I’ve had quite a few people ask me how I cook my steel cut oats, so here’s a quick recipe for you. And if you’ve never tried steel cut oats, I highly recommend you do! They’re my favorite 🙂 My daughter and I share a bowl every morning.
3 c water
1 c organic steel cut oats
1 tbsp butter (You can omit the butter to keep it vegan or try it with coconut oil)
1 c organic unsweetened vanilla coconut milk (So Delicious is my favorite!)
Sweetener of your choice. I use raw honey.
In a small pot, bring 3 cups of water to a boil. In a separate pot, melt 1 tbsp of butter over medium heat. Add the steel cut oats and toast for 1-2 minutes. Now, add the boiling water to your oats. Cover and let simmer until most of the water has evaporated. Turn the burner off and stir in the coconut milk. Cover and let it sit until the oats have thickened.
Time to eat! Scoop some oats into a bowl and top with whatever fruits you’re craving. I drizzle a little honey on top and you’re set!
Tips: You can use regular milk instead of the coconut milk. Almond milk is also good! Instead of using butter, you can use coconut oil or omit the butter completely. The options for toppings are almost limitless. Today I used fresh mango, blueberries, blackberries, and raw almonds. Yum!
