STEEL CUT OATMEAL

  • 1 Tablespoons of coconut oil
  • 1 cup of steel cut oats
  • 3 cups of boiling water
  • 1/2 of milk of choice (we like whole)
  • 1/4 teaspoon cinnamon
  • Zest of 1/2 a orange (or more, depends on you taste)
  • 1/2 a vanilla bean, split or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract
  • 1 cup Fresh or frozen blueberries
  • 1 Tablespoon whole flax seeds (optional)

Use a large pot (use that cast iorn pan and add some more iorn to your diet)

Add in the coconut oil and toast around the oats for 2 minutes or so. Add the cinnamon and orange zest the last few seconds before the boiling water goes in then reduce to a simmer adding the milk, vannila and any flax seeds or whatnot. (Coconut is always a winner around here, unsweetened)

Combine it all with a few stirs here and there, let it cook until nice and creamy about 20-30 minutes. Top with fresh fruit or if frozen, stir it in to warm the berries in the last 5 minutes or so.
