Honey Almond Oatmeal

3 Oct

I was always an instant oatmeal person until I recently tried steel cut oats. While at Jamba Juice, I picked up one of their yummy oatmeal bowls for breakfast and was blown away by the nuttier flavor and chewier texture that was different than what I was accustomed to. Though they take longer to cook than other forms of oatmeal and cost a little more too, it’s worth it in my book! This dish is a wonderful healthy breakfast option and will give you great energy to start the day. You can easily customize the flavors and toppings however you want, like topping it with some fruit. Enjoy!

Honey Almond Oatmeal

1 cup steel cut oats
3 1/2 cups water
Dash of salt
1/2 cup milk
1 tsp vanilla extract
1/4 tsp ground cinnamon
1/8 tsp ground nutmeg
Slivered almonds

Boil the water in a large pot. Add the oats and salt, stir together. Reduce the heat to medium-low and cook for 30 minutes. Make sure to stir the oats occasionally so they don’t stick to the bottom of the pot. After 30 minutes, add the milk, vanilla, cinnamon and nutmeg. Stir together and cook another 10 minutes. Spoon the oatmeal into a ramekin or small bowl and top with about 1 Tbsp honey and some slivered almonds. Serve while hot and enjoy! (Makes 6 servings)
