Steel Cut Oatmeal for the Week
adapted from: The Bitten Word
- 1 1/2 cups steel cut oats
- 6 cups water
- 2 tsp. vanilla extract
- 1 tsp. cinnamon
- 1 small banana (mashed)
- 1/2 cup organic egg whites
- splash of unsweetened vanilla almond milk
In a large sauce pan, combine oats,vanilla and water. Bring to a boil and allow to boil for 1 minute. Remove from heat and cover. Allow this to sit overnight.
In the morning, uncover the oats and bring back to a boil. Stir frequently and reduce to medium-low heat. Add in remaining ingredients. Stir the entire time while adding in the egg whites until well combined. Simmer for 15-20 minutes until oats are creamy, the water has absorbed and the oats still have a slightly chewy texture.
Top as desired! My favorites toppings are chopped banana, raisins and maple syrup or chunky all natural peanut butter and honey!
Store leftovers in the fridge in an air tight container to enjoy all week!
