- 1 cup irish steel cut oats
- 4 cups water
- 1⁄4 cup toasted walnuts, chopped
- 1⁄2 cup blueberries
- 1 pinch cinnamon
- Bring water to a boil.
- Stir in oatmeal and cook according to package directions, about 30 minutes.
- Transfer oatmeal to bowls and serve immediately with walnuts, blueberries, and cinnamon.
This is my favorite cold, damp morning breakfast! I put about 1/3 cup steel cut oats and enough water to cover it in the microwave for 1 minute. (Watch carefully so it doesn't boil over.) I then add 1/2 tbls. brown sugar and any spices that strike me and stir well. Top with the walnuts and blueberries and enjoy! It is like a warm blueberry nut muffin without all the work! :)
I used quick oats for this since that is what I had (so I used the 1/2 cup oatmeal to 1 cup water ratio on the package). I also tried blackberries with it as well. Both were yummy!
Simple goodness! Don't let the 30 minute cooking time scare you - most oatmeals are less...just check the package like Kelly says. Be sure to stir in the blueberries when it's piping hot so they "melt". Delicious!
