One of my favorite breakfasts (or sometimes even for lunch) is Steel Cut Oats. So warm, nourishing and tasty it really satisfies me. They are easy to make and well worth the short wait. Here is my favorite way of cooking them.
Steel cut oats are SO much better than processed oats, and adding in some nuts and cinnamon make them something really special. It is one of my favorite things to eat for breakfast.
1/2 cup organic steel cut oats (buy some here)
2 cups mixed almond milk & water (buy some here)
1/4 cup chopped walnuts (buy some here)
1/8 cup raisins (buy some here)
1/8 cup slivered almonds (buy some here)
1 tsp monk fruit/stevia leaf sweetener (buy some here)
1/2 tsp cinnamon (buy some here)
Detailed instructions are in the video. First add the milk to a small saucepan with the heat on medium-high. I use a mix of almond milk and water but you can also substitute with any other milk of your choosing. Let the milk heat to boiling, then add in the steel cut oats. Stir gently. Turn the heat down to Medium and set a timer for 10 minutes. Stir the mixture occasionally. At the 10 minute mark, drop the heat down to just above low and mix in your add-ins. I typically use walnuts, almonds, raisins, cinnamon and sometimes a sweetener. These are all optional and can be switched out for whatever suits your fancy. You can use honey, maple syrup, coconut sugar or whichever sweetener you prefer. You can use cranberries or blueberries in place of the raisins if you like. You can use nutmeg instead of cinnamon if you are feeling spicy, The options are endless. Stir occasionally for the next 15 minutes or until it is to the desired consistency. This is a dairy free, vegan, heart healthy recipe that also has a low glycemic index. A wonderful way to start your day!
