Prep Time 5 minutes
Cook Time 40 minutes
Total Time 45 minutes

Ingredients

  • 1 cup steel cut oats
  • 3 1/2 cups water
  • Pinch of salt
  • 1/2 cup milk almond milk, or soy milk
  • 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • Toppings: cinnamon dried fruit, fresh fruit, nuts

Instructions

  1. Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Add the steel cut oats and and salt. Stir.
  2. Reduce the heat to medium low and cook for 30 minutes. Make sure you stir the oats occasionally so they don't stick to the pan.
  3. When the oats start to thicken, at about 30 minutes, add in the milk and vanilla. I think the milk makes the oats creamier. Stir the oats, milk, and vanilla together and cook for ten more minutes.
  4. Add in the cinnamon and raisins or whatever toppings you wish.
  5. If you want to make bruleed oats-put the oats in a bowl, sprinkle with brown sugar and turbinado sugar. With a creme brulee torch, fire the top of the oats until the sugar is crystalized.
  6. Serve the oats hot. If you want you can let the oats cool and then portion them out into smaller containers. To reheat, I add a splash of milk and reheat in the microwave for 1-2 minutes.
  7. *Note-you can use 4 cups of water and omit the milk, I just like the creaminess the milk adds.*
