I have had so many friends contact me for the oatmeal recipe that I have been eating so I thought I’d just post it on here.

Basic Steel Cut Oats (makes three portions)


1 cup organic steel cut oats

3 cups water

1 Tablespoon organic pure cane sugar

1 teaspoon organic cinnamon

3 Tablespoon chia seeds (I got mine in the organic bulk section at Wegmans but any health food store or whole foods would carry them)

splash of vanilla

Combine the oats, water, sugar and cinnamon in a small pot, bring to a boil then turn down to a simmer and cover. Stir every few minutes until done, around 20 minutes or so. The steel cut oats remain a little “chewy” and do not get mushy like regular old fashion or quick cooking oats. Once done stir in the vanilla, and chia seeds. I put mine in small mason jars and store in the fridge.


In the morning I microwave for about one minute thirty seconds (totally depends on your microwave) then I mix it up and added about a quarter cup of almond milk. Then add in any extras you want. Today I did dried cranberries and almond butter (I get the Woodstock brand which is great, Justin’s is awesome too just hard for me to find) on top.


The basic recipe is 260 calories per serving; with my extras my entire breakfast was 330.
