Happy Wednesday All! I'm enjoying this delicious oatmeal for a late breakfast this morning, and it's so good I wanted to share it with you guys. I took my inspiration from the McDonald's Fruit and Maple Oatmeal... except I made it even better.
Here's what you'll need: 1 cup of steel cut oats. 1 1/2 tablespoons of salted butter. 3 Cups of water and some fat free milk.
Melt the butter in a sauce pan, then add oats and toast them for 3 minutes. While the oats are toasting, boil your water. After three minutes, add water to oats. Cover and let cook for 30 minutes without stirring.
This is what I got after 30 minutes. Sometimes, the oats fully absorb the water, and in that case I add milk until they're this consistency. But the milk is completely optional.
To top it all off, I dump a tablespoon of brown sugar, a dash of cinnamon, a handful each of walnuts and raisins and half a diced apple into the oatmeal, mix it all up and chow down!
It's a pretty delicious breakfast and filling until lunch. Try it out, and enjoy!
