This steel cut oatmeal recipe is a tasty mixture of steel cut oats, brown sugar, walnuts and bananas. What makes this Crockpot oatmeal even better is that the whole recipe can be made the night before, and the oatmeal will be ready when you wake up in the morning.
AWESOME! Great nourishment to start a day! An excellent way to get fruit and fiber. Not necessary, but may be prepared the night before - just bake 5 to 8 minutes longer. A leftover square of this oatmeal warms well in the microwave. Cream or milk poured over hot oatmeal enhances the flavor. If you are using frozen blueberries, no need to thaw - throw them in! Easy to prepare!
This recipe came from an old Amish cookbook of mine. It tastes like an oatmeal cookie. It stores well in the refrigerator and can be reheated in the microwave and served with milk. This has to sit overnight, so plan accordingly. It is well worth the wait, however!
Yes, you can always use instant. But food editor Margo True swears by steel-cut: "I love it because it has a chewier texture than instant or ordinary rolled oats and a deep, nutty flavor." It also freezes well (add the fruit after defrosting), so make a big batch on the weekend.
This is my favorite breakfast during peach season! It's sweet and comforting, and so easy because it can be made the night before and just popped in the oven in the morning. This recipe is from the Churchtown Inn in Churchtown, PA, although I modified it slightly. If you use soy milk and a dairy-free margarine, it's dairy-free!
This oatmeal-meets-muffin-tin cake recipe is perfect for having a healthy breakfast available on busy weekdays. Make a batch on the weekend and keep them in your freezer. For a grab-and-go breakfast, reheat the oatmeal cakes in the microwave for about 40 seconds.
