This recipe is also directly out of Nourishing Traditions book.  I have this for breakfast every other day.  You can get creative with the oats used.  I like half and half steel cut and old fashioned.  Always use fresh oats.  If you have old oats in the cupboard, toss them.  This recipe is for 2 people:

1 cup oats - see note above
1 cup warm  water
1-2 Tbs whey (see below recipe)  - you can substitute yogurt or lemon.

Add ingredients, stir, and cover overnight.  At least 6 hours is good.

The next morning, boil 1 cup of water with a pinch of salt.

Follow Youtube video for on-stove instructions.

Add toppings and you are done!  Today, I used 2 Tbs extra virgin coconut oil, 2 Tbs local honey (as seen in the video), then some homemade cream cheese, and cacao nibs top the bowls.

Get creative!  You can use any in fruits, berries, frozen or otherwise.  I always add some oil or butter, local honey, and some fruit or cacao nibs.  Don't think that it is fattening.  Fat in the diet does not equal fat on your person contrary to popular opinion!
