coconut berry steel cut oats

Most families grow up eating pancakes and bacon on Sunday morning. My family always served steel cut oats on Sunday. If you’ve never tried a warm bowl of steel cut oats, you will be surprised to find they are nothing like you started old fashioned oat. Chewy, nutty and wholesome – they are a nice alternative to your usual bowl of cereal.

Today’s version is full of flavor, vitamins and nutrients as well as plenty of protein and fiber to keep you full all morning long. As always, this is a template but feel free to make adjustments. Instead of berries, add whatever fresh fruit you have on hand: bananas, apples, peaches, pumpkin, etc. all work great. Prefer pecans to walnuts? Go right ahead.

Your spoon is waiting.
