I like to make steel cut oats these days.
This is how I make my oatmeal every morning. I have yet to tire of it and even look forward to it as I’m going to sleep the night before.
For one person, I like to make one cup of oats. This makes a little more than a typical serving for one person, but I like to have the option to have a second bowl or bring the rest to work for lunch.
One cup of steel cut oats requires 4 cups of water to cook it in and about 30 minutes of your time.
What I’ve been doing is starting the oats before I work out in the morning and I stir them and check on them during the one minute breaks in my exercise program. I'm sure there are things you can do while your oats cook.
To make the best ever bowl of oats, you’ll need:
1.5 cups steel cut oats
6 cups water
1-2 bananas, sliced (I add banana while the oats cook because it makes the oatmeal taste like banana muffins or cake)
1 tsp cinnamon
Toppings of Your Choice:
whatever you like
- when water is boiling, add the oats
- stir the oats and lower heat to a simmer
- add in one sliced banana and a bit of cinnamon and stir again
- stir every 5 or 10 minutes while simmering away to prevent sticking on the bottom
- when the oats are the consistency you like, turn off the heat and spoon into a bowl
- add your favorite toppings
- demolish, yet savor
