As promised, here is the second recipe containing delicious Door County dried cherries that I will post this month. (If you missed the muffin recipe, check it here). This steel-cut oat recipe is prepared the same way as the others I’ve posted, but if you’ve never made them before, check this post for an introduction.
- 1 ¼ cup steel-cut oats
- 4 cups water
- ¼ cup maple syrup or agave
- ½ cup pecans
- ½ cup dried cherries
- ¼ tsp each cinnamon & nutmeg or ½ tsp pumpkin pie spice
- ½ cup raisins (optional)
Prepare the oats as instructed on the intro blog. Once most of the water has cooked down, stir in the sweetener, cherries, pecans and spice. Add extra raisins or even more dried cherries and portion into 8 oz mason jars. This recipe should make 7 cups – enough for every day of the week.
Screw on lids tightly and leave out on the counter to cook further, anywhere from a couple of hours to overnight. Place in the fridge afterwards and grab as needed for tasty, healthy breakfasts.
