Oats My Way!

August 31, 2009

I’m not necessarily a creature of habit, but I love oats for breakfast.  I usually eat oatmeal 5-6 times a week.  The best part is that oatmeal is so completely customizable, that I can have a different combination every time, and I never seem to get sick of them.  I’m a big steel cut oats fan, and used to make a big pot every few days, for both myself and my husband to share.  In the past few months I began experimenting, and found a combination that keeps me even more full than regular steel cut oats.

First I bring 4 cups of water to a boil.  To this I add:

-1/3 cup steel cut oats
-1/3 cup oat bran
-1/3 cup wheatberries

I let this come to a boil, and then set the pot to simmer, stirring it occasionally.  The oats are done when they are thick and well, oat consistency.

This morning I put what was left of a Justin’s Nut Butter squeeze pack in the bottom of the bowl.  I figured the hot oats would make it super melty and yummy.


I then added my oats, a little flax and some Trader Joe’s organic Superfruit:


The perfect filling breakfast with a side of grapes (see the PB sneaking out of the side?).  Now it’s off to the gym, at 9:30.  So sad, I need a job!
