Ever since the TV and body building days, I have eaten steel cut oats almost every day. It’s healthy and provides lasting energy to fuel your body.
I love this recipe and have been making it for years. It’s great because it’s a basic recipe that you can use to add your favorite fruit, nuts, flax seed, coconut, etc. to it and make it a little different every time. I make a double batch and keep it in the refrigerator and either microwave it or reheat in the oven for 10 minutes to bring back the crunchiness to the nuts and the toasted flavor to the oats and coconut.
Serve for breakfast topped with high protein Greek Yogurt or for a healthy dessert with vanilla frozen yogurt or no sugar added vanilla ice cream sprinkled with nutmeg and cinnamon. This versatile recipe can be used for breakfast or healthy dessert. Baking oats gives it a cookie like flavor and is true healthy comfort food. Hope you enjoy it as much as my family and I do 🙂
