tasty and healthy breakfast which provides me with protein. Best Breakfast Ever

  9. I'll never go back to 'regular' oatmeal

    by Cara on 12 Mon,2010

    I discovered this product after returning from a trip to Scotland, where I loved the oatmeal. I love the hearty taste and non-gelatinous texture of this oatmeal. I'm very sorry to report that my usual local stores that carried this oatmeal seem to have stopped carrying it one by one - so I think I have to convince more people of how great it is! I really don't want to go back to the old oatmeal!

  10. Never liked oatmeal till I tried this.

    by Rita on 12 Wed,2010

    I never liked oatmeal (even though I knew it was good for me) because of its texture and it just didn't taste right. Someone suggested I try Bob's Red Mill Scottish Oatmeal...and it totally changed my mind. Both my husband and I have been eating it ever since. If you're turned off by oatmeal, try this one before you give up.

  11. Creamiest Oatmeal Ever

    by Whole Foodie on 11 Tue,2010

    I've been eating a lot of the other excellent Bob's cereals (Mighty Tasty with Sorghum syrup is another favorite) but when I tried this oatmeal this morning I was absolutely blown away. It is soooo creamy and flavorful. I added a little milk and maple syrup to it, but it would be fine just plain.||I also have found that this and other hot breakfast cereals cook really well in a small rice cooker

  12. Wonderful oatmeal

    by MrsSmith on 11 Sat,2010

    The running joke in my family is my oatmeal tastes like "bark", because of course nothing is as good as grandma's oatmeal! BUT! that all changed with Bob's Scottish Oatmeal. Yes once again I am queen of the kitchen HA! this is amazing oatmeal, microwave or stove top it doesn't take much to have a delish dish of warm oatmeal that you can add 1/2 & 1/2, honey, brown sugar or dried berries - whateve

  13. My Every Day Breakfast!

    by Sherry on 11 Sun,2010

    I literally have this oatmeal every single day of my life--for breakfast! I've been eating it every day for a little over a year, and I still love it! I know I am eating something healthy, filling, and yummy! I use 1/3 cup of oatmeal to 1 cup of water and add nothing but 1 packet of Splenda and 1/2 tsp. of butter. I never get tired of it! I buy out the store everytime I go--one of our local s

  14. Wonderful breakfast

    by Pam on 10 Sun,2010

    During our visit to Scotland this year, our host provided Scottish oatmeal. It was wonderful and am so glad to find this product in the US. I love the texture as I find it much better than the rolled oats. A great hearty breakfast and I would recommend to everyone.

  15. Great taste

    by Lucy on 09 Sat,2010

    Being Scottish born and bred we get to know what are good oats and what are average. These oats are lovely, have a fantastic flavour and are very healthy since they release energy slowly. Using both a microwave or stove top produces great results. Thanks

  16. Yummy and Great Texture

    by Mark on 09 Thu,2010

    I like rolled oats, but this has a better texture. It has a bit of chewiness like steel-cut oats, but it's much faster and easier to cook.|I put 1/4 cup of this with 3/4 cup water in the microwave for 5:30. Easy. Then I drop in dark chocolate or chopped dates or blueberries or a slice of apple pie (I know, that's decadent, but it's also delicious).|I wish my local stores carried the organic versio

  17. Best ever oatmeal

    by Happy Scot on 08 Thu,2010

    I made 'brose' with it as my father did every morning. He added a little boiling water to 3 tablespoons in a bowl, put a little butter on top, covered it with a saucer and let it stand for a few minutes. He added whole milk before eating it.|I confess to adding a little half and half after cooking it in the microwave with a little boiling water (no butter)|For the diet-conscious, a little oatmeal

  18. I Lucked Out!!!

    by evath on 08 Wed,2010

    My local grocer is remodeling and clearing items off it's shelves fortunately, I was able to purchase 8 different Bob's Red Mill products WAY, WAY below cost! I have wanted to try your products for a long time now, but as a single-mom on a limited budget, I had to skip over your products in favor of those more economical. Now, look what you have started! I've come searching for coupons to enable

    by H. Jacobs on 01 Sat,2010


    This tastes just like it did in Scotland. They serve it to you every morning. I loved it then and love it now. Thanks

    by Lisa Watson on 01 Sat,2010


    Bob's Scottish Oatmeal is so far above the typical rolled oat hot cereal, I will never go back. Very unique flavor. Favorite breakfast at our house (6 kids).

  23. The organic Scottish ...

    by John Fullmer on 01 Sat,2010

    The organic Scottish Oatmeal was absolutely outstanding. The taste took me back to my youth growing up in a Scotch-Irish community where we frequently had oatmeal that tasted just like this.
