It’s been a while since I posted a steel-cut oats recipe, but it’s been so cold lately, I couldn’t resist making a batch! If you’re unfamiliar with how I make steel-cut oats for a week’s worth of breakfasts, check out this post to find out more.
This recipe started with me just throwing a bunch of things in to see how it would turn out, but it ended up being really delicious so I decided to share it with all of you. Aren’t you lucky? Here’s what you need:
Makes 8 servings
- 4 cups oats
- 1 ¼ cups water
- ½ cup golden raisins
- ½ cup dried cranberries
- 2 apples, diced
- ¼ cup maple syrup or agave
- liberal amounts of chai spice
- ½ cup chopped walnuts
Put the oats and water in a pot with a couple dashes of salt and bring to a boil. After it’s boiling, bring the temperature down to low and cook for about 5 minutes. Once most of the water has cooked down, add in the raisins, cranberries, apples, syrup, chai spice, and walnuts. Mix well. Spoon into individual 8 oz. jars, seal tightly, and leave on the counter either overnight or for at least a couple hours. When you want a quick breakfast, just pop in the microwave for 90 seconds (with the metal lid off!) and enjoy!
