Steel Cut Oat Bowls with Fruit and Nuts

About the Recipe

Steel-cut oats are a wonderful whole grain to get to know. They are whole oat groats cut into small pieces with a steel blade, and they are chewier with more texture than rolled oats. Steel-cut oatmeal makes a hearty, healthy, delicious way to start the day.

Serves 2


  • 1/2 cup steel-cut oats
  • 1 tablespoon brown sugar (optional)
  • 1/4 teaspoon ground cinnamon
  • 1/2 cup unsweetened plain almondmilk, plus more to taste
  • 1/2 cup chopped mango 
  • 1/2 cup blueberries
  • 2 tablespoon walnuts, chopped 


Bring 2 cups water to a boil. Stir in oats. Reduce heat to a gentle simmer and cook uncovered, stirring occasionally, until oats are tender and water is absorbed, 25 to 35 minutes. Remove from heat and let sit 2 minutes. 

Spoon oatmeal into 2 bowls. Top with sugar (if using), cinnamon and almond milk. Top with mango and blueberries, then sprinkle with walnuts. Serve immediately.
