I did a crazy double sweat sesh this early Friday AM that started with a spin class & then a wild strength training burn, so I needed all the refuel I could get & this warm & comforting bowl definitely hit the spot!
Steel cut oats are a meal prep staple of mine because I just love the idea of getting home from an early workout & having my breaky pretty much ready for me – it makes life so much easier!
To make these oats, you really don’t have to do much:
- Portion out 1/3-1/2 cup steel cut oats (or prep them on the spot if you prefer), add 1/2 cup liquid (I do 1/4 cup homemade milk & 1/4 cup water), ceylon cinnamon, a splash of yacon or maple syrup & 1/2 a chopped pear (you could also do it with apple) & heat in a skillet over medium-high heat.
- Stir until all the liquid is absorbed, ingredients are combined & oats are creamy & thick!
- You can also add protein or collagen powder (psyllium husks are great too for added fibre), but make sure to up your liquid content by about 1/4 cup!
- Remove from the heat, add toppings & enjoy!
