We're big fans of oatmeal around here. Steel cut oats are our go-to for almost any batch we make. We're also big fans of keeping things simple. For this recipe, we used frozen organic blueberries, organic steel cut oats, organic coconut milk, organic seed blend, and of course, CORKY'S NUTS organic walnuts.
Serving size: 2
- Organic Steel Cut Oats
- 1 cup Frozen Organic Blueberries
- 1/2 cup Organic Walnuts
- Coconut Milk or Cream
- Seed Garnish: Chia, Flax or Ancient Blend
- Himalayan Salt
Begin by making the steel cut oat mixture according to box/container directions, depending on the amount you're serving. We like to add a little pinch of Himalayan salt to the water to balance the sweetness of the blueberries. We're not big into stirring the mixture while it's simmering. This makes it creamier (not sure why, it's just what it is) when you're only using water as the base.
While the oats are simmering, usually for about 20-30 minutes, we like to take out the blueberries and place about 1/2 cup into the bottom of each serving bowl. This way they have time to defrost a little before adding the oat mixture. You can also use this time to break up the walnuts in prep for the garnish.
Once the oats are done, pour mixture onto blueberries to desired portion in each bowl. Garnish with walnuts and various seeds to your liking and then drizzle with coconut milk or cream.
You can obviously switch out any frozen berry or nuts with this recipe.
If you're serving to a newbie, they won't know the blueberries are underneath until they spoon into the mixture. The hot oats are slightly cooled by the cool berries and the berries are warmed by the oats. It's a win win situation!
