Breakfast has always been a challenge for me. I'm not a fan of the typical breakfast foods.
Wait!!!!! I wasn't a fan typical!
Recently, I've found another breakfast option that I actually enjoy.
Welcome Steel Cut Oats!
Steel cut oats are hearty, nutty, and not mushy like typical oatmeal. They take about 25 mins. to cook so I make 4 servings at a time. A serving size, according to Quaker, counts as two servings to me. A serving is huge! The oats refrigerate fine and it's simple to pop them in the microwave to warm them up each morning.
I put about half a cup of frozen blueberries in the bottom of a bowl.
I add half a serving of cooked oatmeal on top. The blueberries are heated from the oatmeal and the oatmeal is slightly cooled by the berries. It works well!
I add coffee creamer (vanilla cinnamon is a great flavor choice).
Here it is, ready to mix.
Here it is mixed and ready to eat. YUM! Healthy, quick, and delicious. A perfect way to start your day.
You could use fresh, frozen, or dried fruit. I recommend trying dried cherries and adding sliced almonds. The possibilities are endless: bananas, peaches, strawberries, blackberries, mango, apples, cherries, raisins, craisins, almonds, pecans, walnuts, peanuts...
Have fun creating!
