4 1/2 cups water (enough to just cover the oats)
3 TBSP whey (or yogurt)
3-4 TBSP ground almonds (or other nuts)
Combine ingredients in a glass container, then cover. Let sit at room temperature for 12-24 hours.
On the stovetop, heat 3 3/4 cups of water to boiling, and stir in soaked oatmeal mixture. Cook for about 5 minutes, stirring to keep it from sticking to the pot, until it is the desired consistency. Top with a little bit of real maple syrup and milk and serve.
*Makes a LOT of oatmeal; we eat half of it for breakfast one day, and save enough left-overs to make Fried Oatmeal the next morning.
