Yield: 4 servings
Steel cut oats, 1 cup
Water, 4 ½ cups
Fresh berries, your choice of blackberries,
raspberries, goji berries, blueberries, or elderberries
Cinnamon, ½ tsp
Nutmeg, ½ tsp
Nuts, your choice of walnuts, pine nuts, almonds,
peanuts, or cashews
Almond milk, to taste
In a medium saucepan bring water to a rolling boil. Add steel cut oils to the water, leave to cook for 1 minute, stirring often. Once oats have cooked for 1 minute remove from heat, cover, and let sit overnight. The next morning portion oats you are not going to eat immediately into an airtight container to place in the fridge for later. Reheat remaining oats for 2-3 minutes over low heat. Pour oats into a serving bowl. Add almond milk optional. Top with cinnamon and nutmeg. Cinnamon is known for blood sugar regulating which helps with heart disease as it also decreases inflammation. Add nuts and berries of your choice. Nuts are full of ommega3 fatty acids and berries are high in antioxidants.
