I know this isn't the right time of year, but my kids are crazy about oatmeal! They are also wanting to eat the minute they wake up, and are usually unwilling to wait the 5 or so minutes it takes for me to cook oatmeal for them. I stumbled upon this recipe, and it's perfect! I loved waking up this morning to a yummy smelling kitchen. Enjoy!
2 cups steel cut oats
4 cups water
4 cups milk (I used almond milk to give it a nutty flavor)
2 tsp cinnamon
You can also add in whatever... last night I put in sliced peaches and it was wonderful!
I also like apples, craisins or raisins, walnuts, frozen berries, etc.
We sweetened ours with pure maple syrup (trying to switch from the usual brown sugar) and I really enjoyed that as well!
Steel cut oats can be pretty pricey. I found a 25 lb bag of Bob's Red Mill steel cut oats at WinCo market for $20. That is a huge savings, and it is good for your food storage as well!
