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
 

  • Bring the water to a boil in a large pot. Add the steel cut oats and and salt. Stir.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • Add in the cinnamon and raisins or whatever toppings you wish.
  • 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.
  • 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.
  • *Note-you can use 4 cups of water and omit the milk, I just like the creaminess the milk adds.*
