Gluten Free Organic Steel Cut Oats
Eat this yummy, filling breakfast. It’s especially good on a cold morning to make you feel toasty inside. The 4 g of fiber, paired with a surprising 6 g of protein in every cup of cooked oatmeal, helps you feel full. The complex carbohydrates will also give you plenty of energy to burn calories later in the day. I never thought I’d like it, but I love to add a serving of blueberries or strawberries.

Place the following in a medium sized sauce pan and soak overnight. Add a couple T. Greek yogurt. Give it a little stir and cover the pan so you don’t get any unwanted critters in your oats. (Soaking overnight releases the enzyme inhibitors in the grain.) 

  1 C. Organic Steel Cut Oats
 3 C. Good Water
 2 T. Greek Yogurt
 Dash of Sea Salt  

 Optional Toppings:
 Fresh Organic Fruit (strawberries, blueberries)
                    Raw Honey or Organic Brown Sugar & Cinnamon
                    Chopped Organic Walnuts
                    Organic Unsalted Butter
Bring to a boil, then turn to simmer for approximately 45 minutes – one hour with the lid off. Stir occasionally. Make sure to scrape oats from bottom of pan when you stir so they don’t stick.

          Place in a bowl with organic fresh fruit, sweetener (raw honey, organic cinnamon & brown sugar), walnuts, butter and/or raw milk (if desired).

Serves 3.
