Made this last night in a 6 cup jumbo muffin tin. Brought them in for my co-workers to try this a.m. since it's a cold (6 degrees) Monday morning. I used a bit more brown sugar per each cup and used 3-minute steel cut oats to shorten cooking time. These were fantastic! Thanks for a yummy, warm start to the day LOL.
