I really like the different textures with this combination. Honey would be a good substitute for the maple syrup. I just happen to have a maple syrup addiction.

If the instructions are not available, a suggestion is 1/4 cup or 60mls of medium course rolled oats to 270ml of fluid (either milk or water, or even a mixture of both). Normally this should be brought to the boil over a gentle heat and stirred constantly for 3-5 mins. It may take a little longer, depending on how thick you like it.
Then add the following toppings (in this order):
1 tsp of cinnamon - either leave sprinkled on top or stir through
A small handful of raisins - again stir through or leave on top
1 tbsp. golden linseed sprinkled on top (available from health food shops & sometimes called "flaxseed") - great for crunch
Drizzle of maple syrup to taste
1 fresh fig cut into 8 pieces scattered on top.
