Today’s breakfast featured a new food for me:
Steel cut oats! I found them about 3 weeks ago and didn’t get to try them until now.
I had them with maple syrup & cinnamon for my first experience ;).
It tasted exactly the same as rolled oats oatmeal but with a crunch! Much more texture. I would not stop eating rolled oats for this but it is definitely a nice change.
- Use 4 parts water for 1 part oats (for a portion of 1/2 cup oats, use 2 cups water).
- In a saucepan, bring water to a boil.
- Stir in oats.
- After 5 minutes, reduce heat to low, cover and let simmer for 30 minutes.
- Serve with your favorite toppings!
Not a workday breakfast, though ;). If you want to eat these but don’t have time in the morning, make them in advance and reheat in the microwave.
