I’m not necessarily a creature of habit, but I love oats for breakfast. I usually eat oatmeal 5-6 times a week. The best part is that oatmeal is so completely customizable, that I can have a different combination every time, and I never seem to get sick of them. I’m a big steel cut oats fan, and used to make a big pot every few days, for both myself and my husband to share. In the past few months I began experimenting, and found a combination that keeps me even more full than regular steel cut oats.
First I bring 4 cups of water to a boil. To this I add:
-1/3 cup steel cut oats
-1/3 cup oat bran
-1/3 cup wheatberries
I let this come to a boil, and then set the pot to simmer, stirring it occasionally. The oats are done when they are thick and well, oat consistency.
This morning I put what was left of a Justin’s Nut Butter squeeze pack in the bottom of the bowl. I figured the hot oats would make it super melty and yummy.
I then added my oats, a little flax and some Trader Joe’s organic Superfruit:
The perfect filling breakfast with a side of grapes (see the PB sneaking out of the side?). Now it’s off to the gym, at 9:30. So sad, I need a job!
