Tasteful Tuesday 5

Today is Tasteful Tuesday!


I love making this for breakfast: Creamy Steel Cut Oats.  What makes it so creamy?  The homemade coconut milk makes it tastes rich and buttery.

Creamy Steel Cut Oats

Items you will need:

Medium saucepan

Rubber spatula


1 cup steel cut oats

3 cups homemade coconut milk (any milk variety will do, I personally love the homemade coconut milk)

¼ cup maple syrup or honey (if using regular sugar 2 Tablespoons)

1 fresh vanilla bean or 1 teaspoon vanilla extract

pinch of pink Himalayan salt


Optional add ins: fresh fruit, dried fruit, peanut butter, shredded coconut, cacao powder, cinnamon, raisins, cashews, walnuts, pecans, any variety of nuts, pumpkin seeds, hemp seeds, chia sees, any variety of seeds, etc.

Steel Cut Oats
Chia Seeds, cinnamon, hemp seeds


Optional: You can soak the entire mixture of milk, steel cut oats, maple syrup, salt and vanilla overnight to neutralize the phytic acid which makes  it easier to digest the nutrients more absorbable.

  1. Boil the milk in a saucepan on medium/high heat.
  2. Stir in the steel cut oats, pinch of salt and vanilla. Reduce heat to a low simmer for 35 minutes.  Leave uncovered.
  3. Add in your sweetener of choice and cook for an additional 10 minutes.
  4. Pour into your favorite dish and top with your toppings of choice.  Currently, I like to add a dash of cinnamon and dash of allspice.

Depending on your range/stove sometimes it needs an additional 10-15 minutes to cook unless you like the slight crunchy texture.

Serving size: This recipe will serve 4.
