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.
- 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.
