Well, I am sad to say that I did not like this version of my healthy peanut butter cup. The steel cut oats did not soak up all of the milk the way I prefer. I had to add so much protein powder, that it turned very gritty. I will only make this recipe either by cutting back on the milk or only with rolled oats. I still ate it because I have limited time in the morning and was starving! I cannot wait to make up for the recipe this week. So, I do not recommend this version at all - but if you look back to previous posts, you will find the real and amazing version that I love so much!
