Steel Cut Oats with Blueberries and Walnuts

One of my favorite ways to sweeten oatmeal naturally is to add banana. In fact, the riper the banana, the better, so this is a great recipe to use up overly ripe banoonoos. As you stir in the banana, you’ll be amazed at how quickly and easily they dissolve into the oatmeal mixture adding extra creaminess and texture. This banana trick is one of my favorite ways to avoid artificial, processed sweeteners. Added bonus? Bananas are loaded in vitamins, minerals and are a great source of energy.

Feel free to top your oats with any fruit you have on hand. By using fresh, ripe fruit you won’t need to rely on added sugar or artificial sweeteners. This recipe also works very well with raspberries, apples, blackberries or peaches.

Your spoon is waiting.

  1. Way too much sugar. Not enough good fat. Lose the non-fat milk, substitute decent Greek yogurt.

    Keep the berries, lose the starchy banana.

    Good suggestion on cinnamon and nutmeg. Never tried vanilla, might be interesting.

    McCann takes way too long. Get Bob’s Red Mill, takes only 10 – 20 mins.

    1. This was delicious! Unfortunately, I did not have vanilla or walnuts. I used cardamom and a mix of nuts instead. I appreciate a healthy oatmeal for breakfast. Thank you fir posting this. I will make this again❤️!
