These simple Maple Cinnamon Steel Cut Oats are hearty and satisfying. Add in your favorite fruit and nuts.
Most days I like to start my day with a healthy smoothie, but when I want a warm hearty breakfast I reach for oatmeal. It fills me up for hours and it's super easy to make.
For this recipe I used steel cut oats because that's what I happen to have on hand. If you prefer rolled oats, check the liquid to oats ratio on the bag as well as the cooking time. Steel cut oats take longer to cook and require more liquid.
Pour unsweetened almond milk into a pan. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to medium-low and add oats.
Cook 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add maple syrup, cinnamon, and salt.
Remove from heat. Let sit 2 minutes. Add chopped apple and maple walnuts, or your favorite fruit and nuts.
This steel cuts oats recipe will last up to 5 days in an airtight container in the fridge.
